Jorge Vergara,

Login page says "This site is restricted" I have tried to resolve the issue with 6 different support agents, spent more than 2 hours each time, and none of them has been able to help me out. Those guys are completely useless.... More Do yourself a favor and keep your stuff away from this host! Less
Horrible experience

I tried several VMs - was never able to really use them. The most annoying experience is with access to VM - the remote access is simply hell! No way to access password change and the support is catastrophic.
