Super stable, great pricing structure as well. Just recently they upgraded my $12 a month package from 1 Gbs to 2 GBs down and increased the SSD storage to 50 Gb. Wow, try and get that from the other guys. FYI, you do need to know ... Read More

Great if you know what you're doing.

Service used: Cloud - Linode 8GB
Been using Linode for quite a while now, and everything's perfect. They're always updating their plans and pricing, their documentation is detailed and helpful, they have various server locations to choose from...all good.

Amazing support

Service used: Cloud
Some of the most responsive and helpful support team I've ever worked with. I'm very new to this and they helped me immensely. It's rare I ever feel obligated to leave reviews for companies but they earned it.

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

Compare
9.5

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

Compare
9.5

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

Compare
8.5

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
