    Post How good is burst.net


    Hello

    I was thinking of enrolling for the reseller program at burst.net.

    I just wanted to know, is it any good? Because the amount they charge is incredibly low ($5.95 for a 512 MB Linux VPS)

    Regards,
    Arvind.

    You should Google search Burst.net reviews, as there should be quite a few. I would also suggest searching on WebHostingTalk.com

    BurstNET has a nice network, but imho they are slow when it comes to setup sometimes taking up to a week. As Clayton suggested try searching for some reviews, you'll find many...

    the reviews are ok though... maybe they are starting out that's why the price is low. be sure the check out other sites/ hosts also and keep your options open.

    They've been around for around 15+ years actually, far from just starting out.

    As said by others do your homework by searching the reviews about them. You can try contacting them directly ask them your queries and see how they responds to your queries and analyze it yourself. I think by that way you'll have an idea about them.

    They have had their rough years, and you will find many bad reviews. I used to hate them back in the day. And yes, their setup times can be slow.

    That said, I have been using them again the last year for a project I needed cheap servers for, and so far I am very happy with them. Can't be what you get for the price, and I have had no hardware or network issues.

    It depends on what you're using them for and how much management/support you need.
