So, I was contemplating shifting to Xnet as I like the simplicity of the plans and I've had good experience with their helpdesk (I've setup three friends on the service). One thing that is stopping me is the static IP usage policy.
With my current provider I have a static IP and reverse DNS setup. I run a mail server and a development web server that face the 'net (I work from home). This appears to be against the usage policy which is a bit of a problem for me.
I can understand the reasoning behind the policy due to people setting up open relays, FTP/HTTP dump sites etc. but is this a firm policy? Is it ever relaxed for people that know what they are doing (I admin servers for others) and are using it legitimately?
