Richard Chard

I have used servers long enough for now. One of my projects requires a lot of bandwidth and fast server and that’s why I decided to give them a go. So far I have no downtime and fast server. So I got what I have been looking for. I haven’t contacted their support so often, but when I did - I got help from them pretty fast. I believe I pay them honest price.Now thinking of moving other projects to them
