Talk about your experience with a couple of hosts.
Doesn't have to be a Revenact host.

Can be a negative experience or a positive experience.​

Honestly, had some good experience at first with Shockbyte which is expensive for what they provide, including their terrible support responses which made my experience get horribly bad with them.
Sparked Host LLC, is there anything negative to talk about? I mean I like Paul & he's really a great person, and no one can change my mind.
Vitale, not much negativity except I can't blame them that much for what happen.
Versatilenode, great hosting company for VPS as I didn't try their Webhosting, however overall, great & better then perfect, ngl.
FadeNode, too much downtime, usage of high performance while unable to keep their servers up, sorry Riisee but that's the truth man.

Want more?

MC Hosting
Skynode - Support is slow, but hosting is great.
CloudEx - Exit Scam
PebbleHost - Only used it as a sub-user, Had no issues while using.
FroHost - Only used the free servers a while ago, but it worked great.

VPS Hosting
SkySilk - Only used it in beta, Pricing is a bit high but its a premium service.
FroHost - Great Pricing, Works creat
VersatileNode - Merged from FroHost, No issues and I'm keeping the same price.
Contabo - Unpopular opinion: I honestly haven't had any issues network wise. The ddos prot may be trash but I don't use it for anything large scale and mainly discord bots or small mc servers. Pricing is fine and works with my purposes.

Experiences (not in order)
  • SparkedHost - Minecraft Budget | You get what you pay for; is okay
  • HeavyNode | Minecraft Premium (i9-9900k) | Good; not much to say [Current]
  • TorchNode | Custom Order - Garry's Mod Premium | Good; Not much to say
  • MineRack/BuyVM | Minecraft (2013-ish), VPS (2016-present) | Great VPS; Decent Minecraft Server
  • PytoHost (2012?) | Defunct | Minecraft | First Minecraft server used with this provider. Great until they shut down
  • SimpleHost (2014?) | Defunct | Minecraft | Took their offer after they went down. Had some decent control panel, unfortunately, shut down
  • VitaleHosting | VPS | It's alright, given that there is a low-end CPU used for the VPS. Overall, no awful experiences.

Some of these hosts listed below have died and does not exist anymore.

For some of these hosts, I haven't purchased them but a friend did:

(mc) SparkedHosting - Cheap yet budget minecraft hosting is kind of slow and has some many limitations
(web) SuperiorHosting - Nice cpanel web hosting and pretty nice.
(Discord bots) Swipenode - nice but the client.ping was kind of high
(mc) Minehut - a lot of lag, sucks, limited requires bungeecore with the main minehut server

Summerhoaxs:
(mc) MCFreeHosting - The host actually used to be more than good. Free Minecraft servers that are really fast, until this whole drama thing happened with summerhoax, which I realized some more stuff about the host.
(mc) RapidHost - "ok" servers but it wasn't really good until they haven't gave the backups of the servers people made with hard effort (me)
(mc) VortexCloudHosting - (owned by ashley) when they still had free servers, somehow the server was faster than sparked's budget hosting but node was forced canceled or something (I wonder why)
(mc) Vatrix (aka blizzardnode) - it was pretty good I have to admit but then they made everything a paid option and soon removed every free servers

Talking on experience with hosts than I want to say that not with everyone but with some I have a great experience. because a customer feels happy and satisfied when the services provider gives responsive services and helpful features.
With serverwala datacenter, I don't have any worry about server and technical issues. because they design their services according to customers' requirements.

BlizzardNode isn't a summerhoax..? Also Vatrix/BlizzardNode never sold free mc hosting

MC Hosting

MCPROHOSTING - I was paying $30/m for 3gb ram and unmetered storage, however server ran smoothly. This was my first host I purchased from, and it was for a network that I was making (now dead). I had an issue with essentials, where I installed "ESSENTIALS ANTI BUILD" I didn't know this was installed, and when I was testing my server, I couldn't break blocks. For live chat I had to wait till 10pm (in my time zone) and they said it was an issue with essentials protect (which it wasn't). After 3 days, I made a ticket and another support representative identified the issue and resolved it. Overall, meh experience.

PebbleHost - Server was up 24/7, and performance was smooth. Support was great too. Not much to say, overall good experience.

VPS HOSTING

MCS HOSTING LTD - (At this time I was unaware about NickE's rep) The VPS was great but panel creds weren't given. The way I found about this is when another customer was complaining that their VPS wasn't working. The panel itself was also quite buggy. However, VPS performance was excellent, and when I offered free discord bot hosting, clients reported under 50 ping. Overall okay experience.

Contabo - Took 3 days to get my server activated as they wanted proof of identity. I sent them my card statement, which they took a day to reply and asked for more verification. I then had to send my ID card to get my VPS. When I did get it, performance was sluggish, likely because they're oversold. Overall bad experience.

TorchNode - his was when SecureSRV was acquired by TorchNode. They had plans in bringing SecureSRV's budget plan to TorchNode. So when I approached them to see when they'd bring SecureSRV's budget vps'es, they said they'd let me use their NA vps until Budget VPS'es came in stock. However, they screwed up my installation and I was now waiting for budget vps'es to come back in stock. When I got the vps tho, it was pretty good! The VPS'es performance was pretty good, but later I ended up switching to their NA vps plan. Overall okay experience

VersatileNode - Amazing support, no issues with the vps at all. Not much to say, overall great experience.

OVH - The VPS was good, haven't had to contact support but heard support was shit. Had to wait three days since I was a new customer so they needed to verify me. I also purchased my VPS on a Sunday so I had to wait an additional day. Overall okay experience.

How is this related to what OP is asking?
