The problem with nfoservers is that they traffic shape. It's not a preferable option for web hosting because transfer speeds are slower on average. Other providers may work better for web host. Aggressive upstream filters for DOS (denial of service) mitigation hurt transfer speeds.

Stability is more important than transfer speed for game servers because the UDP (User Diagram Protocol) is relatively low bandwidth. As many people as possible are also crammed onto their preferred transit provider. It's low ping, stable and low cost, but the transfer speeds are very sub-standard.
