I Second Marco Arment’s Linode Recommendation

In his piece on Media Temple being bought by GoDaddy, Marco makes some recommendations about where to host your website. I agree with this recommendation:

For VPSes, I use and recommend Linode. They’ve been remarkably consistent over the last couple of years, and their control panel is excellent. I ran some test servers on the cheaper, SSD-equipped DigitalOcean over the last few months, but found them to be inconsistent and immature. I think they’re having trouble keeping up with their growth.

I have been using Lindoe1 for a couple of years to host all of my websites, and I really, really like it.
