We offer top-tier features on top of an industry-best platform of Intel CPUs, SSDs, and highly available, redundant networks. Get more for way less.

Unloaded, unlike the competition

Other hosting companies sacrifice speed by cramming more people onto a single server. That's great for the bottom line, but it offers a terrible customer experience, where one bad apple can cause your site to slow to a crawl.

Instead, we're focused on providing an unloaded platform that prioritizes your experience over our profit. One customer said SSD Nodes enabled them to “run queries in 1/100th of the time” compared to AWS. Another said, “I compared SSD Nodes with Digital Ocean and a couple other VPSes, and it was obvious my node wasn't oversold.”

SSD Nodes: Your choice in platform

Your choice in platform

Most cloud providers force you into the platform of their choosing, whether or not that's actually the best choice for your needs. Instead, we've developed two parallel hosting platforms—KVM and OpenVZ—to put the power of choice back in your hands. Curious about the difference?

By giving you the power to choose, we hope to cover more applications, more needs, and help more people build and innovate online.

Zero-downtime upgrades

Sometimes, you don't plan for being featured on the front page of Tech Crunch or Hacker News. Our thin virtualization platform allows you to scale instantly—just make the change in your dashboard and you're off.

Other providers force you to contact support and set up a time to shut down your servers so that they can upgrade them. With SSD Nodes, you can stop planning for downtime and get back to building the next big thing.

The SSD Nodes guarantees

14-day refund

We stand behind all of our servers with a 14-day refund policy. If your new server won't work for you, for any reason at all, we'll process the refund and wish you the best in finding a host that fits all of your needs.

Most other hosts don't offer refunds at all, and those that do close the window after 24, 48, or 72 hours. We don't think that's enough time to truly know if a server is right for you, and we want customers who want to stay with us, not just because they are locked into a plan they don't want.

SSD Nodes credit

If, for whatever reason, you need to cancel your SSD Nodes account after the 14-day refund window, we're still here for you. We prorate what you paid for your server against the time that you've used it, and offer that as SSD Nodes credit that you can use for any of our services in the future.

Of course, we'll want to know why you want to cancel, and if there's any way we can help. But, by offering credit instead of simply terminating your services and taking the remaining balance for ourselves, we hope to still give you your money's worth, whether that's 6 months or 6 years from now.
