Most reliable hosting sites – September 2009

netcraft logoNetcraft‘s monthly reliability monitoring showed a bit of a mixed picture in September. Linux took the number 1 place. ┬áIN the top10 FreeBSD took places 3, 7 and 10.

DataPipe (who use FreeBSD) was one of the most reliable hosting company sites in August, and only narrowly missed out on the same achievement in September. DataPipe has shown some good results over the past six months, notching up five top-ten appearances, including three first places.

All the details here.

New jail based FreeBSD hosting: BSD Cell

In “FreeBSD Land” we have Jails, Wardens, Inmates, but now there’s also a Cell, BSD Cell.

BSD Cell provide Freebsd jails/vps which are hosted at gigeservers behind state of the art ddos protection. IRC is allowed, and reverse dns can be done by a support ticket.

Currently two plans are available: Jail 01 and Jail 02.

The website looks quite bare at the moment, without telephone contact numbers or address details. Hopefully the site will be made to look more professional to attract buyers….

It’s interesting to notice increased hosting on FreeBSD: RootBSD (XEN VPS), BSD VM (Jail VPS) and now BSD Cell
