I've had a VPS from amazon up and running for a few months, but I simply couldn't get my head around their billing tariffs. I am sure they are great and really flexible, but they weren't working out as a good deal for me.
(on average I was paying $75 a month). On top of that, on Friday, I was having trouble logging in (probably my own fault).
So I finally got around to switching provider.
and as http://bitfolk.com/ are well known to the UK floss community as a sponsor of http://oggcamp.org/ , and patronised by the internet's very own "Alan (popey) Pope".
Bitfolk have been an absolute joy to deal with, I had my server up and running within a couple of hours of my enquiry.
I have now moved both www.openmolar.com and www.rowinggolfer.org onto that server and they seem fast and stable.
How much for this incredible service? Under 20% of the cost of the amazon box (which is now cancelled), and easy to understand.
Thanks Bitfolk, and a 5 star rating from yours truly.
