Linode Vs Vultr Vs DigitalOcean
Linode Vs Vultr Vs DigitalOcean? Why And Which For Best WordPress Performance Ecommerce Hosting?
I spun up a couple server instance (the $10-12 2GB ones) on each, loaded it with the exact same baggage and tested the loading times of a 5MB page on each.
All are super fast. I think Digital Ocean felt the fastest (most instantaneous) on the frontend, which is what matters to users really. But by a slight advantage.
Vultr was the most stable – never having issues with loading times stretching. Linode went crazy on two occasions – loading the page at 17secs and 31 secs! DO max was 9.6 secs but only once. But 95%+ of cases all were very similar in performance.
Control panel: VULTR is the cleanest, Digital Ocean is the most cluttered, Linode is an interesting in-between – I like it. They’re also the most experienced – don’t forget.On Vultr you can’t downgrade a server, and you can’t see memory use in the dashboard (only CLI), if that matters to you.
Support – Vultr quickest to reply – but without “meat”. Linode responds after a while, but they take their time and do it thoroughly. DO never got to use.
I tested $10 servers from DO and Linode, and the $12 High Frequency ones from Vultr, in a variety of locations, and loaded it from a variety of locations and averaged.
