Threehosts.com compares the server hosting providers of MediaTemple, Rackspace and DigitalOcean.
MediaTemple provides Developer and Managed VPS hosting packages. Developer hosting is for expert Linux users. It's designed to give clients total control of their Virtual Environment, which is why servers are provided with SSH only. Clients control and install all software.
DigitalOcean is an unmanaged server hosting service. This means clients will have to do the server system administration, server maintenance, and software configurations. Things like control panel setup, SSL certificates creation, troubleshooting configuration issues, installing scripts and software, setting up iptables firewall rules, upgrades, backups, etc. The hosting provider is only responsible for the physical server and the availability of the server, but does not provide any help in case any problems are faced with unmanaged accounts. Some webmasters have years of experience working with servers and have no problems with this, but non-technical customers are often in a different boat. Unmanaged server hosting solution is always low cost because of no cPanel and technical support.
Rackspace Cloud does not offer a popular control panel like Plesk or cPanel. This company provides a web-based management interface that users accustomed to cPanel and Plesk may feel a bit awkward when using it. Since the Rackspace Cloud is an un-managed service, clients are responsible for installing and maintaining all software on their server. Rackspace provides two support service levels: Core Service and Managed Service. At the Core Service level, support team will not assist in the installation of software or troubleshooting any kind of issue related to the software installed. Managed Service provides additional support, which includes monitoring, operating system and application infrastructure layer support, and technical guidance. To benefit from Managed Support Service, clients have to pay for what they use plus a $100/mo.
Server hosting solutions provided by Rackspace and MediaTemple are really overpriced compared with their competitor's. Some companies such as GoldPuma offer richer fully managed VPS hosing plans at affordable prices.
When choosing a VPS hosting provider, besides the reliability, ease of use, price and security, there are two other important criteria which must be considered — the level of customer services, and server speed.
GoldPuma is one of the leaders in providing Virtual Private Servers which has a reputation for their super high speed servers, and great support team. They offer a powerful, high speed hosting solution, providing both Windows and Linux operating systems, all backed by the best service and support in the industry, available LIVE 24/7. With their team of experts, users don't have to worry about setup — GoldPuma will get their server up and running fast if they are not even sure how to set it up. Users choose the plan that's right for them, and leave the rest to GoldPuma.
GoldPuma provides fully managed VPS hosting plans at affordable prices. With their VPS hosting, clients don’t need to handle it on some complex aspects such as installing operating system, upgrading, patching, and keeping the security and performance. Instead, GoldPuma takes all responsibility for their entire server. They also support for every problem or task, emergency or routine.
