I am noticing these providers are all switching to SSD drives, all while cutting the amount of storage down.
I'd like to do a speedtest comparison with my VPS at flipperhost. What routine are you using to test?
# check network speed wget -O speedtest-cli https://raw.githubusercontent.com/sivel/speedtest-cli/master/speedtest.py chmod +x speedtest-cli ./speedtest-cli
I was scanning the list and thought that one provider was "ClownCloud." Sorry; almost spit out my coffee...
I will cautiously say that Hosting73 is still going strong for me. I got a deal on a 2-core, 4-gig memory, 50gb SSD for $25/year in the Atlanta center. I have another small one there as well and both work very well. The only problem I've had is on the smaller one with what they refer to as "abusers" sucking up all the CPU time. Hosting73, when contacted, has routinely booted users when abuse impacts other users.I think HostedSimply needs to be pulled from the list. The endless down times, and other issues I am having is going to have to pull out six months before my one year of service is over.
While, they have quick responsive to support, they tend to point the finger at you.
Me: My server is down
HS: Please check your end, as all looks okay here.
Me: Hello?? How can I check my end when the server is down??
Over the past few months we have been met with many challenges within the hosting business. Some that have not been overcome.
As result of this we will be closing our doors. We will be shutting down this Monday 12/9/2019. We are taking this time to let our customers know so that they may backup and retrieve all of their data before then.
We deeply apologize for this inconvenience.
