Threehosts.com compares the server hosting companies of Linode, Rackspace and Heroku.
Linode is an unmanaged server hosting service. This means clients are responsible for installing and updating all software on their server. Things like DNS configuration, control panel setup, SSL certificates creation, scripts and software installation, troubleshooting configuration issues, 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.
Heroku is suitable only for programmers who want to build applications. Their service lets app developers spend their time on their application code, not managing servers, deployment, ongoing operations, or scaling. If users are willing to sacrifice control over the application configuration and deployment, so that they can develop that much faster, then they would definitely love Heroku. They can completely forget about servers, run virtually anything on the platform and even scale up easily when they opt for Heroku.
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. account fee! From the other point of view, Rackspace's services are really overpriced compared with their competitor's.
