    there are FAR better deals to be found especially with aplus.net's support system. If you enjoy 2 day response times to tech support questions go for it.

    If you do a search on that company here you'll what their support is like. APlus' horrible support reputation makes the deal worthless no matter what they offer.

    i really surprised while i was reading reviews about aplus.net
    i have ordered that dedicated account a few months ago. i havent built a site right now so i cant review their speed or reliability etc. but while setting up the server whenever i called aplus people there helped me a lot. i just will be happy to hear cons of aplus as i am a customer of it and try to build some business on this server. thanks for your replies...

    Some people get lucky with Aplus... most don't. They used to call me (I have no idea how they got my private cell #) and solicite me, incredibly annoying.

    Ouch, that was a big mistake. Never pre-pay for 12 months until you've established a working relationship between your company and theirs.

    10 months is a *long* time in this industry. Ask that question in 9 when we will be better suited to help you find a new host, assuming you want to leave by then. Good luck!
