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,
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
