    I am currently looking for a new host for my websites.
    So far, I am using SynServer, located in Germany.

    Having a root server there and never had any complaints about them, but - since I recently moved to the US and the main visitors to my websites are coming from the US as well, I'd rather relocate to a server somewhere in North America.

    I do want to use my server not only to host some websites (some of them have 500k visits per month with up to 100.000.000 or more hits - lot's of small files and images) but also want to use it as mail server and maybe some game related servers once in a while (or at least teamspeak).

    Someone recommended digitalocean.com to me and from my first impression they are looking very promising, but.. when reading trough the internet I see quite a few bad things about them, as for example their IPs being blacklisted on all the major email servers, and being blacklisted on google analytics. Or can I work around that somehow?

    If not, does anyone have a good recommendation?
    I do not need too much space on the server, 40-60gb is fine. All I really care about s reliability, performance and speed. Also, I do want to setup things myself, not a big fan of those pre-configured systems.

    Any tips are highly appreciated! :)

    You should relocate your server to US. This can add additional benefit for SEO as well. I would recommend you to look for companies providing SSD Cloud VPS.
