    Packets: Sent = 4, Received = 4, Lost = 0 (0% loss),

    That is one heavy datacenter!

    Seriously though, they seem true to their word, however the price is a little on the low end, but not so low that it looks like a "to good to be true offer". The only other problem i see is that they seem to require a one year prepayment (but they do offer a 30day money back guarantee). I'd suggest asking them for a free trial or monthly payments and then asking them what their cancellation policy is for after your 30th day.

    Thanks for your input, akash... It is much appreciated.

    Btw, I forgot to say that I sent a mail asking where their servers were located and they answered in a few hours (on a Sunday).

    Here is their answer:
    We have servers in Dockland, London also in Los Angeles, USA. So when you sign up with us, just add in the comments box where would you like your site to be hosted.
