All providers should listen to the input on this thread. No matter what stage / age they are. Clearly missing a bunch of stuff and lacking proper disclosure and image, your brand will suffer.I have a question for providers: why are you not doing the things @DomainBop and I suggest? It may be a deliberate business decision - for example if your target market is geeks who want somewhere to test stuff, or backup servers, or for hobby stuff.
A lot of good providers do not do not provide much information. I just had a look at the Ramnode, BuyVM and Secure Dragon sites - I think there is a consensus here that they are all good?. None comes anywhere near the level of disclosure we suggest. They seem to have no problem acquiring clients, so we should we conclude that their strategy (i.e. selling to people like me rather than people like my clients) is a good one and DomainBop and I are either wrong, or advocating just one of many possible strategies?
What @graeme in particular did you find with Ramnode, BuyVM and Secure Dragon did not meet @DomainBop 's disclosure level? Honest question there and perhaps each provider can learn and realize what is 'deficient' from a buyer who is not in these communities and stumbles into their site solely.
