In Exile

It has been more than 10 days since my last post on jozjozjoz.com, making this my longest absence from blogging since I started my blog. So if you find this, booya to you! Here's a collection of links I wanted to compile for myself in my search for a new host, since I'm finally leaving iPowerweb and their CCC rating on the BBB behind me: MEDIA TEMPLE I heard MediaTemple was good; they have a AA rating with the Better Business Bureau, but there are these accounts of poor service: -Amazon Review of MediaTemple -Danny Choo: MediaTemple is a pile of steaming turd -The WatchMaker Project HOSTMYSITE -Hearing ok things about HostMySite.com... more research to be done... NO WAY, JOSE! -I know I am not going with 1dollarhosting/Webcountry... they have an F with the BBB! Got any suggestions for me? UPDATE: Lomara suggested Dreamhost, which I'd also heard of... turns out Dreamhost has an F with the BBB. Eeek! Carly suggested Hosting Matters and they only have a couple of complaints at the BBB. So there's one I could probably do more research on.

Exile! Do you also have a fortress of solitude?

As I posted on B.la, I was with LunarPages and was told to disable my blog or be kicked off.

I just moved to Nexcess.net and they did the entire transition for me except for repointing my domain ... easy as pie. It's a little more expensive, but I'm hoping it's worth it.

Now I just need to get the remainder of my money back from LunarPages.

When I was shopping for webhosts, I kept going back and looking at Dreamhost. They seem inexpensive for what they offer. Have you checked them out? I couldn't find them at the BBB so I don't know their rating.

Try 1and1 hosting....they're a VERY stable, large company, and have agreeable pricing! Or call me or Shelli and I'll host ya here. (although I'm not nearly as reliable)

I'm surprised at Dreamhost's F rating on the BBB! I've been using them since 2001 and have never had any issues whatsoever.

heh heh heh... it's all part of our evil scheme to get you to blogspot!

I mean, welcome to blogspot! ;)

it's a relief to have you online (even a little) again.

i have to give a second thumbs up for dreamhost - i am tickled pink with them. i've used them for two years now.

in the meantime, be patient with blogspot, they just finished a huge spurt of outages, and there may yet be a few things to make you bang your head into the keyboard. (blogger bit me so bad, i finally *after four years* changed to WP")

good luck to you!

1and1 is bad news for MT.

I like pair.com even though I'm hosted on fluidhosting.com right now. :)

I've had Dreamhost forever-they've been extremely helpful and cool. They are big advocates of WordPress, which went up seamlessly on my site (no-you can't see my blog). Inspite of the BBB rating, I know a number of folks that like/love Dreamhost. Give 'em a whirl.

Hugs to you & Yoshi,

David

I was at Dreamhost. Note the word 'was'.

Here's my plug for my much improved host...

Well, I'm glad I finally found you!!
I signed up for 1and1 two months ago at a ridiculously low rate, only to find out that if I wanted to run Perl and other CGI scripts the monthly rate would be SIGNIFICANTLY higher. I told them to just forget it.
