Their prices are good, and if you're doing web-only, its great...
but they're in bad ip space. real bad ip space. so if you need to
send any email , you're completely screwed.
most blacklists have their whole network blocked, and have no desire
to change anything.
every major isp blocked the datacenter i was in, as did most OSS
systems. i couldn't send any bounceback emails for website
registration and I couldn't do any smtp mailings for personal use.
personally, I would NEVER use a managed system. self-managed +
powercycle should be all you need. do you really want to give
someone else root on your machines ?
