I want to purchase a VPS hosting for running the forum by xenForo. I'm a newbie for web server and have little time to manage the website. Which web server package is safe and smooth learning curving to manage?
I still use Linode, I still have 5 or more servers running with them.
But I already lost my trust with them, so I can't recommend them for now.
As much as no one can recommend them right now. Fact is I've seen entire data centers fall to their knees affecting thousands of clients not some moderate sized client like Linode. Internap took hits upwards of 100 Gbps to several data centers on a daily basis from some kid in Cali. There was nothing any hosting company using Internap could do about it. The majority of affected clients weren't even targets. Linodes problem seems like a minor annoyance in comparison. An expensive one for them and all their clients but when it comes down to it there is only so much they can do.
I find this comment absurd, to be honest.2-3 weeks.
They been hit since Christmas.
That can't be happen with Ramnode since they have DDOS protection on their own.
As am I, multiple disk corruptions on DO randomly throughout many droplets and support couldn't address it. Performance was slow with a slow network.I talking here about the speed and reliability of their server (SSD, CPU, Network).
Never mind about support thing.
DigitalOcean has way too slower CPU and SSD Speed.
