Another quarter, another top providers poll! I’m delighted to be able to finally announce the three best providers for this quarter. The final full list of results will be posted on here and on LowEndTalk over the course of the next few days. I just need to ratify a few providers scores and thought I’d get this post submitted first. In this quarters poll 105 different hosts were selected by 252 members of our LowEndTalk community. Once again, thank you to everyone who has taken part and congratulations to the below three:
|First: Prometeus||Second: RamNode||Third: BuyVM|
| In first place, for the third time in a row, with 235 Points, is Prometeus! Salvatore has sent in one more KVM special to celebrate. From now on, their KVM servers will be using the SAN Hitachi HUS 150.
|| In second place, with 180 points, is Ramnode! RamNode have managed to gain the second spot after coming third in our last poll. Nick has sent in this special offer as a way to say thanks.
|| Last but not least, in third place with 154 points, is BuyVM! BuyVM have featured in all of our top providers polls. If you scroll down, you can see a picture of the new stallion!
Prometeus have now won the last three Top Providers polls and came within the top three for the last four polls. Prometeus were founded in 1997 and also operate under the OVerZold and IperWeb brands. OVerZold recently offered a 5GB OpenVZ vps for $7/month. Prometeus are still very active within the community and like to pull the odd prank :-) What customers are saying: Erawan “Great and friendly support, nice server/network/uptime.”, rds100 “Salvatore must be doing a lot of things right to be so successful. And my VPS with them is the most stable i have.” and finally, my favourite, from Eastonch “Salvatore is a magician.”.
RamNode have now featured in our last two Top Providers polls. RamNode offer both OpenVZ and KVM servers in Atlanta, GA. Their SSD and SSD-Cached VPSs certainly seem to get some of the best results when it comes to hardware benchmarking. They’re currently preparing to launch a second location. What customers are saying: texteditor “Great service, great ticket response time, great price, fast hardware, fast network (also lowest latency to my location in IN/KY region)” and Roph says “Just can’t complain… it’s not let me down. Also, dat disk i/o.”.
BuyVM have came in the top three of all our polls to date. A lot has happened in this year already for BuyVM. Francisco has sent a picture of the next version of Stallion for you guys to look at! What customers are saying: jaypeesmith says “Despite some recent bumps with network issues, I still have a great amount of trust in BuyVM. The storage VPS option is an incredible bargain… I spend a lot less to get a lot more with BuyVM.”.
Thank you everyone once again! In case you’re wondering, Hostigation came fourth with 91 points and trailing close behind in fifth is EDIS with 81 Points. I’ll try and get the full table released as quickly as possible!
