Switching Web Hosts

5SHARESFacebookTwitter I’ve been doing some moving around of my websites to other web hosts recently. However the reason I made the recent move to another host was because I disliked the way their support system is structured. It seems they use third-party providers to provide support for customers. While that was OK for me, the design was pissing me off and I am not going to pay $30 per month for something like that. Although if I am honest, they provided a decent enough service and they provided it free (I signed up using a coupon which allowed me to use their hosting services for free). So I won’t bad mouth them or say they were bad, that would be totally unfair. However, I will not be continuing my subscription with them. The reason I switched to that host The previous host I had before the host I mentioned above, sucked big balls. Their server seemed to always overload or have slowdowns which would affect me when I was at work typing up an article on my military website or my space website. Plus I believe it probably put off users as even when I thought at the time, things were normal, it was far from the truth. So I made the switch, I saw considerably improved speeds and I didn’t regret switching one bit. As for the crappy host or slow host that I was with, I paid around $15 per month, then I switched to a better host, which was $0 for three months and now I am with a host which is $3.95 per month. It’s quite funny. However now I believe I’m with a host that I’ll be with for a long time. After my websites pick up traffic and after I start making a decent net-profit, I’ll probably switch again to Eleven2 hosting, which is one of the most renowned hosts I’ve come across on a web hosting forum called “Web Hosting Talk”. It is funny because when I was in the UK, I used to rent a dedicated server which cost me around 120GBP or $240USD per month when I was running my free web host. That server was a beast and the host I was with (WiredTree) were of epic proportions. If I ever need a dedicated server or a VPS, I know exactly where to go, WiredTree or either KnownHost. (As price matters :D) I moved to another host, which for the good of things, is considerably cheaper. (Although they do seem stable enough, in fact their name is “StableHost”) – They have been around for quite and while and I moved...

Good sites I’ve come across

10SHARESFacebookTwitter I’ve just come over some pretty good free script sites. These are actually decent scripts, these are scripts that are made in the functionality that they’re going to be free. It’s as if, the developer of these scripts have actually made decent scripts, which are worth paying for; as the functionality of these scripts are just great as well as the user/admin interface. The sites I’m promoting on here are these: Boonex CeleronDude These are decent script sites, which offer decent scripts that do not need mass editing, unless you want to change the appearance of these scripts. But I just came accross these, and I fought what nice people to offer these wonderfully coded scripts for absolutely no price. – It really inspires me to start training at php/mysql coding, seeing as you can make all these wonderful things in your free time; for free. 😉 I’ll be using one of these scripts for my website: keeperscafe.com, and what you see on keeperscafe now is nothing, it’s just a CMS script I was testing out, but I’ll be uploading something nice on keeperscafe.com. 🙂 The scripts are as follows: (celerondude.com) Uploader v6 This script allows you to run a “file hosting” service on your web server. For a demonstration of the script and of the latest version, visit CDUpload.com. Shoutbox This is just another simple shoutbox. I needed one for my site so I wrote one. It’s meant to run inside your layout but can also be run by itself. A demo of the script in action is right here on my site. For screenshots of the admin section, scroll down. Simple Gallery A simple gallery script. Drop images into the albums directory and you’re done. Create albums is as easy as creating a new directory, literally. I’ve put up a demo gallery here. More scripts which are from:...
