My understanding is the fact that Alabanza hosting costs about $400 monthly in the posts Ive seen here. Yet, after i e-mailed them regarding their prices (since the website does not possess a cost page- the reason why you folks conduct business having a company that does not publish prices is beyond me) and also the reply stated there is a Summer time SPECIAL, only $400 per month, can someone clarify this?
Unless of course it's transformed it's $475.00 monthly, for that newbie, then rises to $800 monthly there after.

There's a very good reason they do not publish prices, when they did then individuals who join alabanza hosts often see exactly what the hosts are having to pay.
My Gosh!!!
800 per month??
Your kidding right?

Just how much bandwidth will it include?

*could possibly get a 1mbps line from VDI onto his package for 500/month..................*

Thanks Mike. You're correct. I might begin with a RAQ3 for small sites and Alabanza for bigger ones. We have (my spouse and i) happen to be selling from several months now, doing rather well, BUT we must leave our crappy host, they're only the worst. Bad service, idiot administrators who only understand how to say "it's policy" once they goof up.

Daniel- it arrives with 50 gigs
Greg- good point, but nonetheless a little shady for me personally.
WOW

50gig? geeze thats 8/gb for that newbie and 16/gb for the years next.

What is their extra bandwidth cost?

Daniel~
Now clearly you can (and most likely *should*) upgrade plans rather than this, but:

Traffic Overage Fee:
$10/GB monthly over server allotment

A little pricey right? In my experience, Alabanza is much like OLM. Undoubtedly not the least expensive, but proficient at the things they're doing. You simply don't need to bother about that single pipe garbage at Alabanza.

Incidentally, I'm speculating this problem continues to be solved, though I e-mailed VDI and not heard back from their store. This is actually the second amount of time in in regards to a year I made the decision to request them something without any reply. I understand you want them Daniel (along with the other VDI'ers), however i just don't share that opinion.
yes their getting far better.

The only pipe problem is going to be resolved within 3 days when MCI arrives to include their DS3 therefore we may have two lines, as well as the Sonet comming later this season

When it comes to billing though I haven't yet see anybody compare to Alabanza. Instantly charges, emails clients, suspends late payers, harasses people for you personally, auto charges and creates new sites - with configurable parameters. A god-send for a moment have serious size subscriber base. We've been happy since our proceed to them (off crappy RaQs - sorry RaQ fans)

I began having a RaQ2 then gone to live in a RaQ3, and so i understand what I am speaking about (kind of). The RaQ's are ideal for a brand new small enterprise. But you receive a couple of large sites with heavy CGI plus they often bog lower.

We switched to Alabanza due to several factors, the very first being their AMAZING user interface and ideal customer care. Since we switched, I went from getting five to ten tech questions daily to at least one to five each week. The servers will also be Extremely fast. Pentium III 550Mhz / 512MB of RAM / SCSI hard disk drives / Weekly full backup copies and daily incrimental backup copies (RaQ's haven't any REAL backup means). Additionally they do All the DNS management, making my existence simpler. As well as the user interface is fully automated and may have accounts setup within 15 mins, without human intervention (though I do not do it).

Remember, you receive that which you purchase. E-distribute them. There is a demo from the sysop user interface. You will be very impressed. I had been.

Alabanza sounds great for a starter company but nonetheless way method to costly. @ that cost they had better be having to pay the folks that answer the telephone 75,000 annually or even more lol.(frontline technicians).

I might be backwards or simply stuck during my way, however i do not pay anybody to behave I'm able to do myself (including programming a control pannel and so on, or support ect

VDI's been great, anytime day or evening I'm able to have somebody @ my server reading through from the console screen in my experience to repair any issues that occur. What they can control pannel wasn't the very best on the planet to begin but after giving the programmer a umm little encouragement 99.5% of bugs are actually gone .

Network uptime continues to be more than 99.85% this month and last. It will likely be better still once MCI will get there inside a couple of days.

I suppose I am just stuck on VDI hu? (you looked @ their prices, quite the great cost structre, 3500 per month for any 8mbps line with hosting for 25 rackmount servers incorporated. pretty good right? 500 per 1mbps next

And so i just approached Alabanza, plus they have only that 1 server config aside from the RAID plan.

Plus they will not upgrade the ram for just about any cost! A year from now! Phone and request!


They stated the main one plan they offer may be the "perfect plan", and they'll not add ram to the server anytime, they have to be the identical to any extent further.


I told steve that 256 ram was area of the perfect plan this past year, and 512 is within your plan this season, just how anout the coming year?

He stated i would need to upgrade towards the RAID plan simply because they won't ever upgrade the ram on any servers.


I told him they might earn more money allowing people upgrade their ram, but he stated then your technicians get confused.
I must accept Daniel on that one. VDI is a superb company. Hey, they'll even allow me to visit the procedures center whenever I wish to

------
Quags
So c'mon then, pay out that VDI URL!


I wish to try them out.
www.vdi.net

in case your searching for 1 or two boxes I'm able to enable you to get the hosting cheaper. But when you'll need a large amount of boxes go for this, But Going direct with VDI is just for Website Hosts, others needs to settle having a intermediary

But I am good I promise *lol*

Get in touch for those who have any VDI questions Greg.

&ltHINT&gt
Should you bargain with Alabanza, you will get their bandwidth prices lower considerably. I can not publish the precise cost here but simply without a doubt it's worth an attempt.
&lt/HINT&gt
I'm confused by these prices.
If Alabanza "resellers" are having to pay $16 per Gig (800/50), just how can they manage to sell hosting so inexpensively?
For instance, below10host charges only $9.95 for approximately 6 Gig of traffic (Ultra Plan).
That might be a loss of revenue of 6x16-9.95 = $86.05 monthly on only one account.
Shall We Be Held lacking the knowledge of this properly?
Or could they be just wishing that almost all customers will not use anything similar to their full allotment of bandwidth?
Simon, they take part in the law of earnings. Your average website uses under 500 Megabytes monthly of bandwidth.

Certainly, if everysite they offered used the max bandwidth, they'd possess some problems.

To support my collegue Daniel here, VDI are dealing with be considered a premier provider. Because the change to level3 we have seen little network down time and I have been more than pleased together.

3 days from the WebHostManager package (open to merchants and box proprietors) may have more features and behave much better than Alabanza's. (I dont do too much, request myself, Daniel or among the team for any demo).
