The moment we’ve been waiting for is finally here, the results of the Top Providers Q3 2013 poll! I would like to thank everybody for voting! Without you guys this poll wouldn’t even exist! Thank you!
Now, on to the results and the congratulations. The winner is: RamNode! Nick and team, congratulations on winning the second provider poll in a row! You guys have a solid business that is liked and appreciated by our community, which makes you the rightful winners of this poll! Second: Prometeus! Salvatore and team, you guys always manage to amaze the community with great services and pricing, even with iwStack! Keep it up and maybe you’ll take Nick of that first place some day ;-). Third: INIZ! Patrick, well done and congratulations! INIZ has been building on the path to the first place for a couple of months now. Right now they’re third, but who knows what the future may bring. Keep it up guys!
|First: RamNode||Second: Prometeus||Third: INIZ|
Coming first, for the second time in a row, is RamNode with 150 points! RamNode has once more gained popularity in the last quarter, which is all the better for them and for us! Congratulations guys!
The coupon code also applies to all other plans!
In second place, with 126 Points, is Prometeus! Prometeus has won three polls in the past and are still going strong, now looking at expanding outside Italy with their offerings an eventually iwStack!
The coupon code also applies to the 512MB Xen package!
Last but not least, in third place with 60 points, is INIZ! A first-timer in the top 3, but not an unknown provider for us LowEnders. INIZ worked hard to gain popularity and has done well!
RamNode started providing OpenVZ and KVM services from Atlanta, GA, USA in 2012 and have been known for their speedy SSD or SSD-cached servers. Early 2013, they expanded to Seattle, WA, USA and a bit later to Amsterdam, The Netherlands! Nick is known to hang around at LowEndTalk from time to time and always manages to impress us with his nice discounts, as is again the case with the offer above! Meanwhile, being an established provider, you simply can’t go wrong with RamNode, so make sure to grab a box from the offer above!
Prometeus: is there anything these guys can’t do? They offer regular OpenVZ, Xen and KVM boxes (Prometeus), LowEnd OpenVZ, Xen and KVM boxes (Iperweb), OVerZold OpenVZ boxes and now also High Availability per-by-the-hour KVM machines with iwStack! And I didn’t even mention their storage offers! Salvatore is now looking at expanding to the US, where he would eventually like to deploy iwStack. Right now, it’s OpenVZ and Xen there. With the real Italian quality Prometeus has always been able to provide now being available in the US, you would be crazy not to give this a shot!
Like I said before, this is the first time for INIZ in the top 3, so once again: hats off to them! INIZ started as StormVZ with regular and High RAM VPS offerings, but later centered their offerings around regular OpenVZ VPS, SSD OpenVZ VPS and KVM VPS. INIZ is also a global player in this market, with servers being available in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, New York City (!), NY, USA and Los Angeles, CA, USA! Patrick made us a nice special above, so if you need a box with a load of RAM and plenty of disk space, get one from INIZ!
The number four and five for this poll are: BuyVM (4th) and Digital Ocean (5th), congratulations to them as well!
Thank you all once again for voting and being part of this amazing community! The full list will be posted within one to two weeks.
