    communitech was flamed several times... It may be based on some real problems?

    Look in this board for more info.

    Thanks for the information!

    I've been surfing around this forum for a few days and I see the acronyms VDI and DI used a good bit. Just so I am sure, what does VDI stand for?

    The problems with Communitech seem to be that

    1. They notified hundreds of shared server customers that their accounts would be closed in 24-48 hours (it varied) unless they made plans to move to a dedicated server

    2. Communitech seems to have grossly inflated the amount of bandwidth usage reported to many of these customers as part of the justification for their actions. One gal who posted here reported her real usage, once she got a dedicated server elsewhere, was less than a third of what Communitech had reported.

    Though that wouldn't seem to have a direct bearing on co-locating with them, would you really want to do business with cheats and liars? If they lied about that, they could lie to you about something else. By doing business with disreputable companies, it rewards them for cheating others.

    VDI

    Typical user - I was going to vdi.com, not vdi.net, but I did find their website!

    VDI...well, I am looking for co-location, not dedicated server. They are all about Linux dedicated servers. They only mention co-lo on their site once. There is no page for co-lo at all and absolutely no pricing. I guess I will have to call their sales people (yuck).

    Why does picking a host feel like playing pin-the-tail-on-the-donkey (and I end up feeling like an ass)?

    Onward and upward!

    Communitech.net

    I have been with communitech for 2 years now and I have had an excellent experience there. They offer good plans, don't know them off the top of my head, and good support. They also have a GREAT forum of users that share ideas and problems, yes they like everyone else have problems.

    Communitech

    The ones with the most problems are always the loudest, with their vast amount of clients you will obviously get more discontent, then with a small 100-250 user base. Most of us a communitech think they are really well done, and their prices are really good too! Support excellent!

    Today, I just cancelled 9 accounts with Communitech.net. I have been with them since Feb '99. There support, customer service, billing, and attitude towards theri customer has dropped from Good-Very Good, to absolutely terrible during my time there. Average server load is over 2.00 more than it is under 2.00. Too many accounts fighting for those precious system resources.

    I got a dedicated server from catalog.com last week. I have had no problems so far, but I am only using a small portion of the resouces so far.

    I narrowed my search down to catalog.com and dialtoneinternet.com before deciding to go with catalog.com.

    I'm far from a linux guru so I am learning as I go.

    Alabanza has been dropped from the good dedicated server company. Awsome. Their perfect little company image is now tarnished.

    It's just unbelievable how fast it happened... ehh?
