Most Reliable Hosting Company Sites in May 2009 – Netcraft

Since I can not get CentOS 5.4 installed on the HP DL380 G3 I am considering using my old freind FreeBSD.  the problem with the HP server is Grub.  the old server BIOS does not let Grub work as a boot loader.  Lilo on the other hand may work.  I will attempt a FreeBSD install with Lilo as te boot loader.

New York Internet, pair Networks and INetU had the most reliable hosting company
sites in May 2009. Each of these sites responded resiliently to Netcraft’s
performance collectors throughout the month, with not a single failed
request.
This is New York Internet’s second
consecutive appearance at the top. Established in 1996, the company’s core
services now include dedicated servers, colocation and virtual web hosting – all
backed with a 99.999% uptime
guarantee.
pair Networks also started off in 1996,
with a $10,000 family loan funding a single employee and a partial T-1 line. The
company has since grown to offer dedicated servers, virtual private servers and
high volume hosting from its own datacentres in Pennsylvania, which use GigE
connections to five diverse backbone networks.
INetU is an enterprise managed hosting
company, also located in Pennsylvania. They stand by their network performance
by offering a 100% uptime service level agreement. Managed services provided by
INetU include MySQL and MS SQL database clusters, Exchange servers,
virtualization and firewalls. Their clients include Fortune 500 companies such
as Microsoft, Intel and Northrop Grumman.
Among May’s top ten hosting company sites, three companies (including New
York Internet and pair Networks) run their sites on FreeBSD. Three other
companies run their sites on Linux, while the remaining two identifiable
operating systems are Windows Server 2003.
