    uhm, Im interested in this hosting, if you have had this hosting please second it for me because I am a little shaky on hitting the purchase button for the following reasons...

    1. No backstory
    2. Support number on the front page is wrong
    3. Low alexa, age of the company etc...

    Let me know if anyone has had good luck with this hosting

    Yeah I use them too. No probs. Sometimes my speed sucks, but other than that, they are pretty cool.

    let me put it this way

    i have 1 box colo'd there (lots of dedicateds but this 1 colo specifically ill tell u the story on), dell poweredge sc1435, dual quad core opteron, 16gig, 2xsata hdd in raid1, now i pay a whole 45/mo to have it colo'd on 100mbit, this thing must cost more than that in power alone

    anyway, to get on with it, i got an email from josh the other day telling my that a SINGLE LIGHT had changed color from blue to orange on the front of the case, no noises, no nothing, 1 light changed color, what would i like done? turns out the light change most likely means a dead fan, since i know how many fans this box has and since i know it wont matter a shit if it keeps churning over with a dead fan iv asked for them to give it the once over (take the lid off, check all the fans etc) next time i shut it down, how many datacenters will notice a single light change color?

    now that im done with my story/rant, ill leave ya's in peace, i have nothing but good things to say about these guys and im a hard monkey to please, if you check my previous posts you will see i post VERY few positive comments about companies/products, i stand by vd kicking ass though
