The only thing that stops me from paying more than $5 monthly is pricing madness. What sane marketing do: more dollars you pay = more value you get per dollar. DO marketing do this: more dollars you pay = we care less. Really, wtf is this madness is all about?

Why the hell I can buy 160GB SSD + 8 Cores + 8TB Transfer + 4GB RAM for $40 (8 times $5) but if I want to buy it all as single thing Ill get only half of SSD and Transfer and quarter of cores? This whole thing just screams at me: “you should never buy any VPS except $5 one, they all just progressively megasuperantiadvantageous!”

Where in da bloody hell is advantage of paying higher price? Which mushrooms do your marketing managers smoke?

Andrew, you are right… sorry. I was going to stop at the 1st paragraph. The rest was just feeding the troll. I shall refrain in the future O:)

I for one, am quite happy with the way things are at DO, and I am probably not the only happy customer here. Simple pricing, good performance, instant and competent support. I am somewhat impressed by the tolerant reply to your first post by DO.

I would rather ask, what mushrooms you have been smoking to come up with a rant like this. Perhaps you should consider valium or a laxative instead. Then rather than post this link you are on about, click it yourself and go away to get your ‘sanity’ marketing.

Um digital oceans prices are lower than other hosting companies out there
