VPS.NET: My Review

As I am sure you know, Tweaked for your Pleasure is hosted on a few nodes at vps.net. While it is sad to say that originally my experiences at VPS.NET was okay, I ended up leaving them due to their SAN issues.

My current setup with vps.net is running the latest CentOS image (others you can use such as Debian) and their free licence for ISPManager.
