    Hello,

    Hostress.net has been offering services in Dallas, TX and has now expanded to Los Angeles, CA! 

    We have obtained services directly from Quadranet in Los Angeles, CA using their Asia optimized network with native IPv6.

    New services are being provisioned immediately with both IPv4 and IPv6 using Virtualizor as our VPS control panel.

    If anyone would like to move locations please do not hesitate to open a ticket at hostress.net

    Thank you,

    Thomas

    Congrats on the move, but do you think having the word "stress" in your company name is a good idea? Ho stress sounds like something rappers would complain about. :p

    What no CC?  No interest in that wonky home brewed network that horrifies to Asia?  You could have saved a couple of dollars on a sweet E3 like all the slow the slows kids in daycare.

    IPv6 too....   You... evil fellow you....

    Just remember to pay your Virtualizor license :)  Wouldn't want it to expire... And no patching things for license avoidance.  I have to say things you know since you were influenced by these things prior.

    Even a university seems to have prior fallen to the misspelling:

    http://www.must.edu.mo/en/careers/job-openings/training-restaurant/j007

    "The Host or Hostess's basic function is to provide the guests, either on the phone or in person, with information and support in a professional and gracious manner. "

    The name is working.

    YouTube even has more Hostress:

    http://www.youtube.com/results?search_query=%22hostress%22

    644 results.  None of them seem to be about Hoho's or Twinkies either.

    A ho-ho and that cream filling.  Talking about those sweets.

    Lol Thanks for the read and the advice @drmike. I plan to offer services from different companies/data centers around the world. CC has decent networks in some places, however i decided to go directly with Quadranet in LA for the Asia Optimized network and for the IPv6. I feel like it gave me an advantage in that market.

    Thank you,

    Tom

    @tdale I would but I already have a VPS node in LA and I have a couple QuadraNet Infracloud instances there also.

    Can you run the following command on a test VPS and post the output for me? I had a physical server with QuadraNet in LA but the network speeds were slower than my home connection so I had to cancel it. A week later they made the announcement about their network upgrades so I'm curious how much it improved.

    Code:
    wget freevps.us/downloads/bench.sh -O - -o /dev/null|bash

    If you do a traceroute to cachefly.cachefly.com does it still take you to the Miami server instead of the one in the same building as QuadraNet?

    Still not bad, better than the speed tests I saw last month (I wasn't even able to max out my 100Mbps port on most of the test then).

    EDIT: I actually found the speed test from 9/16:

    Download speed from CacheFly: 10.2MB/s

    Download speed from Coloat, Atlanta GA: 2.81MB/s

    Download speed from Softlayer, Dallas, TX: 10.7MB/s

    Download speed from Linode, Tokyo, JP: 4.60MB/s

    Download speed from i3d.net, Rotterdam, NL: 3.81MB/s

    Download speed from Leaseweb, Haarlem, NL: 4.99MB/s

    Download speed from Softlayer, Singapore: 4.00MB/s

    Download speed from Softlayer, Seattle, WA: 9.31MB/s

    Download speed from Softlayer, San Jose, CA: 11.2MB/s

    Download speed from Softlayer, Washington, DC: 6.08MB/s
