Except it's not really Irish - oh I'm sure darksite.com is an Irish company,
but the only thing Irish about their hosting services is that an Irish
company is taking a cut for providing a virtual domain on a box in the
States (they use albanza.com). Now I've nothing against this, as such, but
the implication that they're an Irish hosting company I find a bit galling.
I'm also a little unhappy with certain things I find in their FAQ e.g.
] Darklite.Com runs servers at different geographic locations around the globe
As far as I can see, they don't run servers anywhere - they resell virtual
domains on somebody else's hosting platform.
] Can I get a Dial-Up service from Darklite.Com? No . . . , since our networks
] are not tied up with dial-up subscribers.
Our networks ? What networks ? Clearly, Darklite.com can't provide ISP type
services as they have no net infrastructure of their own.
Now, I don't know these people from Adam, and they're only doing what
thousands of others are doing, but don't think that they're a particularly
Irish hosting company. They may do what they do as well as can be expected,
but I don't like their marketing approach - but then I'm not know as a
friend of sales reptiles and marketing droids.
