Terrible Service

Service used: Cloud - Linode 2GB
Seriously? I wasted my time setting up the server only to find out that Linode wouldn't provide me with a third Ipv4. Here is their answer:

This is the dumbest thing I've ever heard. You don't need 3 IPv4 addresses on a single host. And given that they can't get more allocations because IPv4 allocs are exhausted, yes, they need to approve your request, and rightly so. You're not their only customer. Pure selfishness on your part.

Bom... Cada um tem seus motivos e eu respeito, acima de tudo. Mas não posso concordar porque eu uso Linode; que por acaso é um dos melhores do mundo; no entanto, tenho um endereço de IP para cada site em meu VPS. E a justificativa...Read More

Expert Overview

Good Hosting for Coders and Developers

Linode is focused on providing good quality hosting to web developers, app developers and other tech professionals in this industry.  They only offer cloud hosting, but that is the ideal solution for this type of market.  They can host websites of any type as well as app hosting and things of that nature.

They have good quality hardware as well as great support when you need it, which is nice.  For most of their customers, the biggest perk is that the hosting company understands their needs as developers.

Uptime & Reliabilty

Very Reliable Hosting

The hardware and data center are set up to ensure their customers are getting the most uptime possible.  They do have an uptime guarantee of 99.9% but from what I have been able to find, they are much more reliable than that.  You'll likely never notice any downtime for your site or app hosting needs.

Features

Good Quality Features

This company has nice features including solid state drives, a super fast 40 GBPS network and much more.  They seem to make all their decisions based on what will help their specific client base the most.  You'll also get free data backup, which is very nice, and a number of APIs, StackScripts and more to help make the job of a developer easier.

Support

Very good support teams

This company will provide you with all the support you need to keep your site up and running smoothly at all times.  You'll have quick answers to questions when you have them, and if your site or hosting does run into trouble, they can help get it fixed right away.  The fact that they know all about developers helps make this process even better.

Pricing

Pay as you Need it

Unlike most hosting companies, you will have the option to just pay as you need it.  This is a common option for hosting companies that are focused on developers because most developers don't need the traditional 'always used' solution.  The prices start at $.015 per hour, or $10 per month.  They go up to $.12 per hour, or $80 per month.  In each case, you get a good amount of hardware and a nice service.

Summary

Excellent Hosting for Developers

This company makes it easy for you to decide if they are right for you or not.  If you're a developer, you should consider them carefully.  If you are just looking for traditional hosting, this is not the company for you.

Pros:

  • Very niche focused
  • Good prices
  • Very high quality hardware

Cons:

  • Not right for non-developers
  • Only offering cloud hosting
