That being said, here is my breakdown of each of the categories mentioned above;
Although SSDNodes offers incredible prices, I have observed that the products do not meet the advertised performance claims due to the resource allocation methods used.
I am mainly satisfied with the SSDNodes services, although I wish that they offer better end user control for aspects such as; rDNS, IPv4 addresses, host name, backups, etc.
This all adds up when configuring and / or managing VPS containers – which results in the handling of tickets and additional time and resources.
On top of that, and in the same vein, I also found that managing things financially was tedious and confusing compared to other large VPS providers such as Digital Ocean or Vultr, because terminating and creating VPS containers requires opening tickets and where support responses after credits have been confusing and, in some cases, frustrating in a circular fashion.
This is closely related to the previous metric, although my personal experience with support has been the most positive, although I point out that I have not used SSDNodes for any live hosting, and that did not bother me. no waiting between ticket comments – however, and as I consider the lack of a ticket severity option to be a major negative aspect of web hosting, I chose to Offer a support note, based on live web hosting – and where a lack of ticket severity and slow response times are not conducive to a configuration of live web hosting .
Unfortunately for SSDNodes, I have not been able to give them a password (on my own terms of course) on the performance index.
And even though I wouldn't say that VPS services are the worst on the market, I would, however, strongly criticize their use of performance claims that leave customers as if they were cheated.
That said, my biggest performance issue is on an 8-core VPS server, with total combined processor performance, lower than that of a single-core VPS processor.
Likewise, and on the I / O side, a similar model was found, as an NVMe drive turned out to be much slower than a physical hard drive.
And finally, where memory (32 GB) has proven to be slower than any other server, and where allocated resource methods would not allow improvements in caching.
I would also add that these performance results came from three different VPS containers, in three different locations, in order to avoid false positives.
And although the sample size is relatively small, compared to competing services, this was mainly due to the limited VPS management structure of the end user.
Therefore and with all that being said, my conclusion that if SSDNodes was not a bad experience in itself, since I was able to use their services for personal development and testing, I would not however choose SSDNodes rather than competing services such as Digital Ocean or Vultr for live hosting, based on end user management services, as performance.
– I hope this helps you
