Tags: , , , Date/Time: November 17, 2020 @ 12:10 pm, by raindog308

Mad Genius has returned!  We saw them back in July, after a loooong absence (way back to 2009!).  They’re hosting in Chicago and are bringing us some KVM plans.

I always look at providers’ web sites when posting offers and it’s refreshing to see someone who

  • is not using the same ThemeForest template as everyone else
  • has put some thought into their company name and branding
  • has a cool mascot (OK, maybe I just like MadGenius’s scientist)

They’re based out of Minneapolis and has been in business longer than some LEB readers have been alive (since 1998 – they offered dial-up at one time!)  They offer a full range of services, including shared, VPS, reseller, dedicated, and colo, and can do managed services for you as well.

In their own words:

“Madgenius.com, is a locally owned and operated full service hosting provider in the Minneapolis area that has been in business since 1998. We are dedicated to providing web hosting, VPS, dedicated servers, networking and managed Internet services at the right price to residents and businesses.

They’re a registered business in Minnesota USA: File Number 3645726-2.

Their AUP and Privacy Policy are both available on their website for review and their WHOIS is public.

Accepted payment methods: Bitcoin, Credit Card, PayPal, Bank Transfer
