I decided to split this to a separate topic, as web hosting is a rapidly evolving business and always an interesting topic.
Regarding Scaleway’s IPv6, some of their offers do have it, but not all. Couple of things need to be pointed out:
- ScaleWay uses ARM or Intel Atom cores. They say their servers are custom built cigar pack sized boxes, which makes them energy and physical volume efficient. Thus they are cheap. But Atoms are way slower than Xeons and the cores, to my knowledge, are not hyper threading.
- ScaleWay is new and there are some rough edges, but they are a subsidiary of Online.net, which gives them credibility.
What kind of payload do you have?
I love Digital Ocean for their simple dashboard, extremely high reliablity and customer service. Their low end offerings are great, in the 5-10$ range, but they get pricey if you scale up. Highly recommended, if one seeks trouble free hosting.
But if heavy lifting is needed, then OVH gives a lot of bang for the buck. They are cheap and use top of the line Xeon cores. So if you need strong single core performance, they are worth a look. I switched to ScaleWay due to the large SSD, as this forum platform generates a rather huge database.
