edited November 2013 in General

The end of a quarter, the start of a new top providers poll. The poll will likely be closed in late October or after a sustained period of inactivity in this post. The precise date will be clearly noted at a later date.


-Please post only once in this thread (any offtopic comments will be removed).

-Pick your favorite three and list them with one being your most favourite.

-The host you rank number one will receive 3 points, number 2 will receive 2 points and number three 1 point.

-As well as the above three, you can also list as many honorable mentions as you wish. This can help providers in the final ranking.

-Providers cannot vote for themselves.

Voters should have been registered prior to the creation of this thread. Suspicious entrants may be removed.

    1. prometeus - no competition whatsoever.
    2. ovh - was lucky and got n2800's with new hdds.

    • inceptionhosting, providerservice, nqhost, necs: rock solid xen/kvm that just works.

    • fusioned: awesome performance and good personal support.

    • edis: didnt vote for them last time, but this period all my edis location have been ace.

    • finaltek: .cz kvm with ok network and unlimited traffic and /64 ipv6.

    • ramnode: their small ovz containers are out of this world.

    • fliphost: didn't like the ninja edit of bw allotment they did on storage servers (from unlim to 500gb), but top notch on every other aspect.

    1. Castlegem - UK/London
      This location is still my #1: 200 days of uptime. It's not really cheap, but the performance is really incredible. Great job, Bernhard! It's running my websites (blogs & wikis) mainly and a few other smaller things, that only KVM can do.
    2. Ramnode - NL/Alblasserdam
      After a bad start for the node's hardware it's running brilliant now. I use it for file delivery for my websites and for sharing files with friends. Most "bang for the buck" I have seen so far!
    3. OnePoundWebHosting - UK/Fareham
      I have this for an irc client and as a personal proxy and gateway. I can remember the ip (only 5 digits) so I wouldn't need any dns to connect to it. Basically, the ip is my only reason I love it so much, but it also has a good uptime (157 days) and runs smooth.

    HM: INIZ (NYC) -> wow, that's incredibly cheap concerning the location, Torqhost, Low End Spirit

    1. AllSimple - true professional host
    2. Inceptionhosting/LowEndSpirit - it's Spirit after all. Keep it that way!
    3. Castlegem - true gem among hosts

    HM: Prometeus/Iperweb, Ramnode, XenVZ/OpenITC

    All hosts above deserve top position, but sadly it's not possible to do that so I reckon that HM hosts from my list will get deserved votes from others and voted for those who get less attention but also offer top quality service.

    1: RamNode: their Seattle location is great; other locations have higher latency than you would expect because of fewer upstream carriers but they're decent too for the price. Most stable LEB's that I have. They have the best support out of all these hosts too (combination of professional, responsive); but usually don't need to contact them.

    2: EDIS: I'm using their services in a few countries. The variety is cool.

    3: Backupsy: 500 GB KVM for $7.00/month...

    HM: StormVZ (now INIZ or something stupid like that): the payment gateway is really annoying, but I have a server in Chicago that's been running well. Could use more bandwidth but I think they increased that recently (effectively doubled by making one of incoming/outgoing unmetered).

    HM: SSDVPS: sometimes my VPS goes unreachable and support takes a while to fix it, but otherwise it's a nice LA location.

    HM: TORQHost: interesting location, stable servers, good CPU/network/etc.

    HM: Prometeus: has a bit higher latency than you'd expect but the servers themselves are very very stable.

    HM: Liquid Solutions: their support sucks and the Seattle node that everyone is apparently on always has hours of downtime each month (and when people complain they pretend like it's just one of twenty nodes or some bullshit), but when the server's not down it's decent. Prefer RamNode for Seattle now though.

    HM: End of Reality: their Dallas location has been pretty stable for me, none of the other locations have worked out though (chronic network issues).

    HM: DotVPS: I use their service in U.K. and it works well. Chicago, not so much. Support is fast at responding but not professional.

    HM: Aim2Game: have a server with 10 IPv4 in Buffalo, works well (except low CPU quality).

    HM: CloudShards: I have lots of IPv4 addresses on one of their servers and it works well. Better CPU than Aim2Game as well, even though I think it has less cores.

    HM: BlueVM: ultra-cheap VPS. The quality matches the price, so servers go down for hours often but you can't really complain for the price. Unfortunately I'm locked in to some of their yearly plans (want to switch to Dedicated Minds; although maybe wanted since DM suddenly is moving).

    HM: Dedicated Minds: haven't been using them for long since I think they just started. But their combination of carrier in New York is pretty awesome, get really good connection from everywhere. Edit: moved from my second to HM since they randomly are migrating to NJ with <24 hour notice.<br />
