    Invision Power Service Hosting - Opinions?

    Anyone any experience with a dedicated server with ipshosting.com ?

    They say it's a managed service (although I can't find any definition of what this means with them) which is a plus for me. Also they have a UK phone support number.. another plus.

    Are they reselling someone elses servers?

    Well the IP for their hosting site belongs to Powersurge Technologies Inc, not Invision Power Services..

    I would suggest that you look for a provider that specializes in providing managed servers rather than making forum software. I also did not see any details of what they actually managed. Considering their practice of hiding extra charges (as they do with their forum software) I would want a detailed, specific outline of exactly what they consider is included in a fully managed server. Then you can look and see what they charge extra for.

    You could try ServInt, I've used them for quite a while now and they are the best I've ever had. They have been providing managed servers for over 9 years now. They have great support, a great network and they take good care of the server for you with no hidden charges. They also own their own datacenter on the East Coast which is a plus for the UK speeds...

    Is this still the case I wonder?

    I pinged ipshosting.com and got the IP: 208.42.236.12

    This resolves to:

    Non-authoritative answer:
    12.236.42.208.in-addr.arpa canonical name = 12.0-127.236.42.208.in-addr.arpa.
    12.0-127.236.42.208.in-addr.arpa name = corp01.ipslink.com.

    Authoritative answers can be found from:
    0-127.236.42.208.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns1.ipslink.com.
    0-127.236.42.208.in-addr.arpa nameserver = ns2.ipslink.com.
    ns1.ipslink.com internet address = 208.42.236.7
    Has anyone got any further info? I'm considering a DS from Invision Power Services. Thanks.

    Mark_TVI. I believe they left HE.net sometime ago:

    Data393 Inc. D393-DC-INVERNESS1 (NET-208-42-224-0-1)
    208.42.224.0 - 208.42.255.255
    Invision Power Services, Inc. D393-ENG-208-42-236-0-25 (NET-208-42-236-0-1)
    208.42.236.0 - 208.42.236.127

    When I made that post back in April that statement was accurate...


    Alien, there is no need to resurrect every ancient Invision thread you can find, you already started one just continue posting your questions there...
