I've been a customer for two years. If you take the time to talk to them and formulate your specific needs, they will listen and address your issues.

I had some specific needs and they were very open and helpful. Once, I had troubles getting support but when I emailed them another time, they fixed my minor problem right away. It is recommended for users looking for reliability, and if you speak a bit of *nix, you can get a great package. Control panel is basic but server speed, features and price are good.

Overview

About csoft.net

Csoft.net Hosting, Inc - High-Availability Hosting

The Csoft.net hosting company has been providing a secure, reliable and affordable hosting service since 1995. Our servers are located in state-of-the-art data centers with Tier 1 connectivity (notably to AS701).

With most of our competitors offering inflexible hosting packages with traffic limits, lack of redundancy and oversold storage space, we focus instead on high performance, proactive security and enterprise-grade reliability. We also differ from traditional hosting services by providing every customer with multiple redundant servers and a true 100% uptime guarantee.

Our technical support service is available 7 days a week, year-round. Competent system administrators and programmers are there to fix the bugs, answer your questions and implement your suggestions. Csoft.net has initiated and is sponsoring a number of free open-source software projects, which were developed much in the same way that our hosting service was built: through continual improvement over the years, based on technical merit and driven by user feedback.

Included in all packages

Hosting on multiple redundant servers running OpenBSD, FreeBSD, NetBSD or Linux
A 100% uptime guarantee

Unsure what changes the company has gone through, but the service (technical on the hosting and support for contacting) became very bad very quick. Our account type was for corporate hosting and worked very well for half a year. Without warning, the IP for our account was switched and many files were lost. In an effort to rebuild, we contact them about installing Rail gems. They refused to install some specific gems that had been previously installed and would not explain how the files were lost or the IP was switched. When they stopped answering emails, we canceled and moved from the server. Despite a lacking control panel, the service was very good and stable up until that point and we had been very happy. It was a disappointment and major setback to lose so much and necessitate a switch in providers.
