Stay as far away from DotBlock as possible unless you like intrusion. "large spikes in bandwidth" are enough to warrant looking through your log files and data. Very general polices and terms of service allow for investigations of accounts for potential malicious activity.

Affiliate marketing is a type of performance based marketing in which a business, or merchant, pays you, the affiliate, for each conversion of a specified goal based on your own marketing efforts. These goals can vary; however, are typically the completion of a sale or a lead.

At DotBlock we are always looking to push the boundaries of what we can offer our customers. It is in that vein that we are happy to announce that one of our newest services has entered the beta stage of production. We're excited to introduce to you our new Distributed VPS service.

Nobody likes to wait for a webpage to load and web designers work tirelessly to cut down the load times of their websites. With our new Distributed VPS offering you can cut the load time of your website while reducing the impact that multiple simultaneous visitors can have on your VPS. By linking your content across our global distributed network we can determine the delivery server closest to your site's visitors and serve up your content to them more quickly and efficiently.

To start using the Distributed VPS beta program simply log into your online account and click 'Manage Servers' at the top of the page. You will see a banner for the beta program with a link to the Distributed VPS section. Select the #VPS you'd like to use and click the button labeled, 'Enable CDN'. Your VPS will be activated with the beta program and you will be able to manage the domains you'd like to use with our global network.

The beta program is open to all of our customers. Give it a try and let us know what you think!

After deploying a host on Amazon EC2, I realized it was just to expensive to run and manage for my size business.  After doing some research I found dotblock.  They hit a sweet spot for my needs - for around $75.00 I get my own SSD server with WHM.  While the offering is not "fully managed", they have never once refused a request to make any changes on my server.  They are in upstate NY - real sharp technical support staff.  I couldn't be happier.  This is a true Boutique host at an affordable rate.  You can see the speed of my host on this Drupal site http://www.digitalworkhorse.com/

VPS Hosting, Windows VPS Hosting, Linux VPS by DotBlock
Introduction
We are a VPS/Cloud hosting provider that specializes in providing pre-configured installations of various web applications to our users. 

Website: DotBlock

Customization

One of the best features that DotBlock offers is the level of customization with cloud VPS. DotBlock uses KVM-based virtualization technology, which allows for some really amazing features such as redundancy, on-the-fly scaling and the option of creating custom stacks. After all, you just cannot go wrong with 99.99% uptime guarantee and full hardware-based redundancy. DotBlock offers all of these features and that too with a reasonable pricing policy.

Unmetered Bandwidth

With no metering of bandwidth, you enjoy premium speeds on any plan that you purchase at DotBlock.com.

Operating Systems

DotBlock offers a choice of more than forty different operating systems to choose from. Whether you prefer a Microsoft Windows-based server or one based on Linux, you can have the OS of your choice to run your website on. If you need a Windows-based server, you can choose either a Windows 2003 VPS or the newer Windows 2008 VPS. For Linux-based servers, you have a wide range of operating systems to choose from, including CentOS, Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian, Gentoo, Linux Mint, and SuSE. Another great option is FreeBSD, which is a UNIX-based OS.

Choice of Architecture

With so many operating systems available and with virtualization technology running the show, DotBlock provides you with the choice to run your site on either a 32-bit architecture or a 64-bit one, varying with your needs. While most operating systems today are 64 bits-based, DotBlock offers 32-bit versions of CentOS, Fedora, Slackware and Windows 2003 R2.

RAID-10 Solid State Drive (SSD VPS)

DotBlock offers all its features based on RAID 10 Technology (Redundant Array of Independent Disks), and Solid State Drives. Solid State Drives (SSD), or flash drives, unlike the regular HDDs, have no moving parts and hence are incredibly fast. With hybrid SSDs employed, the RAID 10 set-ups can have huge caches of up to 4GB in size, which is pretty high when compared to the 64MB cache size of traditional HDDs.

Dedicated IP Address

DotBlock offers dedicated IP addresses for every server you run on their high-end hardware. Having a dedicated IP address is always a good thing and has a positive effect on the website’s traffic flow.

DotBlock Stacks

DotBlock offers pre-configured layers of applications for your virtual servers called stacks. There are more than 30 predefined stacks to choose from, such as LAMP (Linux Apache MySQL PHP), Ruby on Rails, MineCraft, PHPlist, WordPress, etc. Apart from these, you have the option to create your own custom stack based on your needs.

Customer Service

DotBlock offers 24-hour support and customer service for your site. Some of the services on offer are account management, installation support, and support through ticket-based channels. You can order VPS management services to help with the installation, rebooting and other system maintenance requirements, and also get on-call support 24/7/365.

The support network at DotBlock also provides you access to a huge knowledge base that also contains FAQ’s and similar questions and answers that may help you run your site smoothly.
