A while ago I took out a lifetime “venture capital” hosting package with SteelPixel. This was when they were looking for funds to grow there business and upgrade their servers. Although I would not normally trust a lifetime agreement this did make financial sense to me as the cost of hosting will be less than the return expected from any other investor. After careful consideration I decided it was worth the risk to me.
Sadly the company has been having some problems with maintaining stability, and a recent hardware failure has caused them to leave the hosting business. The good news is that because of there efforts another company has agreed to honer there agreements, and although I no longer have lifetime hosting I do have a package for three years.
