To those who are new to this community, RamNode is one of the popular host at LowEndBox and LowEndTalk. We have featured them numerous times before and they have built a very good following. They came first in the last couple of Quarterly Top Provider Polls and customer reviews are generally positive. I highly recommend their service as I am also a current customer. Feedbacks are always welcome at the comments section below.

    You should remove your corporate title from WHT and spend it on something else worth wild Nick. Waste of money. Plus, it’s disrespectful to your current customers.

  7. I got their 128MB CVZ at $15/year a few months ago and it has been a great experience. It’s amazing how much can be done on such a little server, and it’s doing it all even faster than my old shared web hosting!

    My only complaint would be that the provided DNS isn’t really suitable for doing anything fancy, so I’ve stuck with my registrar’s DNS for the time being.

    June 18, 2015 @ 7:35 pm | Reply
    • Thanks for your kind words! We may look at replacing the DNS system (which is just cPanel for now) at some point next year.

      June 19, 2015 @ 2:40 pm | Reply
      • Good to hear. My recommendation on that front would be to go with something that doesn’t treat subdomains as a rare and precious thing. And something that handles geolocation would also have me buying more servers from you. :-)

      • gags:

        A very sincere recommendation from me too… Just provide a good Geo-redundant DNS system and it will make you a complete great provider. No wise tech would host critical DNS on their Production VPS, it should be hosted elsewhere for a failsafe setup… I hope you will consider this! Good luck — keep up !

        I’ve got VPS immediately after payment. Server runs very fast, I wonder what optimizations are processed on the node, because all things like IO, CPU, network work like on dedicated server, not shared. I have chose the NL location, I like the pings. Long live RamNode. Thanks Nick! :)))

  9. Much props to their customer response. I purchased a VPS, added cPanel, and asked about setting a PTR record – got a response in 7 MINUTES! We are now testing options to migrate about 150 domains, which won’t be fun as 100 of them aren’t on cPanel currently. Very happy so far (that kid in a candy store feeling)

    Do I recommend RamNode? Yes
    Performance is great.
    Uptime is great(Only VPS downtime is when I took it down myself).
    Support is great.
    Can’t go wrong with a VPS from RamNode to be honest.

    I decided to go with the $13.50/year offer because I needed a small vps with a little storage to use as a simple backup server and I love it so far! Ramnode’s owner has the same first name as me so obviously their services rock ;).

    Support USED to be good
    2+ hour ticket now, no response. Meanwhile, they’ve shut the server down for supposed “CPU abuse”, telling me to fix it, but refusing to respond.

    Yeah, this is NOT professional what so ever

    June 23, 2015 @ 4:12 pm | Reply
    • Hi Tom, your ticket was not “2+” hours without a response, although the time before the second reply from our staff member was perhaps longer than normal due to a high ticket load this morning. The original message from the on duty tech included a screenshot of the CPU load in question. It was high and disruptive enough that he needed to take action. We’re happy to continue to work with you via ticket, but it’s simply not true that anyone “refused to respond” to you. I think you’ve been with us long enough to know that we’re here to help. We appreciate your business.

    Ramnode has been amazing the past few months. I have used my vps to host everything from wordpress to a VPN. Recently I have been running out of ideas to use my vps for, but that hasn’t stopped me from running my owncloud server. With owncloud I can have my own secure “dropbox” for files. Recently my server got hacked about 3 hours after I had made a dumb security mistake. I got notified that my server had started sending out Dos attacks. I contacted support and they said they would reinstall my server for me. I don’t know of any other host that would do that. I have used the OVH classic server, and they suspended it for high CPU. I have never had this issue with ramnode.

    I’ve had a VPS in the US for many months now and everything is great. Low price for the specs, great performance, no downtime so far, fast and good support. They’re the best VPS provider I have had.

    The only downside is that they don’t offer VPS in the UK and I can’t find a UK hoster with comparable prices that is even nearly as good as Ramnode. :)

    Highly recommended.

  25. Ramnode’s service is fantastic. I recently renewed for a 2nd time a 128meg CVZ in the Netherlands I use as a VPN & opened a low priority ticket to apply the promo code – it was applied in 6 minutes. The only downtime in 2 years was advised in advance: 30 minutes to replace a RAID card & a 10 minute loss of networking the previous year for a networking upgrade.

    Hello, be careful, although it’s on all AUP they have just enforce a policy that block any attempt of using torrent protocol, it was legal or illegal.
    This means I can’t download an ISO linux image any more…

    We have 2 VDS servers, 3 VPS servers, and a shared reseller account as well. Customer service is still top notch, and we couldn’t be happier.

    Well, we could, if they had a Canadian data centre too – we’re stuck with the other guys until then :)
