I've decided to write a review about 5ITE Hosting Solutions - Home, i've been using them since the past 1 and half months now and they have been undoubtly the best managed vps provider i have used in a while.
I had a chat with one of there support staff(Can't remember name), they were very nice and guided me through the process of setting the VPS to my requirements such as installing LAMP and other things i needed. Both the vps's were setup instantly after i had paid and my request of custom setup(long list of things like LAMP,phpMyAdmin etc.) was done within 24hours.
I currently have 2 vps's there, one is for my personal/production sites which i purchased recently which is the "Storm" package with cPanel/WHM after i loved there "Entry" package, which i used to test there support and server quality. Another reason why i love them is that they allow IRC & Adult content to be hosted, which is everything i need for my sites to be up. I havn't seen much hosts which allow both and i respect them for it.
I now use the first vps i bought(Entry) for development and testing purposes. I have ran a Unix benchmark for NB'ers to see the quality of the vps.
