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
Great support

The team is always willing to help and very kind and nice. They help you even adding some code if necessary, for example in the .htaccess file.
It is a pleasure to work with them :)

Misleading regarding traffic usage
Sergio M,
2.0
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're extremely deceptive in their pricing

The whole "regular price" thing means that's how much they'll charge you once you renew. It doesn't say it explicitly, which is really shady. I wouldn't trust them at all passed that point.
