Well, my host was down again this morning….for about 2-3 hours. This was the last straw. I went and purchased a 2 year deal with a new host. I had done a lot of research on hosts for the past couple weeks and I knew I needed to make the move. I need to have my sites hosted with a company that I know is reliable and provides a high ‘up’ time. I ended up choosing hostgator. They get a lot of good reviews from a variety of sites and they’re one of the bigger names in hosting while still providing service at a reasonable price. We’ll see how it goes. I’ll probably try and make the transfer of all my domains tonight.
I want to add that there’s a decent chance that I have lost NO business in the downtime over the past couple days….it’s not like I’m some mega company or something. Having said that, it’s no less important that I can count on my business and personal sites to be up BECAUSE unlike the Fortune 500 companies of the world- I can’t afford to lose any business.
