Who has the best uptime?

Who has the best uptime?

NexusNexus Member
edited July 2012 in General

I know this might sound like a broad question, but I am looking for a host that is highly, highly reputable and is known to deliver awesome uptime. I am going to be hosting a forum, (That's it). And the forum cannot have downtime at all, it will be pretty active. I understand a couple minutes for a reboot or something, but I am looking for a host that goes balls to the walls. I am right now looking at hostigation and the reviews are incredible. Can anyone else chime in?

Budget = MAX 5$/month for now. I am looking for easy expandability/upgrade ability once my business grows.

    5$ wont justify if you want 100% uptime. Get a vps.net cloud for about 10$. I know it is above your budget bud cloud would be the best option for you in your case.

    Time is good and also bad. Life is short and that is sad. Dont worry be happy thats my style. No matter what happens i won't lose my smile!

    Just to add, a vps node complete reboot can take upto 30-45 minutes depending on how many vps hosted.

  • A lot of providers offer pages to check the uptime of their nodes. Have you looked at them or the offers section?

    @Brandon no regular provider can gurantee 100% uptime unless they have multiple location failover ( cloud setup). 100% is completely impossible.

    Ninja, Thanks for the info. I know I wont receive 100% uptime, but I just need a higher end host out here on LEB. I've been reading reviews lately and I found Hostigation, but I don't know if there is better?

    If you cut down 100% uptime requirements, you got hostigation, buyvm and some other provider.

    buy 2 vps and setup failover or 100% uptime is impossible

    It doesn't ;) Heck even AWS went down after a lightning storm.

    @NinaHawk really you're suggesting vps.net? I would warn anyone even thinking of going with them!

  • @NinjaHawk said: Get a vps.net cloud for about 10$.

    Search for VPS.net at WHT - They have more downtime than nearly any other provider...

    Opinions/Posts are to be assumed my own/personal and not company related unless obvious - Content is protected by free speech laws in the US (where LET is hosted) and Austria (where i live). I am currently not working @ EDIS due to health issues.

  • NexusNexus Member

    @NinjaHawk, buyvm is all sold it out unfortunately. What "Other provider" do you speak of? I am leaning towards hostigation at the moment.

    @nexus go for hostigation then. They got 7 days money-back terms.

    @William well I guess I was lucky than.

    RocketVPS (139 days+) , Prometeus (90 days+) - 100 % uptime ChiagoVps (99.99%), ramhost (99.9%), hostigation (99.96%) buyvm (99.93%)

    PS: all servers are monitored for atleast 4-5 months Rocketvps is the only one which will be more than $5 without discount. I pay 4.99 for a 256/512 openvz VPS

  • jcalebjcaleb Moderator

    Agree for rocket... it's worth your money...

  • @NinjaHawk said: @serverbear how does some one get listed there?

    The list is based on offers made here and at LEB. I initially had you listed from this offer but after a few days your test IP went offline.....

  • @NinjaHawk said: @Brandon no regular provider can gurantee 100% uptime unless they have multiple location failover ( cloud setup). 100% is completely impossible.

    Yes of course but never said that???

  • TazTaz Disabled

    @sleddog fixed the test ip (Actually took that vps offline ).

  • @NinjaHawk said: @sleddog fixed the test ip (Actually took that vps offline ).

    I added the .60 IP you mentioned in your sales thread. Hope that's OK...

    Cheers and Thanks :D
