Seems to be a scam of some sort. I verified with credit card, but as soon as I created the account and logged in it said "This account has been disabled." and I could not do anything.

About Open Hosting

Why OHI?

Open Hosting’s cloud hosting servers offer the full power and control of a traditional dedicated server, while providing the unmatched combination of instant flexibility, ease of use, and cost efficiency.

Our virtual server farm is built using Linux KVM (Kernel Based Machine) – the advanced virtualization platform built into mainline Linux. KVM offers virtual server that are entirely independent of others on our network and are fully-configurable to your specific needs, unlike hosting solutions using only OS-level containers such as Virtuozzo, VMware, and Parallels.

OHI virtual servers are designed, configured and supported for all forms of web hosting, unlike Amazon EC2 which is a general purpose solution not well-tailored for web hosting, or Google App Engine which is limited to Python applications running in their proprietary environment. Read more about our features.

Finally, OHI virtual hosting servers are physically located in our state-of-the art suburban Washington, DC and Miami, FL data centers, offering fast, direct network links and data storage. Learn more about our data centers by clicking here.

Why pay for more than you use for hosting? We wouldn’t.

You only pay for the CPU, hard disk and bandwidth that you use, making our consumption-based pricing logical and competitive. It just makes more financial sense.

Linux KVM Cloud Hosting
What is Linux KVM?

KVM stands for Kernel-based Virtual Machine and is a module that allows virtual machines to run under a Linux host. It takes advantage of special instructions in modern processors to provide near-native performance in a fully virtualized environment. KVM is a relatively new, but incredibly stable technology that is included within the mainline Linux kernel. It is, in many ways, similar to Xen, although KVM regularly outperforms it. KVM offers the same experience as a real physical server, while providing customers with the opportunity to run their own custom Linux kernel and modules.
Why Open Hosting chose KVM virtualization?

Before selecting Linux KVM, our engineering team evaluated VMWare, Parallels, and Xen, three of the leading virtualization platforms providing similar capabilities to KVM, and selected KVM as the best architecture for virtualization on modern processors with fast hardware virtualization support (VT-x and NPT on Intel or AMD-V and EPT on AMD).
Hypervisor architecture and device drivers

Linux KVM is a hypervisor built into mainline Linux, using the full-range of hardware virtualization support, and directly using the regular Linux scheduler and I/O device drivers.
VMWare and XEN run external hypervisors, whereas Linux KVM runs a hardware-based hypervisor.

Open Hosting believes the KVM architecture is superior to both Xen and VMWare – the mainline Linux scheduler and device drivers are extremely well designed, widely deployed, professionally maintained, and thoroughly tested, to a level, likely, well above what a single company could achieve on either their own proprietary codebase or a locally maintained fork of Linux.

OHI Cloud Infrastructure
Technology Platform

Open Hosting Cloud servers run on sophisticated server farms, located in our fully-independent, premier-class data centers. Our engineers continually monitor, service, and upgrade the underlying infrastructure, providing you with high performance, availability and scalability. Each Open Hosting Cloud infrastructure layer has been carefully designed and configured to provide optimum server performance.

OHI Cloud servers use high-end, multi-processor servers, fitted with dual CPU, quad-core Dell PowerEdge R610 servers clustered – for redundancy, load balancing and automatic fail-over – using RAID 10 to keep your data safe and your virtual server running, even in the (unlikely) case of hard disk failure. Additionally, all OHI host machines are outfitted with mirrored disks.

I couldn't even do a free trial for more than an hour to test their service before an admin deleted it all and disabled my account. I regret entering my credit card information for a verification since this company is horrid. No response from their email.
