    Hosting with them now. Just started up a second (dv) server since our first is hitting capacity.

    Their dedicated servers start at $700 which is way more than what we want to pay right now, so we're forced to split up our sites onto seperate servers.

    The (DV) setup is very nice. LOTS of bandwidth and ssh access. I run a Ventrilo server on one of them for me and my friends.

    So right now we have 1 Extreme DV ($150) and 1 Base DV ($50). Very good support. Very nice transfer limits (Extreme is 2TB/mo)

    The big downside is lack of upgrade path between Extreme DV ($150) and Dedicated server ($700)

    edit: wtf typo

    looks like it's actually $750:

    What also is painful is that while the jump from (DV) extreme to the dedicated is like 10 times increase in processor/ram/harddrive/etc., the transfer is only a 1.5 times increase. I guess this would make sense if you're scaling in the sense of more complicated software... but if the site is straight up scaling from a (DV) you'll probably need to pay a bunch more to get bandwidth to acceptable levels.
