Looking for Web Hosting That Doesn’t Suck
Let’s see… from at least 9 AM to 8:30 PM today, both my Web sites, all my domain names, and all my e-mail accounts were completely offline. I was unable to find out a reason why, and e-mails to tech support went unanswered. So that’s almost 12 complete hours of downtime without even so much as an “oops”. When I shell into the box where my stuff lives, the only explanation given is “8/18: Massive screwup with startup scripts. Hosting services unavailable for a few hours.”
Seriously, that’s unacceptable. 12 hours downtime is not a minor “oops” issue, it’s a major fuck-up. This is the second time in three months that they’ve knocked me offline for 4+ hours without an explanation, too. If I was running an online business through csoft and they just shrugged their shoulders at that I’d be tempted to burn their office down.
If anyone can recommend a good virtual hosting service that supports the following:
- Multiple domains (preferably unlimited)
- Multiple MySQL databases
- IMAP mail access
… for a reasonable price, drop me a line, I’m very interested.
