As for my expierience with it, support was awesome, setting up virtualmin and webmin for me for free. WordPress and MySQL are blisteringly fast and at their prices WHY THE HELL ARE PEOPLE BUYING SHARED HOSTING?!?!?!, except for support of course.. but for most people who just want a self hosted blog this is a super scalable solution for peanuts!, this is the 5th host I have tried in some 14 years and easily the fastest + best value **RECOMMENDED** If you are in the market for shared linux hosting, you can get all you are likely to need from as little as $2 a month (seriously… it’s as good as free at that price), a 1GB RAM, 2 core CPU,  1 TB transfer VPS will set you back a whopping $4 a month.. less than a couple of cups of crap coffee, or one “good” one.
