Who would not be amazed of those services and features. Perhaps none since even us gave LP a shot.

But, don’t use Lunarpages hosting if you’re a non-US user who prefer paypal payment in US dollars. Lunarpages uses Stratocash as its own payment processor. We’re from Canada and we usually do transactions using paypal as mode of payment since it is widely used by most merchants. When we signed up for a new LP account we were assessed in USD. Then Stratocash automatically converted our bill into our country’s currency, Canadian dollars. And since the primary currency of our paypal balance is USD, we are need to convert our USD into CAD to pay our bill. On those two conversions (Stratocash and paypal), we paid 21 USD in addition to our actual bill. So unless you are willing to pay for unnecessary conversion charges, don’t use payment processors such as paypal, e-gold, and the like to pay for your LP bill. Or else you may want to try looking for another host that accepts direct paypal to paypal transaction.

Don’t use Lunarpages hosting if you prefer to monitor your site’s statistics using awstats. LP doesn’t have awstats installed.

And lastly, don’t use Lunarpages hosting if you would like to avail for the money-back guarantee as soon as possible. After trying their service for a couple of days, we found ourselves unsatisfied with LP’s hosting, so we asked for a money-back guarantee. And from the day we asked for a refund, it took around 3 weeks before we finally get our money back.
