If all you need is a VPS, then Latvia-based NodeRack makes it super-easy to buy one with a wide choice of operating systems. However, if you want simpler shared hosting or a more advanced dedicated server, you'll have to look somewhere else.

Overview

NodeRack

Although NodeRack’s very simple English-language website doesn’t say when it was established, I can tell you that this Latvian VPS provider joined Twitter in 2010, so it’s at least this old.

Features and Ease of Use

NodeRack offers several VPS plans that allow you to choose your operating system from CentOS, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, or Slackware. With these VPS plans you also get:

  • 1 to 3 CPUs
  • 768 MB to 5.25 GB RAM
  • 15 GB HDD to 105 GB HDD disk space
  • Up to 1 Gbit/s internet connection speed worldwide

NodeRack commits to creating your VPS within five minutes. With just a few clicks, you can customize everything, and the root access via SSH gives you complete control of your server.

Although there is no uptime guarantee, NodeRack ensures optimal availability of its servers located in secure data centers with multiple failover internet connections and uninterruptible power supplies.

Pricing and Support

NodeRack’s starter VPS plans are competitively priced, but they soon become expensive. You can pay in euros by credit card (only from EU countries), PayPal, or bank transfer. Note that you won’t be refunded if you end your subscription early.

Current customers can use NodeRack’s task system for support, but pre-sales prospect customers should be able to contact the company via Skype, email, or an online contact form. I say “should” because I couldn’t hook up via Skype, and my contact form submission went unanswered.

For self-support, NodeRack has a Latvian-language blog and a simple set of frequently asked questions:
