host.sub! /Slicehost/, 'Linode'


If you’re reading this, then DNS has propagated and you’re viewing this site on its new home in Linode’s Newark data center. After 3+ years with Slicehost, I was convinced to sign up with Linode by the promise of getting double the memory allotment at the same price I was paying before, and some really promising competitive benchmarks between the services. So far, I’m liking what I’ve seen.

One minor gripe: The web management interface is much clunkier than Slicehost’s. It does offer more features, however.

If you’re interested in giving them a shot, it’s pretty painless. I managed to migrate 4 sites and a Rails app over to the new server in under 2 hours. Go sign up and give it a try.
