Great Service
John Howard,

Digital Ocean is a highly customisable cloud hosting service with reasonable rates. The only drawback for non-technical customers is you will need to configure your server VIA the command-line – the good thing is Digital Ocea... More n has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things. Less

Bad reputation and blocked on many providers

Took out hosting with this company as recommended by developers from India. Any emails generated by the server are either blocked or end up in spam with international email providers. Tried this with Microsoft exchange acc... More ounts and btinternet. User registration emails are blocked. Tried for several weeks to resolve, seems to be OK if you are in India but UK providers block or treat all emails as spam. Paid for hosting, not likely to get my money back. Now changed to Go daddy and hoping that will be better. Less

Winner: Linode

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

We choose Linode as the winner in this comparison because they have a strong commitment to offering high quality hosting, and keeping up with the latest technologies. Digital Ocean has an overall good reputation, but they really can’t compete with the focus on high quality hardware, and great customer service that Linode is known for. Linode is also significantly less expensive than Digital Ocean, which is just one more reason why Linode is the winner of this comparison.
