If you want to run a reliable server without emptying your wallet, online.net is the place to be. I don't understand where all these negative reviews come from. Might be from the competition, who knows. People that complain t... More hat they had to wait 24 hours before their server got rebooted are clueless. Even when you can't authenticate on your server, you can still reboot it or shut it down and later start it back up from the admin webinterface provided by online.net ... so why would you wait x minutes ?!?
In 30-60 minutes it is re-installed with the OS of your choice and restore your data from backup.
The times that I had to contact support was with questions about billing. I received an answer an hour or two later. Even when the question was asked at 22:00 hours CET !
In short I highly recommend online.net !

We have been with Site5 for 7years. And we started to move project by project to an other hoster.
The following start happening with our projects:
- Login stopped working
- You could not even reset the password (email not re... More ceived)
I had the most frustrating time with the support.

Multiple scam and spam originating from these guys on a daily basis. The scammers are just making up domains and these guys just let them go and do nothing about it.
