Hi Jack,

I think it was Alexandre who was interested in a particular host in the UK and was debating bringing his business to a company who let him know outright that they do not support FreeBSD.


Thanks though!

Personally, I would never consider a vendor that does not at least have a cursory knowledge of the platform I was using on a leased server. If they are miles away, I want someone with a clue to be my eyes an ears in the event of an emergency.

I'd recommend going with a host who supports FreeBSD.

Hello folks,

I'm interested in a dedicated server plan from a somewhat big company called Amenworld (www.amenworld.com) but the sales technician is telling me that amen technicians can't install freebsd on the machines. After some googling
I found that they are hosting some freebsd machines (if this counts for
anything).

Is there anyone here that by any change is a client on this company and runs
freebsd?

Thanks in advance
Regards

Alexandre,

I know nothing about this company.. but just because a few boxes have FreeBSD doesn't mean they necessarily support it. It's possible to change from linux to FreeBSD on remote machine using utilities like: http://www.daemonology.net/depenguinator/

Hope that helps,

Jeff

P.S. Be warned, that utility re-images the disk, and can leave the machine in non-bootable state. Possibly forcing you to incur support fees from the ISP/Datacenter.
