When I started with Discourse, I’ve been recommended to use DigitalOcean as hosting provided, which is what I’m using now. However, recently I heard about Linode, which seems to be very a very similar service. So checking around, I noticed that Linode offers more RAM than DigitalOcean for the same price. Though support is limited, you can actually contact the company through phone. If required they even have support packages that you can purchase.
Is there any reason why Discourse usually prefers DigitalOcean? Is there anything bad about Linode?
