Choosing between providers

edited April 2014 in Help

I have currently a hard time choosing a provider to host my site on. I have found some pretty good 512/yearly deals from Crissic, HostUS, NodeServ and VPSDime but they all offer like the same specs for the same price.

So Im curious if there has been any drama going on related to these providers last month? If there is anything I should need to know about those roviders? If there are uptime issues etc. Reviews etc are welcome aswell.

    Basically;

    Crissic Solutions, Skylar is a top guy and seems to know his stuff however as far as I know he is working alone, correct me if I am wrong.

    HostUS, Alex seems like a very knowledge young lad and I can see him going quite far if he carries on in the direction he is doing.

    NodeServ not heard/dealt with them.

    VPSDime is one of the Nodisto brands and I know Oktay as working with him takes stuff very seriously and doesn't mess around.

  • All 4 provide more than adequate service, for me.

  • @Jack said: VPSDime is one of the Nodisto brands and I know Oktay as working with him takes stuff very seriously and doesn't mess around.

    Basically you should add that you sold DotVPS to Nodisto as well as working for them.

    Going back to the topic: RamNode is a provider that I can recommend.

    Reality does hurt!

    I only work for DotVPS not VPSDime nor any other Nodisto brand.

  • I only have experience with VPSDime and Crissic. I feel they both deserve a vote. Great services.

    Nodisto is a parent of DotVPS. It's a same thing.

    From these providers, I would choose Crissic.

    VikingLayer now offers VPS resource pools. Ask me about them today. :)

  • Yeah, shut up Jack!

  • Using hostus for about 1 year and so far so good...

    I ❤ Laravel

  • alexvolk said: Going back to the topic: RamNode is a provider that I can recommend.

    Don't see RamNode in the list so it's not the topic :)

    Of the listed providers, I only have experience with Crissic.

    They're excellent.

    Mr alexvolk is just angry as he was told to leave DotVPS and lets leave it at that.

    Running a plex media server (monitored close) on a Crissic 15/year vps. It works very well.

    I have no vps with any of the other providers (soon vpsdime for another project).

    ask me about Storage offers
    Get a LES NAT VPS! and some Shared Hosting offers

  • @SkylarM said: Wrong. :)

    About you being a nice guy or you working alone? ;-)

    I recommend Prometeus, the best provider ever!

    Working alone. Or maybe I'm not a nice guy at all :(

  • Thanks for all the help! Its hard choosing between Crissic Solutions and VPSDime. First I wanted to host 1 project on Crissic Solutions and another project of mine on VPSDime but sadly the second project neither does Crissic Solutions and VPSDime want to host it. So now I have to choose between both of them.

    How is the performance on Crissic and VPSDime? Is the hard drive speed good? Is the network good? Are the nodes oversold? etc.

    VPSDime = nodes oversold, I get some pretty bad network sometimes, and processes get killed randomly. Otherwise it's okay.

    Crissic = decent, I would guess a little oversold/high peak times.

    We oversell, but less than most hosts do. KVM is 100% dedicated ram and HDD. No thin provisioning or ram overselling. Worth a looksee if inside your budget. A few benchmarks are in this thread: https://vpsboard.com/topic/3899-crissic-512mb-kvm/ (look at my recent post)

    do you also want him to tell you they are friends on FB?

  • @seaeagle said: alexvolk

    If you want so, I'll tell you.

    @Jack it was meant for transparency, I'm not angry about your service at all.

    Wrong! :)

  • @0xdragon said: VPSDime = nodes oversold, I get some pretty bad network sometimes, and processes get killed randomly. Otherwise it's okay.

    We oversell the memory, yet we keep at least 48GB free memory on the nodes. We sell 6GB ram on 384GB nodes, while people sell 2GB ram on 32GB nodes. Tell me who is more overselling here?

    We do not oversell the disk IO and we constantly monitor it.

    Nodes are connected at 4 x 1Gbps or 2 x 1Gbps to the switches with full utilization guarantee from our providers.

    I think you are on a Los Angeles node with Colocrossing. I agree the network can be bad at times since they use Nlayer and major DDoS protection providers use Nlayer in LA. And when the attack comes at that provider, it unfortunately saturates their capacity and we end up getting a little packet loss and performance penalty.

    Processes getting killed is something not a single customer has reported us. That shouldn't happen. Please open a ticket and we can look at your container.

    I had this issue when I had my container which I think was cancelled a little while ago.

    The process was Firefox, from what I remember. It was being used as a jump box.

    However I am having issues with network and CPU on my Winity :/ perhaps I was mixed up between the brands. Sorry!
