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.
