Host where the staff takes pride in making customers happy

No support needed, I just wanted to thank your company and expert staff for such a wonderful hosting solution. I've always had a shared host with some other company and have always had nothing but problems, headaches, and frustration. Customer support and uptime were at an all time worst when I was refered to rimuhosting by a friend. Since then I have had nothing a wonderful experiance. I didn't need to know anything about owning my first vps as there was always someone standing by to answer my questions. Your staff even went as far as creating an AOL Instant messenger username to speak to me one on one to sort out my issues and get my site up and running. Thank you for such an awesome experiance and although the prices were slightly higher than the other ones I had researched, even though you offered me a slight bump in space and memory, I know understand that I am paying for top level customer service at its best which I have never seen with any other host. I'll be sure to place a 'hosted by' link on my site.

Thu, 11 Jul 2024 01:18 AM UTC: To restore services, we are preparing replacement switches for two cabinets (4.1.6034 and 4.1.1029). And moving servers from 4.1.6035 to an alternate cabinet.

Thu, 11 Jul 2024 00:30 AM UTC: Several switches have failed after the power issue. We are working on a plan to replace those from our spares and may also move some affected servers to working cabinets.

Wed, 10 Jul 2024 23:57 PM UTC: We are continuing to work with remote hands to resolve issues with several unresponsive switches. We have identified spare devices in the event replacments are needed.

Wed, 10 Jul 2024 20:29 PM UTC: We have been advised there was an issue with a transformer. Power was failed over to permit maintenance, but several cabinets have become inaccessible despite redundant feeds to those. We are working with remote hands to resolve.
