Web Hosting FailI’m moving all my sites off HostNine and BACK to Hostgator.

Yes, I left HostGator a few years ago. But now I’m going back.

The main reason is support. HostNine support has slowly gone from hours to days and now as long as a week to get a simple reply.

So I started that dreadful search for a new host. Luckily I found a top-ranked host within a few hours. And to my surprise, it was HostGator. Their new Cloud Hosting is very inexpensive and powerful.

They have a brand new line of hosting services and their revamped service is top notch. I tested it myself by calling support during a few busy periods and got a live person in under a minute each time.

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.

What’s more, they’ll migrate all my sites over for me, all I have to do was set the DNS for each of my domains.

If you’re in need of a new host of just want to save some money each month, check out the new HostGator. If you use the link in this post, you’ll get a discount and I’ll get a commission. And hopefully, you’ll get a more reliable host than you have now, at a better price — just like I did!

    I’ve been hosting with HG for many many years now and would not trust my sites with anyone else. They have never let me down. Best of all, in the last 10 years alone, I think I MAY have experienced a total of MAYBE 20 minutes of unscheduled/unplanned downtime. And that’s being conservative. I use HG for all my own sites as well as those of my design clients.

    Happy computing!
