About a decade ago, someone running a hosting company offered me a dedicated server at cost.
A few years later, some other company acquired them, and bumped my price up a bit.
Last night, that server went down, and despite 3 "no info" responses many hours later, I still have no clue what's going on.
Looking at alternatives, it seems like the (reasonably-priced) hosting world is stuck in 2012? Kinda surprised there's no real upgrades on the market...
@lukedashjr Hosting is the absolute worst
What about Rackspace? A little pricey for VPS and above but they have stability afaik
@lukedashjr Apologies for not sharing a direct link... would have helped the convo more to just add the links
@lukedashjr Still might not be what you are looking for... but I do have several client websites hosted with them and have had no real stability issues...
Support still isn't great but NO host has great customer service imo, just a bunch of Lv1 phone techs with no real ability to handle any issues...
Stay away from GoDaddy, Bluehost, LiquidWeb, or any of that stuff though!
@lukedashjr i have been pretty happy with my ovh / kimsufi bare-metal server. I also use Vultr for several VPS but the kimsufi machine is reasonably priced and i run a bitcoin node there (as well as two self-hosted at home)
