Midphase Review – Web Hosting

Midphase web hosting reviewYou may have noticed that Art News Blog was offline quite a bit over the past week or so. Thanks to the lovely people over at Midphase.com for suspending my account three times and a big thank you to the tech support people at midphase hosting.. for your excellent impersonation of a brick wall. I seriously couldn’t pick the difference (I have spoken to more responsive brick walls).

The official reason for Midphase suspending me was the “amount of CPU and/or memory resources used by your account” and they said they want to help me “track down the cause as quickly as possible.” It’s more than a week later and they still haven’t found the “cause” of the problem.Continue Reading

10 Things I Hate About Having an Art Blog

Sorry to have a public whinge, but I don’t have a therapist, so this is the next best thing ;-)

Most of the time I enjoy looking after Art News Blog, but sometimes it really gets to me and I struggle to log into Blogger! So, here’s ten things that I hate about having an art blog (there’s easily 100 things that I love about having a blog, but I feel like having a whinge today!)..Continue Reading

Web Hosting Fun!

I’ve been having web hosting problems the past few days. So Art News Blog is currently being hosted on my friend’s account while I get a new account set up with a NEW host!
So if anybody has sent me an email the past few days, I won’t receive it. I still haven’t set up my email yet as I plan to move the site in the next day or two to another hosting account.
If you’re looking around for a new web hosting company, save yourself some stress and avoid using affordablehost dot com. I used to recommend them to friends until new owners took it over, which is something I now regret!

On a more positive note, I love Yahoo Hosting because it’s always online, and MidPhase hosting is also reliable and offers some good affordable hosting plans.

Update: Midphase hosting WAS good once upon a time. See my newer Midphase hosting review!
