you have my deepest commisserations on having a fasthosts reseller account – but there's no need to take it out on everyone else. yes, another deeply satisfied ex-fasthosts reseller here!

some of the big usa based hosting companies have been operating for years and running at a loss every year – which is why they keep merging and getting ever larger hoping economies of scale will bail them out of their financial mess.
