"For a long time we've believed that the web hosting industry hasn't had enough transparency around performance & uptime. Our aim is to provide a transparent platform that gives you the data you need to make the right decisions when choosing a web host. What We Do We've built a method for running UnixBench server benchmarks in the cloud, currently this is only available for Linux based servers. Every benchmark has a unique key that when completed syncs securely with our server & passes the benchmark data back. We use the hostname to check if the server being benchmarked matches up with the host it's attached to, we also look at some other metrics like hard drive space, RAM & the CPU's to make sure the plan matches up. Once the benchmark is complete we'll send you a report that shows your current plan in comparison to similar plans. For example if you're on a VPS we might show you similar VPS plans with better performance & some lower tier dedicated servers. The benchmark then gets assigned to that host giving us richer data for the next time we run a report. We also have a benchmarks section which groups the data by server type, so you can see the current top performing dedicated servers or cloud providers. Running the benchmarking script on your server is a completely secure process, we understand that some people may not feel comfortable running a foreign script on their server. Our aim is to be transparent so you can view the code we're executing on GitHub." #reviews #reviews_site #comparisons #hosting #benchmarks #vps #dedicated_servers #bootstrap_layout #ideas #affiliate_marketing #copy #steal #rankings #@next_web_iterations #coupons #affiliate_driven #pub
"I’ve been a Linode fan and customer for years, but just this week I was made aware of a competing VPS host – DigitalOcean. It’s a pretty compelling sell. A VPS for $5 a month, with a 20GB SSD and 512MB of RAM. Fucking, sweet. But when something sounds this good, I’m sceptical. To dispell or validate my thoughts of a “catch”, I turn to a handy performance analysis tool – Phoronix Benchmark Suite. Here’s the skinny." "The Setup Linode at $20/month :: 4 Cores running at 2.13GHz, 512MB RAM, 24GB disk, Vanilla Ubuntu 12.04 x64 with ext3 filesystem. Xen. DigitalOcean at $5/month :: 1 Core running at 2.0GHz, 512MB RAM, 20GB SSD, Vanilla Ubuntu Server 12.04 x 64 with ext4 filesystem. KVM." "The Conclusion Linode has four cores which results in predictably greater CPU performance. DigitalOcean has SSD disks which results in predictably greater I/O performance. But DigitalOcean is 75% cheaper. That's a shit load the last time I checked. Even if you are transcoding video, you could just get a more powerful DigitalOcean server or more of them. From a strictly performance-per-dollar perspective, DigitalOcean has Linode spanked." #web_hosting #benchmarks #comparisons #blogs #posts #references #vps #dedicated_servers #pub
"The Cryto VPS list is basically a comparison table for VPS providers, giving an overview of VPS plan specifications, prices, and properties like IPv4/IPv6 connectivity or allowing IRC. It allows filtering by specifications as well as a text search, and users (or VPS providers) can submit additional information themselves." "*Currently implemented* Table with specifications Range filtering Guaranteed RAM Burstable RAM Disk space Bandwidth Traffic CPU cores Free backup space Price Showing additional information for VPS plans IPv4/IPv6 connectivity IRC allowed Shared/Dedicated CPU cores Overage billing (automated billing for using more traffic than allocated, as opposed to temporary suspension/nullrouting) Free DNS hosting offered Virtualization platform Text search No referral links or ads :) 1st submission page (rough around edges):" "*Coming soon* Proper user submission of providers and plans, plus corrections on existing entries Sorting Display of more information Server locations Accepted payment methods Automatic RDNS (hidden by default) Filtering by additional information IRC allowed IPv4/IPv6 connectivity Overage billing Free DNS Shared/Dedicated CPU cores Virtualization platform Payment methods Server locations Automatic RDNS" "*Long(er) term to-do list* More info about providers Ratings Discount codes Multiple currencies Display of prices for billing intervals" "projects/vpslist.txt · Last modified: 2012/04/13 12:30 by joepie91" #vps #comparisons #web_hosting #lists #breakdowns #data #linkbait #simple #copy #data_driven #web_tools #pub
