Yes, I can second that. I'm satisfied with their work. I was kind of
funny though back then in the last year as I started hosting with them.
At that point they didn't offer Debian as OS on the machines for
renting. I need to help the personnel through the basic installation
until network and ssh was in place so I could manage the machine on
my own. But they did the additional work for the same money, so that
was fine for me. Obviously there were enough interest for Debian,
they offer it now for the rented machines.
