    While I have no direct experience with them, in taking a look at their website, a few things stood out as odd:
    In their "About Us" section:
    "Our internet connection has unlimited bandwidth to suit your hosting application."
    That tends to scream red flag around these parts, as it just simply isn't possible..
    They state that they have their own certified techs, etc, on-site at their data-center, but also say they only monitor to see if their network is running every 10 minutes.. This also tends to put up a red flag as to the validity of the claim that they have anyone employed by -them- that is on-site at all..
    In checking their BBB Online logo on their site, they have had 9 complaints, of which most were resolved, a few not, and their real name is Profusesolutions.com - here is that website:
    http://www.profusesolutions.com/index.html
    It looks like they do business under no less than 5 different names, and all the pages on their main site are basically blank. Another slight red flag..

    Ok more info..
    My opinion - Stay away from these guys with a 10 foot pole.. Why?
    Take a look at one of their sites, http://chimehost.com/
    They say you get "Unlimited disk space, Unlimited Traffic, AND Web Design, for $6.95" - As anyone on here that has been around for a while will tell you, that's a -very- bad sign..
    Their about page is a carbon copy of the site you asked about, they just changed the name.. Fishy all the way around..

    , the whole group looks fishy... As Mike suggested, I also recommend staying away from company's that offer "unlimited" bandwidth and space.
    All the best,

    My guess is a customized templete from somewhere. Anybody going to try it? Just kidding, don't waste your money.

    lol..wouldn't be surprised to see like a dozen websites that look like mine but differ slightly lol..

    PropspinMike has done a very good research on them. Thanks for that. Definitely that will help many. Everything unlimited is always suspicious.

    It should say something that their own "main" website design is mostly blank anyways. All of the sites are easily templatemonster style templates, and haven't even been edited..
    Ahh host that just makes the industry look so good...

    Comments certainly appreciated - I'm just sick of hosts trying to get one past people.. While all industries have a few bad apples, this one has always proven to have slightly more than its' fair share..

    Thank you all for leaving posts but i see you guys are saying its suspicious that the host shows you get unlimited everything when Hostgator.com basically does the same thing.

    There's a difference between random hosts like this and large real companies such as HG who have the infrastructure to support their claims.
