Who are your favorite providers that you've used for 3+ years?

monkmonk Member

I've been getting back into messing with vps's lately and am curious to learn what providers that've been around a while stand out to long term customers and what they've done to stand out.

  • top provider on LET, very fast and professional service.

    Thanked by 2monk maverick
  • @PHP_Friends is my go to.

    Thanked by 3monk maverick pike
  • @hosthatch has been flawless, @Francisco's BuyVM is really good but always out of stock when you need it.
    For small NAT vps's @Abd's and Webhorizon has never failed me.

  • When I am made to choose my favourite, mine is

    No complaints and no down time and support service is too friendly.

    I have been using them since 5 years

  • @nessa RamNode never let me or my servers down.
    @InceptionHosting thanks for NAT boxes and Spirit

    hosthatch, their offers/sales services are horrible at support. When they work, they work smooth af.
    But if something breaks? Better find a new service cause it will most likely not get fixed in this lifetime. I have services from them, but I can't really rely on it with peace of mind. As long as it works, I'm a satisfied customer.

    nexusbytes, after one year I abandoned ship asap, they had once incident after another, every time the owner promised better but never delivered. They really lost me when I requested my affiliate credit and it took about 3 months and only got solved when I complained on the forums. In these 3 months they closed my affiliate withdrawal ticket more than once...

    virmach, this is my oldest provider (4 years and counting I think?). Can't say I'm happy af with them, but they are the cheapest and offer decent support. Probably the only one I'd recommend so far.

    racknerd, similar experience as with virmach but I ditched them after a year. Server was top notch the first two months or so, then the CPU performance constantly degraded to the point where my raspberry pi 2 had more computing power than their 3 core intel VPS. I completely understand that abusers can happen, but it's their responsibility to monitor the node and take action, not mine to tap their should and let them know someone is using more cpu than they should. About 6 months of the service the performance was like this, so it was either oversold to oblivion or abused and staff didn't gave a duck about it.

    hetzner cloud, I've used this infrequently for a few months every year since they launched, every time the performance was better or at least equal to the last one, so they're pretty consistent, cheap and good.

    Recently got inceptionhosting and ramnode, so far they are outperforming everything I ever had (inceptionhosting in particular)

  • Hetzner & Netcup

    I've never been able to stay more than 2 years with a single provider without something happening and me getting really mad. Today I operate my own servers and network in a large data center.

    None that are still in business.

    AVOID: Webline Services
    Poor service for high prices. I have been with them longer than 3 years and do NOT recommend them. I will not renew again, and wonder why I kept the VPS a long time.

    First start became their client on 2013 until 2015
    And then back again since 2020 with their sensational BF deal until now

    Actually became virmach client since 2017
    And i start dislike them from last year, dissapointing since they starting migration to newer hardware and datacenter and planing not to renew my VM this year
    I am kinda like their old colocrossing version they had solid network and uptime but for now just meh, like felt down to the bottom of line for my provider list
