I currently have a VPS with ubiquityservers .com. It's used for simple web serving as well as a proxy tunnel for playing games like Aion. (Without SSH socks proxying, ingame latency is about 800+ms. With proxy, it's about 280ms.) Since most companies charge about US$6 for the proxying service, it makes more sense for 7 of my friends to just buy a cheap and simple VPS to try.
I must admit that I'm pleasantly surprised with ubiquity. I placed an order for the server on Wed 3:41 AM (according to email) and server was already up and running by Wed 5:16 AM.
I created my first ticket about login issues (it happens, so I don't blame them) at 8:36 AM and got the response in 2 minutes. WTF? I've never seen this kind of ridiculously fast response time, not with LayeredTech, PacificRack or iWeb (they are good hosts nevertheless). Maybe the techs just happen to be looking at my ticket first by chance but it was very pleasing to me.
A week later, they got DDOSed. I emailed to ask about the connectivity at 1.06PM (I'm on GMT+8 so it's probably really late in their DC.). I got the response in 5 mins. O_O. I'm pleased with their response times once again. The whole issue got resolved quickly.
2 days back, I decided to be a little adventurous and out try OpenVPN. I contacted them for support as /dev/net/tun was not writable in the containers. After 2 mails, the request was forwarded to the VPS admins who promptly enabled it for my container.
I did some searching on their wiki and found that my 'baby vps' is being shared with 127 other containers. It's only $18 so there's nothing I can complain about.
I am writing this post because I feel that this host deserves a mention. If anyone wants to try out a VPS, do give them a shot.
