Well, hostmania.net finally came back up. Now that they're back online, a couple of questions...
- How is their support? Chavvon hasn't answered my email. I can understand that this might be due to their recent domain problems. But it worries me nonetheless. Do they answer support issues promptly?
- Does anyone know anything about their Cogent promo server? Looks like an interesting deal, pretty much what I'm looking for. How about reliability? Speed? Support?
- What is their relationship with eservers.biz? Are they one and the same company? Partners? Good friends? Is eServers a reseller?
I thought the provisioning system was to install the software on each server, like there is a template on one server and then it is just sent in to the server via the ethernet card like a hard drive image, you reboot and wallah, server is up and running.
so you order alot of the same spec'ed machines and its sorta like norton ghost and gets everything running in a few mins? ? which is why they would charge for custom partitions as they would have to install the os by hand?
Your guess as good as mine here - but if you go with the default, I suppose via this system you could expect a server up (if the server is built) in something like 20 mins, or less, depending on how fast the transfer is. I dont' knowl, never done it, but it sounds cool.
