Hosting Matters

If you're here, then it is probably via an IP address link that a few kind souls have been nice enough to provide. The DNS has been changed and the old URL should start working tonight.

Advice for bloggers... Backup, backup backup...Also don't forget to download your backups. They really don't do you any good stored on the server...

By having a local backup I was able to make the move in a few hours, most of which were spent salvaging and reposting items that appeared here since 10/03/2003, the date of the last backup that I had easy access to.

I'm proud to join the legions of Hosting Matters customers. If you are disgusted with the performace of your current host, it is worth noting that they will generally match the terms and pricing of your current host to get your business. That is very cool.

Feel free to bash your current host in the comments (or my old host Verve), but Hosting Matters is off limits for now. I've drunk too much Kool-Aid today...

Heh...all the Kool-Aid maki... (Below threshold)

Heh...all the Kool-Aid making prolly explains the brief outage at HM yesterday...even White Glenn was down...my gauge as to just how badly I've screwed up tweaking MT...click to Glenn or Michele..if they're up then I'm screwed. ;-)

Don't get me wrong, I LUV HM...they take care of bidness...great tech support....my last host packed up and sneaked out in the dead of night (had backups)...then tried billing me the yearly fee again!

HM rocks...welcome aboard.

The bizarre thing is CalPun... (Below threshold)

The bizarre thing is CalPundit was down all day to "host incompetence." His host: HostingMatters.

Last night's issue was not ... (Below threshold)

Last night's issue was not with us but Qwest, resulting in some people (not all by any means, or the helpdesk would have imploded) not being able to reach the NOC. They resolved their issue fairly quickly.

As for our 'incompetence'...well, obviously I wouldn't agree with that particular characterization. Other peoples' mileage may vary, but it does give us a window into certain things.
