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!

    I was also with http://www.affordablehost.com until the new Canadian owners took it over. Not only are they down so much, but their technical support people are useless. I couldnt work out if they were stupid or just very unhelpful, but they definately sucked.
    Search google for affordablehost and read some of the hosting forums and you will see that you are not alone in abandoning them. Word travels fast on the internet, and giving bad service is no way to survive.
    I’ve used Pair.com hosting and am pretty happy with them.

  2. Glad you’re back online. I thought the Artists Rights Society might have nobbled you! Thanks for your tip on the Michelangelo Google doodle. I enjoyed the Google doodle art gallery and I’ve posted a link to it for my readers, in case they don’t bother reading comments. Thanks again.

  3. That’s the last thing I would need at the moment; somebody chasing me about copyright issues! Dealing with web hosting companies is challenging enough for now.
    And yeah, the Google doodles are great. I think it’s just one guy that does them all (Dennis Hwang).
