I just thought that I would post some reviews on a few shell co's that i've used

Crazy shells

The setup process was fairly quick,the shell quality was nice to start with... however they seemed to reboot alot :/ Then one day the server just went down, after speaking with tech support it seemed that the server had been fried in a memory install, after a week of downtime I cancelled this account
The Host Busters

My shell with the host busters was OK and no more, it would go down for hours at a time and it seemed that tech support would randomly dissapear :/

I just cant say enough good things about this company! my shell with them has only been down once and that was only for about 30 mins due to a DDoS attack, tech support is just amazing too! and to top it all off they have amazing prices
