Best I've used
Robert Evinger,
10
I've been running a personal and business website for myself and wife for over 20 years. Tried a number of providers and switched to Linode about 3 years ago. Best price and stability than prior providers I've used.
I'm using... More a Nanode as all my sites are low volume. If you are comfortable with Linux administration its a good deal. Less

Misleading regarding traffic usage
Sergio M,

Users must be very careful regarding how overall traffic usage is prorated. I lost $68 as consequence of the confusing and misleading explanation regarding traffic usage and no warning at all after closing my account. A theft
They overcharged me
אביאור ביירון,
2.0
I asked to move to a cheaper plan and they kindly assisted to clone my site. I asked that they will delete the old me.
After several months I discovered that they ignored my request to delete the data from the old server and ... More that they overcharged me for several months!
I told them to return my money but they offered only a 50% refund!
STAY AWAY FROM THEM
