Yes, we have used them for several years. As I understand it, it is now part
of 4Domains.com based in CA. I ran into the same confusion. We host our own
servers locally but have tested one of our large ISAPI apps without incident
and may move our new product out there. We have primarily used them for our
email and, though there was about a temporary outage incident about once a
year, we've been pretty happy with them so far. Support when we needed it
has been pretty responsive. But, of course, not as good as Elevate...

There aren't a lot of hosting outfits out there that will support ISAPIs.
They do.

You might look at the 4Domains hosting deals.

I suggested a couple of years ago to start a dbisam service
on that T1 connection u have IW exe's and dll's and your
stuff but some folks grumbled.
I have this huge noisey box running SuSE ent server at the
mo that I havent even touched since I bought it.
Maybe I should wipe it and install Windows on it and put
it in a local co-lo farm nearby but not so near I can hear
the fans Wink

Well, I would have don it if I had the time, but EDB really ate up all of my
free time. Smiley

I bet you could make some money doing so.  It's a question that we get asked
a lot, and I'm sure that there are a lot of other database developers using
other database engines that would use such a service also.
