  • If all you care about is speed and benchmarks, click the 'Benchmarks' tab of the links you posted.

    Otherwise, they're both solid hosts.

    It doesn't really matter when they were registered, they could be an as good or better host. I haven't used them so can't say. Bbeen with Hostigation for a while now and had zero issues, plus Tim's been excellent at what he does.

  • They are also minecraftlayer.com

    Both of them are solid. Flip a coin and dive in.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    Don't say you're ever active on this forum again.. Come on, you must have seen them around here. They're both good, but yeah Hostigation gets my pick just because I've used it and haven't used RamNode ;)

  • Also ramnode.com looks too much like trying to copy the name of ramhost.us . At least initially i got confused.

  • Hostigation is great - I have one of Tim's VPSs for DNS myself!

    @rds100 said: ramnode.com was registered in May this year?

    Yes, but as someone mentioned, we've been hosting VPSs for much longer (over a year now).

  • Hm, I could move my main site to Hostigation. Only $0.50 more.

  • As a customer of both they are both great and offer similar feature sets

    both have beefy servers and fast networks

    Same, I'm always looking for a reason to buy a VPS from @Nick_A and I don't get that feeling very often.

    Buy one?

  • @dominicl said: Buy one?

    He buys from me, why shouldn't I pay for my service if I require it as well. Or am I being completely crazy here expecting to pay my bills?

    I bought a small vps today for our dns management in the usa. RamNode has an excellent support! Performance on SSD cached nodes are fine!

    You wouldn't put a hostigation sticker on your bumper, talk about it in the coffee shop while writing poetry, or brag to all your friends. But you'll get a server that does it's dang job and has a serious uptime problem...in that it doesn't go down enough to be considered a LEB.

    And there's my two endorsements for the day.

  • I personally have a RamNode and it's great, I'll buy a Hostigation now since it seems good.

  • Been with RAMNode for about 2 weeks now (KVM 512MB RAM). Nick made me a personal plan because the SSD-cached KVM servers aren't available yet (additional disk space until SSD-cached KVM are released). Really awesome support, EXTREMELY fast network, very amazing host.

    I just got a RamNode today, @Nick_A worked with me to meet my needs and price. Thus far I'm quite pleased with my purchase, I mean KVM with IPv6 in Atlanta, what more could I ask for?

    I've setup my looking glass if anyone is curious as to how the network is setup, I am content with the speed testing I've done so far, they could be faster but the latency is excellent for me. The only downside I see so far as is that the bandwidth solely TINET.

  • Between the two processors which is better

    Intel Ivy Bridge E3-1230v2 (3.3GHz) Quad Core processors - RamNode E3-1230 (3.2GHz) - Hostigation

  • Not much in it really.

  • TazTaz Disabled

    .1 difference. Which you wouldn't even notice in many cases.

  • You're not going to notice the difference between those processors. Both companies will take good care of you and Nick and Tim are both nice people. It basically comes down to location.

  • Clock rate doesn't tell the full story of the performance difference between those two processors, but both are very powerful and more than enough for most applications. The Ivy Bridge line is frankly amazing, but you should not base your decision purely on Sandy vs Ivy Bridge. Let everyone know what features attracted you to us and Hostigation and they'll be able to give you more helpful feedback than just "I LOVE BOTH WOOO" (which is much appreciated :D).

    @Nick_A I think Tim uses multiple E3's in most of the older KVM/OVZ nodes.

    The 1GB Plans + ones are E5's...

    As in a lot of the nodes are E3's.

  • @Nick_A said: Multiple E3s?...

    All OpenVZ nodes are E3-1230(v1&2) for 128/256mb OpenVZ except 1 node in Charlotte which is an AMD Opteron 6128, and All 512/1g/2g nodes are E5-2620 KVM could be E3-1230(v1&2), E3-1270, L5520, E5-2620

    I have just over 30 nodes so sometimes the gear is older as I began upgrading the network in Jan of 2010 taking all the Opteron 2350's and older out of service.

    You can't go wrong with either, both offer SSD Cached nodes, decent port speeds & good personalised support.

    Nick has pure SSD options, which would be the main difference (plus location if thats important to you Tim: LA & Charlotte, Nick: Dallas & Atlanta).

    Ah ok - I took it to mean Tim figured out how to combined E3s on a single server!

  • @muj E3-1230s are nice processors, 1230 and 1230v2 have no big differences. We using E3-1270 and have enough CPU power :)

    RamNode, nice support! We using it for our ns300.fmbackbone.de dns server in the usa.
