    My friend has used them before, he did not enjoy his experience, and ended up switching to who I use, PowerVPS.com
    PowerVPS features flawless support, servers are top notch, and the technicians know exactly what they are doing... I've been using them for about 8 months, and I don't have a single complaint

    Did your friend use our VPS services before or after we started utilizing Virtuozzo? We have also just done major hardware upgrades to our VPS systems.

    WebsterD,

    I haven't personally dealt with them for VPS itself but they do an amazing job with the server(s) I've rented from them.

    If their support team is anything like it is with the dedicateds - you definitely can't go wrong in checking them out!

    I visited steadfastnetworks. I didn't see any recent hardware upgrade in the maintenance schedule. I heard from people that the vps is pretty slow.

    Correct, because with Virtuozzo VPSes can be migrated to another server with virtually no downtime, several seconds at the most. The VPSes get moved, and no one notices, except for the fact that the VPS is much faster. We have upgraded the hardware on all our VPS nodes over the past week or so, except for the couple VPSes we haven't gotten moved yet.

    My friend who is using steadfastnetworks said it has a very good technical support. Every support ticket is answered promptly. Even though he experienced slow vps due to hardware issue in the server, he said he is satisfied with steadfastnetworks. I guess I would choose steadfastnetworks vps next time.

    Truely an excellent company. I signed up during their 2 month free offer, and am certain I will be keeping it. That have also always been avaiable for support, even when I called in at 3 am after getting the setup info to have some problems and RDNS setup

    Karl Zimmer is also a great guy, I messed up a few things during the order process, and he got it all fixed up for me

    The number of people promoting PowerVPS these days is beginning to confuse me.

    They always talk about problems with the prior provider/other provider, and how great PowerVPS is. Just the "vivid" descriptions featuring marketing words such as "flawless" confused me

    This isnt saying this post is advertisement, just me noticing something

    I think I see what you see. Not so much confusing to me, just an instinct. Whatever the case, the experience of "a friend" doesn't interest me whether the opinion is good or bad. I appreciate your helpful comment. My instinct also says you are right about Steadfast.

    Thank You,

    My objective is always to give an honest opinion.

    If you are intersted in Steadfast, I would suggest talking to Karl about any special deals they can give you. I'm sure that you and him can work something out so you can really get a good feel on the service.
