    512mb xen for $1/mo? That's too unrealistic

    Twitter Bootstrap Themes for your software projects. I recommend Prometeus and Catalyst Host

    "Trusted by over 1 000 000 customers" WTF¿?

    I think they've been around for a while. I'm not sure about VPS but they used to offer decent shared hosting if I remember correctly. It's been at least 5 years since, a lot could've changed.

  • I saw their Shared Hosting and Reseller a few years ago. And it were good, last time I checked

  • Awardspace? They have free shared hosting with good uptime, several years ago..

  • Just purchased it for the lulz... Doubt it will even turn up, or anything, But it seems stupidly expensive afterwards.

    "You might ask, how much it would cost after 6 months? 98.94 EUR or 122.408568 U.S. dollars per month (That’s what the support said)"

    This looks like a really bad investment to be honest, especially for somebody paying £100/month LOL! Curious where this is hosting, anybody feel like finding out? (It's picked up by WebOfTrust as unsafe but isnt listed on any spamhaus or anything like that.).

    I'll gladly pay $123/m. I get four dedicated CPUs, 2 memory slots dedicated to only me, a raid controller assigned only to my vm, and a hefty bandwidth allotment at 100mbit right? Oh wait...

    I'm all about the 4000% markup. I guess you only need two idiot customers to generate quite the profit.

  • True that, A friend of mine didnt know I did web design, pays somebody £60/yr for 200MB Storage hosting and "minor" text site edits. I almost choked.

  • @eastonch said: £60/yr for 200MB Storage

    aww.. that's bad... I hate people taking advantage of someone..
