    newbie with data center questions

    hello,
    i am about to get a resellers account with a web host who has servers at Interserve in secaucus, N.J and Hurricaine Electric, freemont, Ca
    Do these data centers have good reputations?..his other servers are in The Planet but unfortunately they are not available.
    any input would be appreciated

    Hello,

    HE.NET has a decent reputation, network, and datacenter. They are also very cheap, which is a plus to some customers.

    Thanks, Kyle

    I would vote 'no' for interserver.

    Not worth the money.

    HE has consistently had one of the lowest ping times in my experience throughout the years. That's a plus if I were to choose among data centers.

    No idea about Interserver though.

    Cheers

    As long as you're with Hurricane in Freemont they're good. Here in Chicago they're sub-par.

    HE is good depending on where you pick it up. Large hub are much better than their smaller sites. Freemont and NYC would be the best place to get them. Anything mid / centeral US I would stay far away from, but I do hear they are working to make things better in those parts.
