    Your best / worst Dedicated Providers?

    So far I've been with about 5 companies over the years, and here is my list:

    Best two:
    Just Edge
    HoneLive

    Worst two:
    Burst NET
    Single Hop (the absolute worst provider I've been with)

    and if you want to know why Single Hop is the worst, check it out here:

    I have to 2nd Burst NET being the worst. I had a Rep over there setup a reseller account for me and through the entire process she was aware of my plans to sell hosting on 2 and the third was for the hosting site and a few other sites of mine. After around 2 months my bills almost doubled and when asked why they said that resellers cannot get a server at a discount and use them for personal use.

    Now tech support during these 2 months was worthless ended up with a tech in Iowa who managed to keep the servers running @ $40 an hour when I needed to use him. As for hardware issues took 3 days to get a ram replaced and during the time I was there the servers all 3 were down a total of almost 2 weeks. Not counting the 4 days it took to get them setup when I signed up.

    Would not even recommend Burst to my competitors they are the worst hands down for me.

    Yeah I ended up hiring an outsourcing company to help me keep my server afloat.

    Right now I'm with FDC and have Webby Cart helping me while I work and such. I love my server right now, but I still wish I had my Litespeed though, I sorta miss it (even though I couldn't do any media stuff on it )

    re: singlehop above, I have had a few servers with them, and still have one - not great by any standard, but if they are the worst you have used holy shit welcome to the internet!

    I also have one with honelive, and its a one man show so its funny you place that in your "best", but again its acceptable.

    My best:
    Softlayer

    My worst:
    10tb.com (a softlayer reseller!)
    managed.com

    It's in my best because he fully managed my server along with redoing the entire network. I've had zero downtime during that 6 months. I probably drove him away from fully management
