Top Provider Poll 2014-Q3 — The Results

Tags: Date/Time: October 28, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Maarten Kossen

Ladies and gentlemen: once again the moment has come! The votes have been counted and the results have been checked. The results for the Top Provider Poll 2014-Q3 are here!

First of all, let me thank you all for voting! This poll is not possible without our appreciated members who takes the time to vote and share their opinions about the providers they love. Just like the last three times, people had five votes to divide. They could give them all to one provider, divide them amongst providers, or give five providers one vote. This has proven to be a popular system for all members.

This is, however, the last poll as we know it now. It has commercialized into another ad spot for providers and that’s not what the poll is for. Changes are up ahead to make the poll more interesting and more refreshing. More about that in the final notes.

On to the results. By continued popular demand, I have listed the top 10 right here! I have picked offers for the top 3 providers from their website; numbers 4 to 10 are mentioned without an offer.

And the winner is…

MACH9Servers is still running strong and were originally called Hosthali, however they decided to re-brand to their current name. Prices are in Canadian dollars during the order process. Servers are located in Chicago with Continuum Data Centers. Live chat, phone, e-mail, and ticket support are all part of the deal, as are custom operating system installs and configurations. There are daily, automated backups to a SAN, over a separate NIC, included with these servers and they seem to have either burst RAM or vSwap. Reviews have been positive in the past, but we’re still looking to hear from you how they are performing now. Feel free to share your experiences in the comments!

Tags: , , , , , Date/Time: October 16, 2014 @ 1:00 pm, by Rashid Alkhaili

Atlantic.NetMarty, from Atlantic.Net, told us that they have recently added two new locations to their Cloud servers. These are Dallas, TX and Toronto, Canada. These Cloud servers are powered by SSD RAID protected drives, and you can be up in 30 seconds!

Atlantic.Net is a private S Corporation, which has been running for 20 years. They have been listed once before, and there were a mix of responses. If you tried them, or have any comments, please leave them below.

BlueVMJohnston, from BlueVM, has sent in these three offers for 66% off. These offers are exclusive to LowEndBox.com and all feature their own panel: Feathur.

Feathur is an Open Source (AGPL V3.0) control panel for OpenVZ and KVM and is available on GitHub. BlueVM Communications LLC are based in Honolulu and are dedicated to offering “low cost, high quality Virtual Private Servers (VPS)”. We have featured BlueVM quite some times since early 2012 and reviews have been mainly positive. After they had enough of SolusVM after numerous security incidents, BlueVM decided to write their own panel. Feathur is the result of that. It’s already in use at BlueVM (and has been for a while) but it is also available to the public and I believe other providers have started using it as well. Their hardware primarily consists of Intel E3-1240 servers (@ 3.4GHz) with 32 GB of RAM and 4 x 1TB or 2TB hard drives in RAID10. A review of their service (which includes Feathur screenshots & serverbear link) can be found here.
