Let us source the best parts for you at the lowest prices, order and ship everything to our location, and build it for you! All for actual parts cost + 10%. We'd also be happy to help you figure out what parts would be best for your needs. Just ask us at sales [at] and we'd be happy to consult with you to figure out the best solution for you.

Why Choose I/O Flood?

  • I/O Flood is run by real systems administrators. We love servers, and we love bandwidth. As such, our servers are intended for serious, high usage customers. Let our experts help you pick the best package for you and optimize your server for maximum performance.

  • Managed service available. We all get stumped and need some help from time to time. Our managed services are simple: ask us for help, we'll help you. The catch? We're sysadmins, not programmers, so we won't reprogram your buggy php scripts for you. We will optimize your server for you or other wise "fix stuff", or migrate your sites, or "whatever". Just ask. We don't bite.

  • What if you don't like our service? Then we don't expect you to pay us. We'll give you a refund, and you can find a new hosting provider, no hard feelings.

  • No resellers, no middlemen, no nonsense. We own all of our own hardware and run our own network, so you have one point of contact for any questions or concerns.

  • Have you ever been confused about what cpu is best, or whether you should go with software or hardware raid, or really what is the big deal with SSDs? Ask us! We love figuring out the best hardware, software, and system configuration to most efficiently and effectively host a given website.

What are customers like you saying about I/O FLOOD?

Our feedback speaks for itself:

A big +1 for I moved from dedicated to a custom VPS plan, and the performance of my sites actually increased. Gabe advertises semi-managed, but he is relentless in customer service & hand holding if needed. My initial email contact with him spanned over 80 messages back & forth. On top of it all, I don't think the guy sleeps. Email/ticket responses are fast no matter what time of the day. Hope this helps.

To my surprise this vps handles everything i throw at it, im running apache, with php, teamspeak and iodine. At peak times it handles 350+ httpd processes, 80+ php fcgid processes, and all this below 2.0 load.
This is the best uptime that i've had this far, with a big list of providers that i have tried before. The vps had to be rebooted due to the change of bandwidth allowed, but i had 30 days with uptime.
Normally i put a rating from 1 to 10, but i will give this guys an overall 10.

Support is where ioflood really shines. Iíve initiated three or four tickets. Every ticket was answered and resolved within minutes. I had one ticket because of a fatal error of memory size on wordpress sites. Gabe offered to fix it himself or guide me through the process. I elected to do it myself based on his troubleshooting of the issue. His instructions were great, and the problem was quickly solved. It is such a relief to have capable professionals taking care of my sites.
