I like FutureQuest so much that even though my reply isn't necessary because of all the others, I can't not reply to your question
Futurequest is terrific
A solid 3.98 on a 4.0 scale
Since everything has been 100% positive so far, let me try really hard to think of anything bad, but these are a stretch:
1.) Disk space is more expensive here than elsewhere, and less is included in the packages compared to other hosts on a dollar by dollar basis. But I don't believe this is really a fair comparison since FQ is not in their league in terms of server performance and reliability, which are worth a few extra dollars if you need more space.
2.) I don't use MySQL yet, but I read that you can't use MySQL with an IRM - you have to have a full package for that. Of course, the majority of hosts don't have IRM's at all, and they are a huge benefit in terms of cost savings while developing new domain names.
OK - that's all I can think of. Now, I'll try to keep the positives brief and not too sappy... but I could go on for pages on all the great things about FQ.
The FQ servers are EXCELLENT. If you use Perl / CGI scripts, you'll never be able to use another host again after seeing how well everything "just works" here the first time.
I used Netwhistle and one other website monitoring service before signing up with Futurequest. I was accustomed to getting an error or two per week, but since I've been with Futurequest I almost forgot I signed up with the services. It's nice to go months without a single error reported!
Support could not possibly be better. My last IRO took 15 minutes to setup (ordered after midnight I believe), and my last full package took under 10! Email and forum support go well beyond the call of duty, always including both the concise and accurate answer, and even better, the full account so you are better educated - I really enjoy the information I learn by being here.
The control panel is very simple, efficient, and useful without any extra junk. I like it much better than alabanza's.
I could go on and on - the short answer is that I have no trouble personally guaranteeing FQ's wonderful servers and service to friends. I now have six accounts here, and in researching before the fact and in my 5 months being here, I have never read or heard a single negative review or comment about FutureQuest.
