Feedback Needed. Best VPS Provider for you?

Hello guys,

We always talk about problems in LET but i'd like to know your good experiences.
Which provider can give real uptime as they advertise themselves?

I wonder if any budget providers really exist with great uptime and long time service.

Thank you!

Thanked by 1uptime

    InceptionHosting, LiteServer, Netcup, UltraVPS, Virmach for business critical reliable VPS. Never had any significant downtimes so I just list them in alphabetical order.

    kts24.com, first-root.com for great support and individual solutions.

    cociu, OVH and Online.net for dirt cheap "Dedi at VPS pricing" playground.

  • I have two NATs, one with Gullo @Cam and the newest with MrVM @mikho. One KVM with WisHosting @exception0x876 and one Kimsufi @ninzo59 Atom dedi. I don't recall any downtime with any of these providers.

    (Learnt the hard way, though. Months of lurking on LET after a small lesson from LEB paid off in terms of separating the wheat from the chaff)

    To be fair, I had 2 recent outages.
    LAX because of a DDoS attack on something on the same network and DE had a network outage (~30min).

    Otherwise it is stable for a non SLA service.

    To be fair, if I don't notice it or if it doesn't affect me in any tangible way, it's not downtime to me. If people have mission critical things on their servers, they really shouldn't be here on LET because they should be paying a lot more for a provider they can sue for lots of liquidated damages should something happen.

    Im using Hetzner for dedicated but also for VPS since many years. I had one CX (old VPS line) and many newer cloud VPS without a single failure. Theyre are a serious company while having very cheap prices, that's what I like the most. Hetzner requires to verify your ID with them if you create a new customer account.

    Since they increased their pricing, Leaseweb (AMS location) may not be the best if youre looking for cheap hosting. However the quality of their services and network is one of the best so they need to be mentioned. From what I know they verify your data by calling you and asking for confirmation.

    Since December I'm using php-friends, they are more premium in terms of location and network and also offer very decent firewall. Fell in love with their minimalistic billing and solusvm themes. I doubt you get real dedicated cores but at least they cannot complain if youre using 100% all the time, never did that on my own though. Cannot comment on their verification process as they didnt ask for more than the usual billing info.

    I havent used Clouvider on my own, but theyre #1 on my wishlist when a nice deal shows up for some months now + a use case has been found.

    They are great at $1. Mediocre at current price point.

    Perfect (no problems ever for many years since I used them):

    Problems happen just once after 1.5+ year of usage:

    • https://fastpipe.io (superb provider)
    • OVH (small issues with networks, or disk drive)
    • BudgetNode (small issue with a network)
    • forgot name of the provider, really... I used some long time ago...

    Something like that after using around 60+ providers on LET since 2011

    60+ providers in 8 years? No, not suspicious as fuck at all. I don't know what you're doing, but you're doing it wrong.

  • AlphaVPS has been great so far. (They do need a website redesign :) )

    Not OpenVZ. The OVZ box keeps getting high load alerts and goes down for ~1 minute occasionally.

    The KVM box from them has been solid so far.

    Providers I can recommend: BuyVM - AlphaVPS - MXRoute

  • If only taking into account those with "budget VPS hosting", I have good and long experience with

    Contabo (4+ years), DatabaseByDesignLLC (7+ years), Scaleway (3+ years), SSDNodes (5+ years)

    Less long, but good experience with OVH, BuyVM, AlphaRacks.

    You've had a good experience with AlphaRacks? Mine was nightmarish, barely worked (waiting a solid 10 seconds for SSH password prompt) and unsubscribing from their newsletter never worked, I still get their spam to this day lol.

    I am using them for serveral months now and except for the one time when my VM wasn't able to boot (still not sure why), I didn't have any outages and the VM just worked fine. I should mention that what I'm running in the VM is just a little python script so it should be almost same as idling.

    So clearly performance varies wildly from node to node.

    Does any of these Best providers have a good promo going on? Can someone point me to one. Looking for a 2GB RAM VPS, 20GB Disk space and at least one dedicated vCPU. Direct Admin included would be a plus.

    Thanks.

    It's not a german thing. Things like power and similar are very high priced in germany. It's more like people willing to overcommit ressources like crazy.

    You have a really well-designed website! Usually I expect to see a website made with cheap templates when I click a provider’s signature link here on LET, but your website is very unique and visually appealing. It made me had an impulse to go directly buy a server from you, despite I barely know anything about your company.
