Every few months or so I get so pleased with ServerBeach again. The service is just awesome!
I’ve been a customer with them for about a year and a half now. I started out paying $119/mo. Their prices have dropped during that time, so I’m only paying $89/mo now. That sounds like a lot; but this is one purchase that is totally worth it.
1) Flawless Uptime.
Since moving to ServerBeach, my sites have *never* been down. Check out this screenshot of uptime; the box has never been rebooted since I started with them, and my monitoring software has never detected a blip of downtime on the network.
2) Awesome bandwidth.
Downloading a 30MB movie today, I exceeded 1000Kbps from my site. That rocks.
3) Freedom to build.
Having your own server means you can install anything, build anything, and test anything. Shared accounts are super cheap, but often lack these features. Having a dedicated server is really worth it.
Anyway, sorry for the advertisement. But these guys really do rock, and I’m a happy customer. If you find this useful; the link gets me a referral credit.
