I recently had my production server fail randomly at a data center twice in one evening with no reason.
Wanted sleep that night, and only had 10 websites on that server, with DNS at Zerigo (1 min TTL.) I moved them over to a backup BuyVM node I had on standby, knowing with 60+ days of testing w/ constant uptime I.d be fine.
Never looked back. Upgraded the VPS to your largest plan, and I can sleep fine at night.
I.ve worked at data centers, been in the hosting industry for 8 years and have over 25 VPS servers right now.
The first company / backup server I rushed to for my main client.s production sites was BuyVM.
It just makes sense. Thanks for everything.
