Francisco, your plan needs warrant a dedicated server. Shut up and stop being a cheep bastard. Using those resources will just drag the server down to a slug for everyone. I am not affiliated with mega hosters but am a person in the industry. Just go elsewhere, I am sure they don't want to listen to douche bags like you anyway. Go to host gator or something, they will just shut you down before even talking to you if your site uses too much resources.

I am on the Mega Plan 1 and at first the plan was great. My site started growing and I contacted them about new plans upgrades which they told me were in the works. 1gb space 40gb bandwidth was pathetic and the upgrades were ridiculously priced. I contacted them again today and this is what I got as a response.
"we aren't planning on redoing pricing/packages. Your site specifically needed more space when we wrote you. Quite honestly the amount of processing power required to convert your mp3's is fairly significant, so our pricing wouldn't be changing. We certainly understand if you feel you can get a better deal elsewhere - we don't compete just on price. "
They should of told me this from the get go so I could of moved on!

Overview

About Mega Hosters

Mega Hosters Inc. began as a web design company back in late 1999 under the name Neuro Nitrate Web Design (neuronitrate.com). As our design clients usually needed web hosting our natural progression was in to the business. We started with a mere 5 servers and have grown vastly ever since. In January of 2002 we started the Mega Hosters brand and moved our focus more towards Web Hosting and Serving our clients needs to the highest industry level. It was not uncommon to hear "You guys went beyond what I expected!" and "My last host would never have done that for me." from clients of ours who needed our assistance with anything from transferring over their new account or getting obscure support for their existing account. We continue to grow daily and strive to make your experience with us the best it can be.

Is Mega Hosters Inc. A Hosting Reseller?

Mega Hosters Inc. is NOT a reseller of web hosting services, we are a mid sized corporation operating our own equipment and services. Resellers are constantly asking if they can resell our services, this will be an option in the near future but for now we wish to not resell our services. We own all of our equipment and manage our own space in a very large data center. This means that there is no "middle man" between us and your website's. Unfortunately over 80% of hosting companies out there are simply reselling another "big" hosts services too you. Avoid Reseller Web Hosting Companies, you will have nothing but problems.

NETWORK
The Mega Hosters world-class network has been designed to support and enhance your mission-critical e-business applications. We guarantee 99.99% uptime Internet access, and provide flexible and friendly customer support services.

We provide you with the fastest, most direct network connections through an internal network that is connected directly to the major Internet backbones.

Our 100% Cisco powered internal network prioritizes high performance and redundancy. State of the art, fault tolerant software utilizes Hot Standby Router Protocol (HSRP), guaranteeing that in the event that a router or router port fails, the hot standby router will take over within a maximum of 40 seconds. Our self-healing network architecture virtually eliminates a single point of failure. In addition to our own backbone, we also purchase backup transit from multiple providers in multiple locations to ensure that your data will arrive via the shortest possible routes. Because of our backup transit and the many international peers, our network maintains the shortest routes for sending your data all over the world. On an ongoing basis, we are negotiating with the top fiber carriers for new routes, additional backup transit providers, and we are signing on new peering relationships.

Mega Hosters high performance and redundant backbone network connects all of our Internet Data Centres using multiple high-speed OCn3 lines. With the ever-growing number of latency-sensitive applications such as Voice Over IP, Video Streaming and Conferencing, and a multitude of other client server applications, route diversity is a key component in ensuring Internet connectivity is fast and always available. Mega Hosters national backbone is ranked among the top in the nation. Connections ranging from OC3s (155Mbps) to gigE (1,000Mbps) connect several major exchange points, (including MAE-West in San Jose, CA; PAIX in Palo Alto, CA; AADS in Chicago, IL; NYIIX in New York, NY; and MAE-East in Vienna, VA) forming rings around the nation.

Mega Hosters switched network utilizes the Border Gateway Protocol Version 4 (BGP4) over Cisco 12000 series GSR routers. We always update the router's IOS after we have stress tested the latest IOS on a non-critical router, to make sure it is very stable. The switch that your equipment will ultimately be connected to is connected back to a core router via fiber.

At Mega Hosters, we strive to be constantly expanding our network in ways that further enhance performance for our customers. For example, we are the only network that has a direct connection between Seattle and Vancouver, via our private clear channel link.

Our network uses Private Peering Connections (PPC's) which route through Vancouver, Seattle, Toronto, Montreal, Chicago, New York, Palo Alto California, Fremont California, San Jose California, and Vienna Virgina thus giving us a expansive redundant network.
