    Arrow WebNX 2 month review!

    We've been with WebNX for about 2 months now, and we're loving it. We already rent 11 servers there and are looking to purchase another 10-20 in the near future!

    Support/Sales

    WebNX support is excellent, I must say. From the start their sales team has responded promptly (within a few hours) and almost always had a solution for my requests. We had (1) ticket opened in the support department and that was promptly handled in a few minutes.

    I'd like to thank Dario and Chris who have helped me with my sales inquiries. I had a dedicated server purchased a few days ago and I needed rush setup, they gave me some options and I really loved the flexibility.


    Hardware

    Hardware is amazing. Fast, good quality, built to order. I like it. The thing about WebNX (as many others say), is that if you're only looking for one or two small Q6600's, they're not the provider for you. If you want a 32 core server with 20 hard drives, they can do that. Or if you want to buy in bulk, they can do that. When you follow those two "rules", they're one of the best providers in terms of bang for your buck.



    Network

    Network is top notch. They use lots of bandwidth providers and for the price you're getting, it's amazing how fast these servers are. We'll always be buying from WebNX for our Los Angeles needs. I'm sure if they expanded to Dallas, Chicago, even NYC they'd get a lot more business though! .

    One thing I do wonder - do they use a BGP transit? Because whenever I traceroute my servers I only get connections though Cogent.




    Overall, WebNX is amazing. We'll be with them for the months to come, for sure! They have my business and my future business.

    When tracing their main Website from Europe, the route goes through Level3 and Mzima. So not only Cogent, as it seems.

    When I trace their site I get it through Level3 and Mzima too, but my servers go through Cogent .

    Do you have an IP to test?

    //Edit:
    When tracerouting "nixism.com", then it is completely going through Level3.

    I am in Germany right now. The traceroute to 216.18.197.130 looks like this:

    So from DTAG (German Telecom) through PCCW directly to your server. Quite a short route...

    I have experienced the opposite with them. Whether you want custom heavy configurations, or smaller Q6600 one-offs, they've been excellent to deal with either way.

    Nixism.com isn't hosted on WebNX yet, we host our sites offsite (main ones) - when I do a traceroute to my server IP I gave you it goes from different POP's that are all cogentco's.


    Nich - yeah, they have some nice clearance servers. .

    I personally go through he.net the ip you provided (216.18.197.130), I know they use HE, cogent, mzima, linkline, level3 (although I think this may be via linkline) and I am not sure if there are any others yet but they definitely are others coming. As the range you are in is their new ip range for their own BGP.

    We have been using them for about 2 years or maybe longer. So far it's been great, at around 150 servers just now, plus however many referrals. For myself at least it's been the first time there has been a perfect fit with any provider.

    They are great for both larger spec'ed and small budget servers, we have all sorts of different servers ranging from small to extremely large and from all budgets. I think the lowest price server we have is about $120 but you could get lower just not sure why you would when it's so cheap but we have servers in all shapes from 32gb ram development servers for < $250 to monster servers with $7,000 setup fees. They are VERY flexible which is really what I like the most.

    I shall have to write a full review, as it would be several pages long, in the next few weeks.

    Thank you for the warm words guys!

    As far as the comment about cogent, its one of our least used providers, mainly in the mix for redundancy and better routes to cogent clients. If everything goes as planned we will have at least 4 more providers online by the end of the year.
