    By far one of the best providers I have had to deal with is Catalysthost under the helm of Ryan Arp. They are one of the providers that you setup your server, and then forget about. I rarely have had any issues with any server in the past 2+ years. I of course have the occasional outage, but that is where they really shine. In these very few outages I contact support, and within a few moments reply they are already working to resolve the issue. One of the very few providers that I know that are proactive on there deployment and have proper alerting to when problems arise.

    I would highly suggest these lovely gents any day of the week, and they are worth your time and money to get to know them. I give them a 5/5!

    Usage:
    I currently use these servers for a gaming community I run, as well as a storage server that holds a collection of files and backups from days previous.
