Some years ago, and after some super poor performance from the shared hosting I was using back then, I started considering purchasing a VPS to move my sites to.
Around the same time, I had to host some shoutcast servers, so buying a managed VPS with cPanel in order to host everything there seemed like a sensible and cheap option.Back then, with absolutely no experience on this subject, finding a suitable managed VPS for both my sites and shoutcast server was nearly impossible. So, I asked for suggestions on a local forum, and someone recommended HostV. Their prices, and especially the unmetered traffic seemed almost too good to be true. But since someone I kinda knew had recommended them, and judging from the way they responded to all my presales questions, I decided to give them a shot, and buy a VPS package (OpenVZ, unclear CPU specs, 512 guaranteed ram, 768 burst, 50gigs storage, unmetered traffic).
This is the (painful) story of my experiences with HostV.
