    I need to host a 200kb static page to be slashdotted/dugg... is nearlyfreespeech good

    I need to host a 200kb static page to be slashdotted/dugg... is nearlyfreespeech good enough to handle the hosting without much slowdown? Is it a reputable host? How's its speed? I've read some great reviews of it on this site, but the site itself looks shady.

    Thanks for the help

    I've never been dugg while on nfs but I can tell you they are a stand up company. Speeds are good but I can't say anything about support as I've never used it.

    They say they know how to handle it, and seem pretty confident when they say so:

    What happens if I get slashdotted?

    A "major slashdotting" of a site hosted on our service will cost you (on average) less than $10, one time. The best part about that is that as soon as it's over, your costs go back to normal, but you'll save any usage-based discount resulting from the traffic burst. There's no higher-tier pricing to get permanently pushed into, and we won't cancel you for having something to say that people actually want to hear.

    This happens to one of our members about once a week, so you can bet we know how to handle it. Or rather, our systems do. Our load-adaptive clustering technology is at its best when handling demand surges, and our pricing is at its best when you'd prefer not to be billed based on a 1% event the other 99% of the time.

    It would be quite silly of them to encourage such sites to be put on their servers, if they could not handle it.

    but the site itself looks shady.
    When looking at Google.com, would you say it's worth billions, and dominating its market?
