About My Web Host
Well you may ask! I WAS being hosted by
It is an
American based web host that WAS run via an Australian. Unbeknownst
to me it was SOLD a few months ago - and UGH it deteriorated
massively. Just for fun - go to their (amateur) web page and try to
look for the advertised tutorials/knowledgebase etc. The TOS is
still Queensland Australia but I think that's because they haven't
bothered to change it. They have been un-contactable by every method
I can think of so far - and they hide their domain registration so I
can't get to them via a Whois search or similar. They were still
taking my money though! My advice :- DO NOT USE THIS COMPANY!
Now my current host is
Bluehost.com. Why this company? They Have a good track record
and were VERY easy to set up! Also have massive number of MySql databases,
storage and transfer. Price is great too!
Agghh! Boy was I wrong ..... Not long after signing up, I was
met with prolonged down time and poor response times. I emailed
support - they apologised, responded that they had difficulties
getting adequate staff numbers, and were moving data centres. If I
would just hang in there, they would soon settle down, OR i could
accept a pro-rated refund (I thought this a professional response).
Well, I hung in there for a while longer, then had to cut and run.
Got my refund though!
Soooooo...... Now I am with
Site5 on one of
their multisite express accounts! Essentially 5 domains as separate
sites controlled from the one group of control panels. it means I
have also hosted my
site and my
test site at the same place. Seems excellent so far, but only
time will tell - as the above confirms. Watch this space!
