    They seem reliable to me,
    it would have been nice to have less space and more RAM or a burstable RAM option

  5. Well, I took advantage of this offer today. The vpn was setup within minutes. The double disk space was not intially there, but I put in a support ticket and it was fixed in minutes. everything seems to be working pretty good so far.

  12. We are doing a lot of internal restructuring, and it is taking greatly longer then expected.

    No worries, we are not going anywhere, I assure you.

  13. @Douglas — looks like the “internal restructuring” means that you guys were on the market? It appears that ZoomVPS has been sold to BoostHosting in Australia.
