Since I have had bad experiences so far - I am trying to find the best.
Heres some tips if your ever going too choose a hosting provider.
I extremely discourage the use of Burst.
They are unable too compile a kernel that works for there own hardware
on a debian system they setup.
They are unable too configure and test grub too make sure they box
actually boots with the proper default kernel.
But they are great in the things you do get ie 25% packet loss.
20hours of downtime between a mis-configure kernel and grub, from there sys admins
They do not answer emails, they say that sometimes emails just go missing, which there ceo said
When your server is down and offline expect 6hr delays.
They avoid giving you answers and just say how you complain and whine,
yes sure, but thats what you get when a server is down for 20hours!
But apart from there lack of communications from there support,
they are a great provide *coughs*
Think twice, before choosing a provider
