Seeking new host

It's the time again when all my contracts are up and I re-evolute everything & seek possible alternatives. Below are the current (and some past) host in which I have used (and deem acceptable).

* Current approved list

Iceland = http://www.thordc.com
Sweden = http://www.bahnhof.net
Germany = http://www.server4you.net
Sweden = http://www.prq.se
Sweden = http://www.glesys.se
Sweden = http://www.swedehost.net
Netherlands = http://www.leaseweb.com
Malaysia = http://www.shinjiru.com
Netherlands = http://www.transip.eu

**Exploratory list

United Kingdom = http://www.simplexwebs.com
United States = https://my.hawkhost.com/aff.php?aff=1096
United States = http://www.chicagovps.net

*I've used them, tested them, and would recommend them.

** I'm exploring their services now and will report back at a later time


^ So can anyone recommend any good alternative VPS providers?

I define Good as a provider who is fast, secure, stable, accepts adult content, and their VPS plan doesn't equal the same price as a low end dedicated server.

Requirements are:

5 GB disk space
2 GB ram
Debian or Ubuntu
DirectAdmin is optional

Never heard of any of the above, except chicagovps.net has a bad rep, just search for them on http://www.lowendtalk.com/ forums ;)

check webhostingtalk.com for VPS offers

if you look for unmanaged VPS then check out the following via google search for

site:www.lowendtalk.com/ top provider 2012

they hold quarterly end user polls to determine best VPS (low end mainly unmanaged) for each quarter

summarised at http://www.lowendtalk.com/wiki/top-providers

only tried ramnode.com and buyvm.net to date but hostigation.com has a good rep too

Hello Adam,

interesting lists. I can advice SimplexWebs, nice hosting and performance, with Litespeed + SSD. Medialayer it top notch, eAccellerator + Percona MySQL + LiteSpeed (DC in USA and EU).

You're the 3rd person to recommend them (I posted this in a few places, not just here).

I've been told by their pre-sales though that they don't exactly "want" adult content (although last I checked their TOS supports it). That kind of gives a mix message. Have you hosting any such content and has there been any issues?

If a cloud service is what you're looking for, I, too, would recommend Digital Ocean. I emailed them recently about someone using their service to do nefarious things and their actions were very timely. It was rather refreshing to see, considering some cloud service providers don't care what happens on their network as long as they get paid.
