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...
