    I'm about to move IWP there, and that runs like a dogs breakfast on anything VentraIP related. So i'll find out pretty fast.

    i had concerns when i was moving ALL my domains/clients to netvirtue and all i did was "kept asking" , i can tell you they just "kept answering" , they are REALLY good, when they make a mistake they actually say they did !!!! , when i have found a problem they have thanked me for finding it, their customer service is 400% IMO.
    note: after aussie hours you do get shifted to an americam call centre, but if you phone or ticket in hours you get VERY fast response AND you are kept up to date on progress.

    i can't fault them

    ( note: i couldn't fault hostG until i told them i was leaving ! )

    First impressions are the support is good and responsive.

    Hosting seems slow in the back end. Just removing an alias sat there for 30 secs before completing. Just migrated my IWP panel over. Updated the DNS. Will see tomorrow how that performs.

    Full disclosure, I don't work at NetVirtue and never have.

    I do however have 9 VPS's at NV and they don't re-sell Synergy VPS's

    They have all of their own racks, hardware and networking / redundancy infrastructure in Syd / Mel as mentioned previously.

    I know from personal reasons that they have spent up big $$$ to have extremely reliable infrastructure and it shows.

    Have you tried specialized hosts for the software? They can often be well priced and full optimized for what you are running.

    There are a couple of different ads running at the moment. Glad that one caught your attention though!

    i'm still very happy with NV, i did have to move a clients sites (4) off because of some weird email conflict which we couldn't figure out, once we moved it stopped?? still don't know why but i get less support calls from that client which was the ONLY one with the issue. i STRONGLY believe it was some setting in the clients computer we couldn't find.

    i love backup buddy but it struggles repeatedly with their litespeed servers, it works and then it doesn't, it works but then the backup although says its good is actually missing small pieces and transferring sites fail, general the database fail on WP sites which is a major issue.

    If you have enough sites to host, do yourself a favour and move over to a VPS. Then you can do your own full WHM backups to an external source - like a self-hosted FTP server - this is what I've done in the past and it works really well.
