About Us

RamNode exists for one purpose: to provide affordable VPSs with powerful features. Our years of hosting experience as both clients and providers have inspired us to offer the kind of hosting that clients want at the kind of prices clients want to pay. Though our prices are low, performance is our main focus. We know that our best assets are our loyal customers, so we strive to provide hosting they will rave about to their fellow internet users. Our VPSs are perfect for a wide range of applications. With our top quality hardware, we can guarantee that our clients will get the most bang for their buck.

Our SuperMicro enterprise grade servers are stocked with Intel 320 and Samsung 830 SSDs in lightning fast RAID10 arrays. Our servers provide incredible I/O as well as the safety of drive redundancy. We use powerful Intel Sandy Bridge and Ivy Bridge E3 Quad Core processors on our VPS nodes. These CPUs run at a minimum 3.2GHz per core. CPU is allocated on a fair share basis per VPS, only limited by the number of cores in each plan.

Currently, our VPSs are hosted in Dallas, TX. Atlanta, GA offerings should be available in a few weeks.

=====================================

In addition to our great hardware, each VPS comes with the following features:
