Saw their offer on LEB. Are they legit?

    "Snow", eh? What do you think the odds are it will last until next Summer ?

    Also the correct question is not if they are "legit" but if they are "good". I would best against any new current LEB featured host being so.

  • I signed up for their small (1GB) plan, paid the invoice immediately, but their website still indicated that the invoice has not been paid and it's been more than 36 hours. I created a ticket and gave them a screen shot of the Paypal transaction/receipt.

    It's probably due to holiday weekend so I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt. However, the whole operation seems pretty barebone. We'll see. I just need a simple monitoring/personal VPN node in Chicago or Dallas.

  • I got a server created by could not boot (disk not bootable). Switch to rescue mode, still not boot. Asking for custom iso load but did not get any response yet. NOT a good way to start.

    Their control panel is barebone WHMC with just boot/reboot/shutdown/rescue/vnc.

  • You don't need a disk to idle your snowman vps. :wink:

    @jbuggie you are very patient. The above sales pitch contradicts what you say has been your experience

  • I'm interested in this as well somewhat

  • best way is to check their previous offers and read comments below, you will get your answer.

  • Finally got in using system-rescuecd-iso. Here is some juicy benchmark
