A friend of mine uses this company. I was looking at their website and did some investigating of my own and it looks like a scam. They offer unbelievable amounts of bandwidth for less than $25. They have to be majorly overselling. Also, i did a reverse lookup on their domain and they appear to be using a hostdime server. They claim to have their own datacenter. Can anybody figure out what they're doing? I want to try to convince my friend that they are probably ripping him off and that he probably won't get the service that he bought. Thanks for any and all input!
Reading about them on different forums and net and they seem to have a good reputation in hosting thus far for overselling. The problem I see is HostDime (where they are located). HostDime does not have the best reputation. Also they claim they own the NOC but HostDime owns the Noc which means they are either lying or HostDime is lying???????
Ah, we must have different definitions of owning a datacenter then . My definition is when you have the building, the connections, the staff and then you rent all of your servers and colo others. I guess the definition is now changing too? Just like Quality Hosting used to mean good solid prices with no overselling .
I see no reason for them to have to own the building to say they own the datacenter.
I owned a restaurant in the Cayman Islands. It was in a mall. I didn't own the mall, but I still considered myself the owner of the restaurant.
i also know a guy who has hosting with them and he has asked them if he could oversell and they said he could, he says there pretty good, if your a big company you can do whatever you want really.
I'm sure that their resellers can oversell based on what they offer. I don't see how they can possibly offer 200GB of bandwidth without overselling. I just think thats a lot to offer for only $25. I think that if they got about 5 customers who pushed that plan to its max, they'd be in trouble.

That's all very impressive virtualwebc. I'm sure everyone is fascinated and totally impressed. Of course it all means nothing if you give lousy service.
Since you seem to spend far more time spouting off about other companies it leads me to believe you can't rely on your service.
