I have not had so much time the last months, and I have only tested a few new hosts. But I’m very happy with my current hosts, there is almost no downtime, and the sites is just up and working, nothing more, nothing less.
Prometeus.com 130+ days
Prometeus is still my main host, and there is a good reason for that. They do not have any downtime at all on any of my servers the last 130 days. My main VPS has a uptime of 128 days now. That really good.
With a host that always is working, there is no need to contact support. But I did that after some high load on my server. After a quick reply with lots of servers stats, I did see that the issue was inside my VPS and not on the node. So after a quick stopping of some processes, the load was back to normal.
You really get value for your money here, and I will recommend Prometeus.com all day long.
I current have three VPS servers with Prometeus.com, located in Milan, Italy.
Urpad.net 120+ days
15.01.2014: Urpad.net is not one of my favorite hosts any more. They was sold, and all went downhill, and they closed down all EU servers and moved all to the US.
Urpad.net gives you lots of value for your money. They have really good prices and offer really good hardware.
I have had some downtime on one of my VPS, but still, nothing big. Their support is super fast, and you forget that you are using a unmanaged provider.
There is nothing else to write, they have really good support, good hardware and service, good prices. Their servers work, their network work. And you can sleep every night not having to worry about your websites.
I currently have three VPS servers in the different locations from Urpad.net
KnownHost 110+ days
KnownHost.com is my main backup VPS in the US. It’s the only VPS with Plesk I have left. All other servers uses Virtualmin. But I like to at least have one Plesk VPS since I have used Plesk almost for ever.
It’s maybe boring to reed about all my VPS servers just working. But in fact I have been very lucky with all my providers, and KnownHost is on the top on the list. Since I got my VPS with them I have never opened one support ticket. I have not had any reason. The server works 100%, no issues at all. No downtime at all.
Again you get what you pay for, and KnownHost is a fully managed hosts, and it’s seems like they do proactive work also, since there has been no issue at all at my end.
A highly recommended hosting company.
I have one VPS with KnownHost.com
RamNode.com 110+ days
Ramnode.com is one of my favorites, they have upgraded their hardware and added new DC and have really a good product based on their lightning fast pure SSD nodes and their really fast SSD-cached VPS lines.
My VPS just work every time, no downtime, no issues, no nothing. I have not opened one support ticket with them.
And the server is lightning fast, and their price is really good.
A highly recommended company.
I have one VPS with Ramnode.com.
SolaDrive.com 100+ days
I have some mixed feelings about SolaDrive.com. I have had some downtime several times, almost alway from DDoS attack on the node. Their support staff has an attitude and thats not very helpful.
SolaDrive.com is the company I have used most of my time on about all my servers. And I do not like to use lots of time on a hosting company. I have given them several changes, and still uses them. But if I get some more time consuming issues with them, they are out.
They do offer good prices, good hardware, fully managed servers etc. But it do not help when there is lots of issues and with a support team that do not know their work.
So not very recommended just now.
I have one VPS with SolaDrive.com
GetKVM.com 100+ days
GetKVM is yet a hosting company that just work. They are not really big, have a couple of servers, but still, everything works great, no need for support, no need for nothing. Just pay my bill, and forget about the server.
Not more to say about them. I’m happy with their services.
I have one VPS server with GetKVM.com
GridVirt.com 100+ days
GridVirt.com has a really good cloud KVM setup, with insane IO speeds. And after they changed DC they cut the price in half. So you really get good value for your money.
And the server just work, no downtime on the new DC, no issues at all.
The server is really fast, and I almost forget that the server is located in the US and not Europe. Can’t ask for any better host.
I have one VPS with GridVirt.com.
