How can we offer such a good deal?
- First of all, we are a true wholesale hosting provider.
Most hosting sellers on the web are not.
- Second, most of our customers run small businesses or
personal websites, which don't use much disk space or bandwidth
on our servers. As a result, even our most demanding business
clients are able to save money by signing up for the same
package as everyone else.
- Third, we don't spend a lot of money running a fancy website,
or on advertising. We rely primarily on word-of-mouth advertising,
which doesn't cost us anything (we just have to offer a
product that people want to tell their friends about).

time, effort, etc... lost due to this unfortunate event. Furthermore,
if your files are lost, we will attempt to restore them as
a gesture of good faith, but make no promises what so ever
about whether the files will be brought back successfully
or not. Again, back ups are the client's responsibility.
