    Unmanaged and managed services

    Seeing that all packages come with a fully managed service and that this service is applicable only to packages with a control panel, I suggest offering a package for unmanaged accounts for users who don't make use of a control panel. Thanks.

    SPAM protection

    +1 on this This is a reasonable suggestion. Spam filtering uses up alot of memory and processing power on VPS accounts, especially the lower end ones. It would make sense to "outsource" spam filtering to a machine/s adapted specifically for this process. In addition to this, may I suggest a...

    European Datacentre
