Just a quick post to let folks know about my experience with Corenetworks. I run a very small business doing consulting and some hosting (only if I compiled the code myself). I manage my own machines and feel that if it can't be done in vi then it isn't worth doing
I've been through alot of cheap hosts including managed.com, godaddy.com, and two different resellers of burst.net - both of whom ripped me off (thanks for vetting your resellers you wingnuts). Cost is a huge issue for me as I'm not quite to break even on hosting vs. cost.
The experience with Corenetworks has shown me that you can have an affordable and quality experience. I have been with them for about 6 months now and they have done a great job. Except for a few short times where they told me that they were experiencing a DDOS event they have been rock solid. They were able to tell me almost instantly that they were experiencing these events so I can handle this. None of the events were for more than a few minutes.
Overall I'd recommend them in a heartbeat.
Some domains I run to check - xigole.com, hotjoe.com.
