Why I Moved My Sites To HostNine
I just moved all my sites off Hostgator and onto HostNine.com.
The main reason was support. Since Hostgator had been bought out recently, I started to experience more downtime than usual. To their credit, I did receive a credit for one month of service, but I like my websites to be up and running.
And frankly, I found a better deal than I was getting there.
So I pulled the trigger and moved. What really made me do it was when one of my ezWebBusinessBuilder2 members emailed me recently to tell me they couldn’t log into my member area. My database server was down and I was getting no response to my support ticket.
So I started that dreadful search for a new host. Luckily I found a top-ranked host within a few hours.
In more than 18 years online I’ve only been with 4 different web hosts. I tend to stay put when things work. I’ve used shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS and even dedicated servers.
This time around I decided to focus more on my new local business design clients and went for a reseller hosting package. Since HostNine lets me put each client on a different IP and even a different server location, I jumped at their $34 a month reseller solution. For that price I get a whopping 100 gig of server space and a terrific up-time track record.
What’s more, they migrated all my sites over for me, all I had to do was set the DNS for each of my domains.
