1. They quoted for the amount of RAM that I was NOT requesting
2. They said I would be "better off" on a dedi based on a offering he was able to issue for it. It's might of been a "deal" but I informed them that I was expecting to start off as low of an operating cost as possible.
I am very not happy to see that such a company headed in such direction...
I'm sorry to hear you had this sort of experience. Do you mind sharing what they quoted you and what you planned on using a dedicated server for? When I contacted their Pre-Sales, I was already with another provider and knew what I was looking for in terms of specs. I wasn't willing to pay more than what I was already paying for with my existing provider at that time. When I explained that in the beginning, they never gave me hassle or push back during our discussion via email. Matter of fact, I got a personal email from one of the higher-ups congratulating me on becoming a customer of theirs and said that it is rare to see specs like mine get approved at such a low price.
