    They about equal in price comparison, although gandi does seem to have some really cool sales sometimes. Last year or the year before to celebrate their anniversary, they actually had a window of about 6 hours for free domain name registration. And the other sale was $1 or $2 domain registration. Their renewal cost is also kept low.

    I find their dns also to be fairly speeding. Although I wish they would allow for more NS entries. They keep to the typical 5 ns entry standard as most host and registers do. So for most people that won't be an issue.

    edit: wrongfully typed years, when it should have been hours... opps... small typing mistake. lol

    WiredTree has been my VPS provider and dedicated server provider of choice for years. I'd recommend them in a heartbeat.

    I use SimplexWebs on my forum and on my own business website. Superb British web hosting and world class support if needed. All at an acceptable price.

    I was looking at Simplex earlier this year, contemplating their services but a lot of reviews kind of portrayed them badly.
    How long have you been with them? I had wanted to try them
    (they are close to my hometown in NC) but they are owned by EIG which is like this big business who buys hosts and then like ruins them and it kind of scared me off.

    I wouldn't go with them then.
    Even if they are near you. Even if ASO is good now, they will not be in a few months/years.

    I personally haven't had any issues with SimplexWebs. They have had a few outages when they had a DDOS attacks, but for the most part I cannot speak any ill of their service.
    Appreciate that reviews are handy if we're looking to buy something, but not all speak the full truth. For example, someone may give bad rep because support staff didn't answer a ticket in under 1 minute twenty seconds :eek:

    If they ever mess me about, be sure to know I'll let the world know ;)

    I want update something I previously stated regarding, DNS Made Easy

    Sometime ago, MattW recommended or suggested that I had left them out of my long list of providers found here
    https://theadminzone.com/threads/list-of-reliable-hosts.116081/page-2#post-846050

    I had commended a few times about how I and others had mixed or poor experiences with them in the past. However this was 2 1/2 years ago and things do change so I decided to give them a try, given they now offer a free 30 day trial.

    My trial was going to be expiring this week and so I have purchased their services. I actually have noticed an improvement since add DNS Made Easy.

    I've been using them for around four years I believe, had a couple issues with their Seattle location, then they shut that down and moved me to LA, solid ever since, very affordable to, they meet my needs for hosting.

    I wanted to try out digital ocean's free coupon but it always required a CC so I was apprehensive to try it out.
