Q3 2016 Top Provider Poll Results

jarjar Member, Patron Provider
edited November 2016 in Announcements

Hey everyone!

I'd like to share with you the results of the recent top provider poll.

Top 5 Provider spots:

  1. BuyVM (51 votes)
  2. RamNode (42 votes)
  3. OVH (33 votes)
  4. HostUS (31 votes)
  5. Prometeus, DigitalOcean, Dediserve (each with 17 votes)

Top 3 New Providers:

  1. BudgetNode
  2. Virmach
  3. ImpactVPS

As much as I would have loved to list more than 3 new providers, the votes were too scattered. To list 5 spots, I would list every provider (15 providers) that was voted on.

Transparency:
https://www.dropbox.com/sh/8isfz58k1hyylpk/AABVRKLZA_u-4zPI68tsG7pRa?dl=0
(Note: While I tried to combine brands I may have missed some, but they wouldn't have impacted the top 5)

    No surprises perhaps, however it does demonstrate that even after the coupons are gone providers such as BuyVM and RamNode still remain at the top, quality over most other items.

    Of course many are likely still running old discounted packages but even still it shows people have stuck with them and that is great.

    Interesting to see Prometeus fall away. Mao would say it's the lack of coupons however the top 2 providers debunk that as they don't offer coupons at all or very infrequently. RamNode have their SSD10 on site as a usual feature though.

    Overall Prometeus do appear to be falling out of favour with the community, mostly from what I have seen due to issues with IWStack. Still a great provider though.

    HostUS have a well deserved placing given the general reviews and feedback.

    I still think these polls are really useful.

    @Jarland, it would be good for transparency to see the full list of counted votes, also helps to see who was nearly there in the top 5.

  • Thanks for the work, @jarland!
    Congratulations to the winners (on the member & provider side)! :-)

  • jarjar Member, Patron Provider

    I may have jumped the gun a bit... #5 is actually shared. Updating.

  • jarjar Member, Patron Provider

    Updated. That's what I get for just cutting off at the number I needed. So #5 spot holds 3 providers.

  • MikePTMikePT Moderator, Patron Provider

    It was a success! And full transparency, awesome!

  • Indeed a success, hopefully the number of people voting increases next time though, its nowhere near the old days unfortunately

    I had VDR4 too once, Pmed a girl I'd never met before in an alley, enjoyed it at the time but the itching afterwards was not worth it.

    Moral of the story? You can't see VDR4, so always practice safe Pming folks.

  • Sweet, thanks :)
    Congratulations to all the winners

    @jarland @alfred for the double package of prize #4, is it right?

    Looks like Alfred also won one of prize #3.

    I guess when it rains, it pours.

  • Congratulations to all the winners, both providers and members!

  • No surprises here - except maybe OVH... Never had a service with them -- I'm surprised they are up there!

    Have you not visited LET last 3 months?

    Thanked by 1Junkless
  • LOL - guess I just never paid close enough attention! Must've been on let with my eyes closed or something... Maybe it's the fancy ads that distract me...

  • AnthonySmithAnthonySmith Member, Patron Provider

    Nice one, just imagine how many man hours would be saved and how much participation would increase by spending a few hours automating this :)

    I always did find it a bit odd that hosts that haze zero presence or interest in LET/B are included.

    For reals. It'd probably be easy for a python developer, someone good at parsing data from pages. I'm just doing bash commands against a list of files anyway.

    That or perhaps just a real poll system, if I could ever find one I'd trust with that.
