    Corenetworks

    Do they actually own their IP space/etc? Looks like they get off GLC to me, or GLC owns then.

    Any reviews on this? Seems pretty cheap. I get a good 6MB/s from their speedtest too.

    I currently have the cheapest $25/m server from them, on a 10mbit port until I need to upgrade to 100mbit, and for the price, I have to admit it's awesome. If your looking for a cheap, functional server without a lot of perks, I would recommend going with corenetworks for sure.

    I wanted to get one of their $24.95 servers with DirectAdmin ($18 extra/month) but I was told by their sales dept. that they were all out of those and had ordered more parts but there was not ETA on when more would be in stock.

    Quite a shame because I wanted to test them out as we are looking for a new home for our other servers.

    Hopefully I won't be kept waiting long on their list.

    Anyone else heard anything on this?

    Corenetworks is a wholly owned subsidiary of GLC (Great Lakes Comnet). At least that is my understanding from them.

    I've had a server with them since Feb of last year, and have never had any problems. They actually do have 24/7 email support, as I had to contact them Thanksgiving day, at an odd hour, and still around a 10 minute response. Note that they do sort by urgency.

    I've never had any problems with them, its much more then I would expect for the price. There's nothing AWESOME about them, besides the price, but they're at least comparable to the competition in other aspects.

    Also to note, they do offer IPKVM, and remote reboot, which is another plus. They do run out of stock commonly though, probably due to how low their profit margin is, and how big the demand must be.

    I've had a box at CoreNetworks for about 14 months now and I would agree that they are better than I expected for the money.

    Pros:
    - attractive pricing
    - great support
    - remote boot included by default
    - IP KVM available

    Cons:
    - Network stability isn't as good as other hosts. In particular their routes to Level(3) via 123.net seem to have hiccups every day. The routes to Verizon/Alter.net and ATT seem more stable.

    It should be noted that if you're planning on hosting an EFNet ircd there you probably won't last too long. They don't specialize in DoS protection, and with their margins they can't retain customers who will attract those kind of issues.

    I wholly recommend CoreNetworks, their services are great.
    Only problem is that they're often out of stock for servers!

    Kindest Regards,

    I've been using CoreNetworks for almost a year now and this is one exception where the phrase "you get what you pay for" does NOT apply.

    For $25/mo, its definitely a steal. Russell and Andrew help out in any way and every way they can, even when emailed at 3am in the morning. They offer remote reboot and KVMoIP included.

    Their network is pretty solid as well. I think they use ATT, UUNET, Savvis and Level3. I personally never noticed any lag or downtime.

    So, yea, dont have second thoughts going with them. I'm sure you'll have a good experience.

    As I said before, I'd LOVE to get a $24.95 box with them but they are still out of them with NO ETA on when they will have more in.

    That rots. Guess I'll just have to wait some more. :-(

    Over the past year I think I've only seen them have the $24.95 server in stock maybe 3 or 4 times, and it never lasted more than a week. Understandably so -- those boxes are an incredible value.

    They were sold out for a year+ at one point, and it looked like they were either going out of buisness or something of the sort. Then one day they opened back up and started selling again, I was lucky enough to grab one of the starter servers before they sold out, but you really have to watch their site daily to avoid missin a deal on the cheapest server, they sell out very quick.
