I work for a small web developing company, in Oxford, as a C# / PHP developer. I'm currently working with a client who has websites with Datagate already. It was requested that their new site is hosted with Datagate, fine - not a problem with that.

However, Drupal site is rather large and quite complex, so I needed a Linux VPS. I needed a VPS so that I could set up specific FTP accounts, specific permissions, private sections, secure sections, etc. I could list at least 10 more reasons why...

Unfortunately, when asking for root or even admin access, I was told "You already uploaded files with FTP protocol... You don't need admin access to server. It would just some mess without any gain." to which I asked why?

After a few further emails (which I polite may I add) mainly about a db error which I don't care about, this was final one (the '>' prefixed lines is my previous email):

on-IDLE, DataGate Partner for CMS, Hosting - Design and technology service provider on-IDLE ( announced this week that it will release a low-end content management system (CMS), partnering with ISP and hosting company DataGate ( to deliver the XML-driven solution combined with server space and hosting.

on-IDLE says the partnership with DataGate opens up its services to more customers that are beginning to adopt XML and Web service technology in order to power Internet solutions. The new service has officially gone live at DataGate.

The partnership, says on-IDLE, will allow the company to deliver development based on its in-house o-iCORE XML framework. The new solutions, says the company will benefit developers and ISPs, eliminating uploading and maintenance problems traditionally encountered during development.

"We find that most ISPs cannot offer the database and server root access support necessary to run XML-based content management systems," says Ane-Mari du Toit, co-founder and sales [search all news]

I've worked with Datagate for around two years and always had my suspicions they weren't the best. I'm a Linux user myself and have been concerned that their server has been going down and with their backup service.

After months of arguing, we finally got root access to our own server, which should've been provided at the start, and found out that every night, during the backup, there was a problem with the network card. This turned out to be due to the age of the Linux Kernel they're using.

I told them about the kernel problem and we were told 'I wouldn't worry that much about this to be honest. You don't have "3 year old kernel" '... despite it being released in 2009.

I then asked if our backups were ever verified, and I was told they're backed up over Samba, which raises all kinds of questions over file permissions, and that these backups are never tested, despite us paying for them.
