I was looking around one night about 4 years ago for a host with dedicated IP numbers. Never did I know I would luck out with a host where I could get three dedicated IP numbers and a decent amount of web space and bandwidth for what was needed. Sure there are hosts out there where you can buy unlimited space and bandwidth. But I have seen them come and go, mostly go. This is my fourth time renewing with Boen, this time I renewed for the two year deal which will be over 6 years when it comes time to renewing again. I am the CEO of my company and it is comforting to know I can sleep well at night knowing the clients I am providing services to can contact me anytime knowing the message will get to me. And knowing my web services are running without a hitch. Anytime I need Boens help he is always there. I have a team of designers, there have been times I have asked Boen for assistance.

Been using risingnet since 2006. Joined because they offered IRC hosting and had cheap virtual private servers. I’ve been using them ever since. Only had a few down times in 4 years, 3 I can recall. 2 where scheduled, 1 unexpected but nothing more then a few hours. Boen is truly the man when it comes to support. He has helped me update and config my server for the full 4 years. If you’re looking into getting a VPS, give them a shot. I only wish they had more flexible upgrade packages.
