Damn, I have way cheaper prices and I've got a $4k server (that I actually own) and better bandwidth.

yeah $13USD is close to $20CDN and for that price I can get quite a bit more... I'm getting your first plan for *half* that price ($10CDN).

:)

The only thing that can offset higher hosting prices is phenomenal customer service and server reliability.

yeah you need to lower them prices a little there buddy.

Ive always concidered Guardian to have average prices, if you can go lower then them by a couple bucks you would have some extremely competitive rates going.

Changed the prices, I'm adding a server-wide SSL account for use by anyone on the Plan #3 and will also install GnuPGP later today for secure form submission.

Quik, how do you have it setup?

How I'm proceeding currently is, because Ensim requires IP based to do SSL, is I bought a generic domain (securehosting.org) and I'm gonna somehow (have a post in the RS forums currently) setup a symlink so that mainwebsite_secure goes to like securehosting.org/username and then if you need to access your secure files you just goto https://securehostin...ername/file.php

Another cool thing I installed today was MailScanner and Spam Assasin, took over an hour to do it, but it'll stop spam and viruses at the front door instead of at your mailbox.
