Ok, you got us. We are Mac Mini Vault. Obviously we are biased to which service you should choose. We assembled this table from searching the web. All data is publicly available and we did our best to make sure it is as up to date as possible. We found many out of date websites and what looked like ancient ruins of hosting companies. What we have in this table are the most up to date and popular offerings. We believe that honesty is the best policy. You can see that our package price isn't the lowest, but the value that we bring to the table surpasses any other offering. We are so confident about our service that we want you to compare everything we have to offer with the competition. We even offer a 24 hour demo period with no commitment - no need to sign up and supply a credit card. We do not nickel and dime for every little thing, we do not try to gouge customers by renting out items like memory upgrades or video dongles. Our goal is to deliver the best service and the best value.
