Should I go for Ramnode or Scaleway for a single website

Hi,
I have to host a static website with a blog on ghost cms (on node.js).
I am considering two choice i.e. ramnode 256 mb vps or scaleway c1

Website will receiving normal traffic like 100 users/day until blog gets really famous.

Which will be a good choice?

^-^!

    Ramnode

  • isnt that obvious..

    Ramnode if you want quick upgrades, but if you want no neighbours/bare metal scaleway seems the obvious choice.

  • RamNode easily. But check out Vultr $2,50/month plan or Nodion €12/year.

    I have a few hundred daily on my Nodion VPS, pretty solid and DDoS protection.

    I'd use shared hosting for that. Let someone else deal with the reboots and sw upgrades. If you want to use a vps, a yearly 128MB should be plenty.

    #lexit spread the word.

    Either will work well until the site gets really big.

  • Can someone please explain to me why "Ramnode" and not "Scaleway" ?

    Node js on shared cpanel hosting?

    Scaleway uses no raid unless that changed.

    AFAIK they never actually said what they were using.

    I like my uptime down low and my servers all hacked. Can see me droppin' twenty-fours with a router in the rack.
    Ya like ya Switch-Ports hot and ya servers all hacked. If ya pings real high and ya networks pitch black.

    I did host Ghost on a shared hosting a few months ago.

  • Can you explain why you narrowed it down to 2 hosts that have very little in common?

  • Anything because for 100 Visitors /daily ramnode or scaleway will not make much difference but

    If you can go with Aruba 1 Euro month plan

    Make your choice on your own But i can help you to make them right.

    I had two choices that is less resources but solid uptime and hosting or more resources but slow processing.

    Buyshared allows it ;)

  • For a blog with 100 users per day, I would go with 2 extremely cheap vps, first as live server and second as a live mirror, in case of an outage.
    Even a NAT 256MB vps from Inception hosting normally could do fine in handling such a low traffic website.
    That being said, if you have to chose between scaleway and ramnode, I would go with scaleway. You will get a dedicated server for the same price and a good traffic all around EU. You don't need Ramnode's CPU cores for such a small website. You really do not need RAID for such a project (RAID is not backups!) but you will need whatever you chose a backup plan. Backups have nothing to do with how good the original server is, or if it uses raid or not. Disasters always can happen.

    Aruba cloud looks really good in that pricing but I'm wondering why there's a big gap between small and medium plan

    subsidised loss-leader plan.

    grab it before their numbers just stop adding up. I suspect vmware memory deduplication helps too.

  • from my experience, npm install for ghost blog consume 450-490mb ram. So need minimal 512mb ram.

    That what I was worried of. Aruba first plan will be able to handle that? I hope that.

    I would recommend atleast go for 512 RAM. I also recommend for firewall to avoid abuse situations .
