Since approximately 2010, I use TransIP. I really like them, but in August 2023, someone attended me to Hetzner, and the difference in price is considerable + their offer is wider. Maybe time for a comparison?
- EU-based, so no US- or GB-based company
- Focused on high-level hosting. No entry-level hosting company
- Preferably based in The Netherlands, Germany, Poland, Scandinavia or Finland
- Preferably not based in France or Hungary.
|Akamai (Linode)||US company - Skip|
|Cloudways||Appearantly, they have been bought by Digital Ocean, which is US-based ⇒ Skip|
|Google Cloud Platform||
|HostGator||US-based + entry-level focus ⇒ Skip|
Seems a fine hosting provider, but slightly at the lower side of the market: Mostly focused on shared hosting and WordPress hosting; No dedicated servers; Cloud servers are from Google and not their own:
|IBM||Just joking - I would never do business with such an old and very tired company. Do they still breath?|
|Microsoft||I'm not sure if they are actually a hosting provider, but I don't want to do business with them anyway, eventhough they might not be the nasty company anymore that they used to be - I remember last century still too well|
|1&1 Ionos||They meet the specs|
