Hosting Providers

  • - $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
  • linode - $19.95 a month for a small plan, 2,000gb traffic


  • $0.007 per instance per hour
  • Unmetered BW
  • Supports launching new instances from an image
  • Coupon code "SSDTWEET" gives $11.15 account credit
  • Submit a support ticket to lift the standard 5 instance limit
  • API can launch instances


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)

  • Extra small Linux instance
    • $0.03 per hour
    • 512mb RAM

    • 1 cpu
  • Small Linux instance
    • $0.085 per hour
    • 1gb RAM
    • 30gb hard drive
    • 1 cpu

  • The wiki is currently down :(

  • $15/year OpenVZ plan (1 CPU, 128 MB RAM burst to 256, 15GB HD, 500GB/month BW)
  • Burstable RAM is availible as long as there is capacity on the host node, which seems to be almost all the time
  • CentOS/Debian/Fedora/Ubuntu
  • OpenVZ means you can't change the kernel
  • 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
