Pimping Linode

I don’t like salesishness, so let’s be clear about two things:

  1. I’m trying to get this site to where it can support itself by referral juju

  2. I only recommend things I think are phenomenal

That being said, I host this site with Linode. It’s a full VPS, and it is by far the best host I’ve used. And I’ve used many [mediatemple, bluehost, dreamhost, slicehost, a dozen others].

Linode is wicked fast, they quickly support the latest kernels, they have excellent build and recovery mechanisms, great support (though I’ve only had to use the email a couple of times for builds), they have an iPhone app, and I’ve never once had an issue with downtime or performance.


If you’re in the market, take a serious look at Linode. The links to them in this post include a referral code that will help me out if you sign up using it, and it won’t cost you any extra.
