Help me find the hosting provider that fits me best
I am planning on switching hosting providers, as I am not quite satisfied with the quality the current one. My VPS is down every 5-6 hours because "a neighbour VPS gets ddosed" and I am quite fed up with this as they have been unable to resolve this despite them claiming.
I would like to run a tf2 server, a csgo server (neither of these are popular nor would get loads of players) and two minecraft servers with the maximum slot of 20. Now 4 cores and 8gigs of ram has been doing well for me, in peak hours the servers only use around 5GB of ram.
However, none of the options I've considered seem to fit my needs which is:
- At least 2 vCPU
- 4-8GB of ram
- 50GB of storage
- EU location
- At least minimal ddos protection.
- under 12euros vat included.
When looking through my options I considered the following hosts, as these are the names I am the most familiar with:
Contabo: I've mostly seen bad reviews about them, especially concerning their hidden fees, non-existant tech support team and awfully oversold cpus with limited ssd speed. The oversold cpu concerns me the most, because 6 cores sound really good but if 50% of it is stolen then it's all worthless. On the other hand does it even matter for a server that has around 20-25 players?
OVH: Non-existant support, too pricey for 2vcpu and 4gb of ram.
Hetzner: I have rented a vps from them in the past and after an hour of running it got ddosed so I had to ask for a refund. Not sure about how things are now.
Netcup: Their billing and cancellation stuff seems a bit sketchy to me. The VPS prices seem good but the ToS prohibits extensive CPU usage (which the two mc server would very much breach) and I need to sign a contract period of at least 12 months..
Hostika: Quite cheap lithuanian host, Shared 100mbps per node really concerns me, but the prices are at least managable and they provide a promo code to get 50% off of my first pay.
Do you know about any hosting providers who you think would fit my needs and you had a positive experience with? Or which one should I choose from these options?
I know that there are several offers on this, but I am trying to find a legitimate service provider, not some sketchy deals.
