Top of Line Hosting & Help
John Kelly,
These folks are the best.. they even help you with getting started and any quirks you might have with setting up your OWN host! They do this out of withOUT you paying for any special 'help/support'! They are very knowledgeabl... More e (even Linux!). There api (user web site) is awesome, with all of the bells and switches an admin would need to set up a complete remote host/server! John Less
Good service
Peter Potrowl,
I am using a container VPS. It is simple and efficient. It was easy to set up and has been working nice for a few years. The price is reasonable.

Slow Support Response
Ifti ...,
I have an account with Gandi but lost my credentials since some of the people left the organization without leaving the information. I am communicating with them and all they have to say is to contact the domain owner. Issue ... More is that I don't know who is the domain owner.
Apart from that they take almost a day to respond to any email send to them. They do not have a toll free number for USA or for that matter any number to call if you are a US customer. Not sure how these guys are running their operation in the US with this kind of service.
