There has been a lot of buying in the hosting industry. Personally I know about a lot of hosting companies being bought in The Netherlands by 2 or 3 parties of which 2 I think are investing funds. After being bought, prices are being increased. Hosting landscape is changing, I guess. DA from the beginning has been different in this kind of way in my opinion, so let's see if that still holds up .
hahah i could not laugh more yesterday, when i seen this news.
I am so glad, that i kicked them from my servers 5 months ago. All the guys who thought one price increase is fine and stayed with them further or went to Plesk and hoped they will not increase their prices , are now kicked in the ass. But hey, maybe they realize now, that its not too late to switch ;-)
