Does What It Says
Baruch Ben-David,
8.8
I was first attracted by the simple pricing scheme, and the fact that they let you pay per month. Setting up my account was simple. Starting my node was as easy as selecting a distribution to run. I also liked the fact tha... More t if I didn't find the node adequate, I could cancel within seven days and get a refund. In fact, if memory serves, they didn't deduct the fee until the seven days had elapsed (don't quote me on that; I could be wrong).
I had a question early on, and requested information. They got back to me within a short time, a matter of a few hours or so. They were courteous and effective.
I am well pleased with linode.com, and would definitely recommend it to my friends, if they needed a VPS.

Serious rubbish

Why would you use a host with such a limited administrative options? Who does it nowadays? Its like a little kids sandbox hosting, where if something goes wrong, you don't even have means of figuring out, what happened. Utter... More and total S - H - I - T.
And by the way. I would have given them 1 out of 10, but this side does not allow less than 2.
