I love them! They have great speeds, great reliablity, and the only downtimes are to upgrade and make it even better!

There are other good companies out there... but this one definately gets my vote.

They have moved to coercion tactics - Review by Mark submitted on March 28, 2003
Customer's web site: cybergolftours.com
Length of time hosted by this company: 1 month - 3 months
Date when last hosted by this company (as of March 28, 2003): Less than 3 months ago
Plan used: V100
Customer service rating: 1 out of 10

Cost rating: 1 out of 10
Overall rating: 1 out of 10
I used to recommend this host highly and have referred many people there.

Then, out of the blue, while my site was running along at a pace consistent with how it had been running continuously for two months without complaint from VO, the account was suspended WITHOUT notice.  My users were cut off ("all" 200 of them) knowingly by VO without giving me any opportunity to prevent it before the fact.

I was and had always been well within all resource limits for my shared account.  The reasons given were entirely based on "hits" (without any demonstrated knowledge that this is an unfair and less than accurate way to measure resource usage).  Even "hits" were not out of the realm of reason (they were working out to about 1 million per month, not a lot considering, even if you assume the count is accurate, every single image and other item on a page counts as a hit).

My site was turned back on and no apology has been offered by VO. 

It is obvious from their actions (and follow-up correspondence) that their strategy is to continue to enjoy the revenue from shared accounts but for any site with even a reasonable amount of traffic to use coercion tactics to force them into a VPS account (5 times as expensive) that they just don't need.

They have become like a bank.  They like the revenue from smaller accounts, but they don't mind treating such individual customers like dirt.

No time for a long review.  Sorry.

1.  Best customer service.  Very friendly, on time.  Work with you and being reasonable.

2.  Minimum downtime.  Very fast connections.

3.  The plan is not the cheapest on the market, but it's not bad.

Great host, no downtime, never even needed support here so I have no idea of the quality of it.  Speed is great and price is even better.  A definate go if you are into unix/linux servers.
