    Thumbs up [30ish Days] ServerBeach Review

    First off, I have always wanted to be a customer of ServerBeach since I found out that they hosted YouTube and so on. I have found their prices to be kind of high compared to all the others until they started offering their "Twitter" deals, and that is how a price I could not turn down came into my life.

    Well, I ordered a server through Server Beach 7/12/2009 and have been rocking it out at 100% uptime since they set it up for use on 7/14/2009. When I first placed my order I had to send in a photo ID and such to verify it was me ordering the server, which I found to be kind of reassuring knowing that the datacenter took fraud that serious. It might have just been me though!

    Server Specs
    AMD Opteron 1218
    2 GB DDR2 Memory (up to 667MHz)
    2 x 500 GB 7200 RPM SATA II , RAID 1
    Unlimited (10mbps) bandwidth (AKA 3300ish GIGs?)
    Herndon, Virginia

    So far, I have had NO network problems! My server is located in their Virgina datacenter outside of Washington DC. Which is a blessing coming from a former FDC Servers user. They have a super fast network, websites load fast.

    I have had to contact support a few times, and they were knowledgeable and extremely helpful. One thing I love about ServerBeach support, is that they treat all questions as a true problem, even if it's just a question that has nothing to do with the server being down or anything like that. Support also answers tickets amazingly fast by the way!

    I love the fact that I have a set account manager. I love being able to call a single person if I need something outside the realm of support needs.

    All in all, these first 30 days have been spectacular, and I look to spending a long time with ServerBeach.

    Side Note!

    Can I ask, what do you pay each month for your server?

    Is that still true? I know they had an issue with the VA datacenter.

    Youtube used dedicated hosting in the beginning, but once they were aquired by google they moved to google's datacenters. Just fyi.

    Yea, I was part of that major power outage in VA. It effected me very little though. I do my outage percentage weekly not monthly. Besides the power outage, I still have had no downtime for any other issues. I also got some free t-shirts from the power outage! Not to mention all customers got a pretty in depth email from the CEO and it pretty much just built my trust with ServerBeach even more.

    So far still no issues what so ever with ServerBeach!

    Yet again another month of pure 100% uptime according to PSM and Pingdom. As of now, I am 100% sure that moving to ServerBeach was the best business decision we have ever made.
