    Each server is connected at 100 Mbit to RackShack network (as any normal RackShack server, except those $399 Compaqs which are capped at 10 Mbit). The network itself is connected to Internet at 4.2 Gbit
    do you have your own cages and that 100mbit pipe there or whats the deal?
    No, we don't have own cages inside RackShack. Those are standard RackShack servers
    and what providers ? all of them or just cogent
    All providers you see listed at www.rackshack.net/aboutus/networks.asp

    Servers are unmanaged as they are with RackShack. However we try to support all problems not supported by RackShack directly. Most of the problems we deal with (90% or so) are caused by wrong software configuration and never escalated to RackShack. The following problems are escalated: network issues, cold reboot requests, requests for additional IP addresses etc., i.e. those issues we can't deal with without RackShack's participation. There are 3 people in 3 different timezones who monitor [email protected] e-mail.

    For additional fee of $25/mo. we perform regular updates of Red Hat Linux packages via Red Hat Network, including kernel upgrades; Plesk or Ensim patches, etc. Please see saburovo.com/upgrade

    Not a partnership (partnership is a legal term), but we have special arrangement. As large RackShack customer we buy our servers in bulk -- last purchase was 25 servers. We have 58 servers with RackShack at the moment (of 81 servers total).

    There are couple of comments from RackShack's HeadSurfer (CEO) Robert Marsh in one of the threads I listed above:

    I noticed on your signup page how you only accept Paypal. I would strongly recommend expanding that list with something like 2checkout or revcon. I know a lot of people who won't conduct buisness using paypal, myself included. Just a suggestion.

    Yes, PayPal has some very bad sides to it, especially if you sell a lot. I prefer companies with their own merchant accounts. If they dont have that, 2CO is ok.

    quite true. I know of at least one reputable web hosting company that used Paypal (in conjunction with other methods), and suddenly had its account frozen by PalPay. Paylpay cited irregular activity, and wouldn't release the funds. It finally got resolved, but the hosting company stopped accepting paypal payment since due to the lesson.

    Yes, thats why I suggest a merchant account or 2CO and maybe accept paypal on the side, if they don't have a cc, but like for every 100 sales you get, 90-95 should be normal, the rest paypal. All paypal is scary. lol

    Thank you for the suggestion. I looked at different merchant options since October 2001 and I could not find anyone better than PayPal in terms of rates and security. At the moment PayPal's rates are very competitive -- 2.2%, and I already went through the cycle of freezing/unfreezing the account (should happen to anyone at least once to make PayPal happy ), I found they are willing to solve the issues pretty quickly.

    Anyway, I will continue to look for alternative payment solutions.

    Couldn't sign up as well - paypal is not well known outside of the US/Canada.

    I believe it's all of RS's network providers. See his 2nd or 3rd post above.

    It takes him kind of long to return emails don't you think?

    How long did it take him to get your server setup?

    Please advice if you are unsatisfied with return times of your e-mails. I thought all of them were returned within 24 hour period? Did we miss anything?
