    I'm not making a single thing from this post, there is no ref link here, nothing, these are just great prices on vps's that just appeared and i felt like sharing it with ya's

    http://volumedrive.com/order/

    top vps with cpanel works out to 29/mo... pretty sexy deal imo... us based, bhw is hosted at vd, enjoy...

    I don't think VD is that good.. I tried it b4, and I didn't hear great things about it...

    plus, it's kinda/extremely slow. BHW is defo an exception..

    it's 2 am here, i guess it's time to sleep, i just didn't see/read correctly hehehe, i'll try next month

    there's so many bad/good reviews about shared/vps hosts, i can't believe those reviews directly, i usually try shared/vps services myself :D
    i don't mind losing some bucks, it's one of my hobbies :D

    shrug you have a right to your opinion, iv been using them for years now and iv stuck with them, they have done right by me for a LONG time, everything just keeps getting better with them as time goes on

    as for slow, i get 1800k/s on a single thread download from vd these days... considering my dsl line max is 2050k/s and that there is an ocean between the dc and me... im not complaining

    I get a warning when trying to go to this site, that it is untrusted and trying
    to create their own security certificate. It says to definitely avoid this site. :eek:

    Dem's some crazy prices, anyone else have experience with them? I think I'm going to grab one or two of these and give it a try.

    wow those are great prices. For some reason I can't find a way to access that page from the main website and it has the BHW favicon. Weird.

    But I will definitely sign up with them. Thanks trophaeum for another great hosting suggestion.

    Wow, for $5/m why not go with this over a shared host? Although, who knows what the heck you actually get from these packages because there is no information about them. I wouldn't be surprised if this is ran out of somebody's basement.

    How many domains can you host on this without any selecting a control panel and if you choose cPanel?

    Has anyone tried this service yet?

    rofl this is a vps dude, you can host as many sites as you want with or without cpanel, without cpanel though its upto you to configure the server for your domains/email/etc

    and vd are far from run in some basement, bhw is hosted there amongst many others, they may not be as big as hostgator or any of those places but they do their job quite well

    for dedi's you are better off emailing sales@vd and talking to josh and seeing what specials the have going at the time, they normally have some REALLY good deals going

    I have been looking for a cheap and reliable VPS for a while now. Maybe I'll give these guys a go. Their prices are really good.

    Why not host onshore? I would imagine because it's where most of their visitors are from.
