SimpleNode Introduction

SimpleNode is a US hosting provider that specializes in unmanaged VPS and Game hosting solutions.

Services and Specializations

SimpleNode offers 3 OpenVZ server options, all of which include 2 CPU cores, HDD storage, 1 dedicated IP address, and can be customized with a choice of Linux operating system including Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, and Fedora. Plans vary based on RAM and storage allocations. An additional IP address can be added for a small fee, and additional operating system options are available through the user control panel after purchase.

SimpleNode offers 3 KVM VPS plans, all of which feature the SolusVM interface, RAID 10 hard disks, E3 processors, ECC RAM, and 1 dedicated IP address. KVM servers offer a huge selection of OS installations, including dozens of Linux distributions as well as Window OS. Plans vary based on the number of CPU cores, RAM, storage, and bandwidth, and each package can be customized with additional server resources and IP addresses.

For customers with higher performance requirements, SimpleNode also offers 4 SSD KVM server options. These offer similar features as their traditional KVM plans, but provide double the disk performance. While they include a smaller selection of operating systems, many of the most popular Linux distributions are still available, including Ubuntu, Debian, CentOS, and LinuxMint.

SimpleNode also offers 2 options for hosting dedicated Starbound game servers. Starbound servers are hosted on VPS, offer full control and root access, include 1 dedicated IP address, and support an unlimited number of players. Plans vary based on RAM and storage space.

Infrastructure

SimpleNode servers are hosted in Dallas, Texas. All datacenters include gigabit ports and zero downtime.

Support and Customer Service

Support is available via an online ticketing system. Support times are not provided; however, they do provide a current average response time on their support page.

Billing and Payment Policies

SimpleNode accepts payment via PayPal and bitcoin. Accounts are auto-renewed whenever possible; if no payment information is on file, an invoice will be sent prior to the renewal date. Late accounts will be suspended after 24 hours.

SimpleNode requires 30 days’ notice for cancellation requests.

What We Couldn’t Find

Some information was unavailable or could not be confirmed:

  • Little information is available about the company, where its headquarters are located, or the type of support services that are available to customers.
  • SimpleNode hosts their servers at 3rd party datacenters; however, there is no information available regarding which datacenters or the type of security features they provide. At the time of this writing, all available servers were in Dallas, Texas, but that may be subject to change.
  • No uptime guarantee is provided.
  • At the time of this writing, SimpleNode was developing CubeWorld game servers. The specific offerings for those was not yet available.

Conclusion

SimpleNode offers a variety of affordable VPS solutions, and plans are highly customizable to fit any project. On the other hand, very little specific information is available regarding the company, their datacenters, or what tools are available with each server, so prospective customers should contact SimpleNode directly with a list of requirements to ensure they can all be met prior to ordering.

All servers are unmanaged, so if you prefer to have complete control over your system, SimpleNode offers a good options. If you don’t have the knowledge or resources to manage a server yourself, you may need to find another host.
