Our servers currently consist of Dual Processor Opteron, 4 GB of RAM, 15K SCSI Drives. We're getting in new Dual Processor Quad Core Xeons, and they should be up and running soon. We have a very strong hosting environment, all of our hosted sites load quickly and we only use Premium Tier 1 Bandwidth -- no cogent, verio, etc.
If you would prefer, sample sites can be provided to test load times. Also try this test file. We have a very strong reputation here, and if you read through reviews you will see we have a one of kind support team.
what are your regulations on the use of bandwidth and space? can we use the full 500GB and 50GB?
is there SSH access available?
Yes, you may use the full 50 GB / 500 GB, but as with all shared hosts there are resource limitations because you are sharing the server with other customers, and it would be unfair if one site caused everyone else's to load slowly. We are actually well known for our load times and quality of hosting because we combine high end servers with excellent management to prevent one site from taking over and ruining everyone else's experience.
Also do you allow a "software"-website. Most of the pages are info pages (resulting in a little traffic) but there are some pages with download links on it (legal own software!) and they would generate most traffic (30-40gb/month).
Resource limitations is CPU and RAM usage -- download links and files take up almost no resources so that is not a problem. What I was referring to is forums which have 40+ simultanious users, which is something that requires a VPS!
