Essential Information

When adding an entry below please specify:

  • Plan name
    • the cost per hour or per month
    • RAM
    • Hard drive space, partition type (ext3, ext4, jfs, etc...)
    • CPUs/cores
    • bandwidth per month
    • operating system options
    • Free trial options

Hosting Providers

  • gandi.net - $5 a month for a small instance, 30gb traffic
    • GANDI also provides VPS with unmetered 10Mbps link and I can vouch that using at least 2/3 of this 24/7 gets no complaints. Billing is a big pain in the ass though, there's no way to auto-bill so you have to remember to fill your prepaid account. Troofmaster 14:57, 24 March 2013 (EDT)
  • Amazon EC2 - pricing
  • BandwagonHost - Avoid like the plague. Host seems to consider sales more important than user safety; response to inquiry about lack of SSL in the customer panel was "Very few people actually care about it. We did all kinds of experiments on our websites throughout the years, and SSL is one of those things that does not actually impact the number of new orders received." (source).

Joyent

I've had good experiences running high-traffic, low-CPU jobs at Joyent due to the incredible 20TB/mo included (with a single account, last I checked, not per-instance). Troofmaster 14:57, 24 March 2013 (EDT) (Note Joyent has changed the free bandwidth quote.)

Been running an extra small instance for a few weeks. No uptime or connectivity issues. A decent service but the problems listed below make this a second not a first choice. omf_ 0:44, 27 March 2013 (EDT)

  • Extra small Linux instance
    • $0.03 per hour
    • 512 MB RAM
    • /dev/vda1 9 GB ext4 partition, minus 750mb for the operating system
    • /dev/vdb1 15 GB ext4 partition. mounted as /data/
    • 1 cpu
  • Small Linux instance
    • $0.085 per hour
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 30 GB storage
    • 1 cpu
  • free bandwidth per month: All in, 1 TB out
  • Debian 6.x and Centos

Problems

  • No support for installing custom Linux distributions. Meaning you have to install everything you need every single time since you always start off with one of their fresh installs.
  • Cannot find a way to add more hard disk and RAM to a running instance.
  • The wiki is currently down :(
  • Some scripts on there site are just broken links :(
  • No way to view your current account balance or hours usage.

linode

    • $19.95 per month
    • 1 GB RAM
    • 24 GB storage
    • 2 TB per month
  • Linode 2G
  • Linux
    • $39.95 per month
    • 2 GB RAM

BuyVM (VPS)

  • OpenVZ plan
    • $15/year
    • 128 MB RAM (burst to 256 MB)
    • 15 GB storage
    • 1 CPU
    • 500 GB per month bandwidth
  • CentOS/Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu
  • OpenVZ means you can't change the kernel
  • Burstable RAM is available as long as there is capacity on the host node, which seems to be almost all the time
  • Additional IP v4 addresses $1/month, but they probably won't let you cycle them to avoid bans
  • Additional bandwidth $2.50/month for 1TB extra with no maximum
  • Larger plans also available with similar pricing
  • Plans often go out of stock, especially the smaller ones
  • IRC support and information about stock in #Frantech on irc.dairc.net
