Righting the Ship

by | May 13, 2004

I like to give credit where credit is due. There are a lot of cheats and incompetents doing business out there. And there are also decent, fair, smart people in business. As Whizhost disintegrated, an enterprising hosting company mined their customer list and also managed to get the Whizhost domain name servers forwarding to their own DNS—I assume they paid the defunct firm for that right. Anyway, the people at SB Hosting have been helpful and their robust offerings, new control panel (including Fantastico), and consistent uptime are impressive. With Whizhost my sites were down at least once a day, sometimes for a minute or two, sometimes for much longer. You get what you pay for, and Whizhost was a bargain basement buy. In fact, they did business with no physical address—only a private postal box in Miami and no working phone number. Can anyone say class action lawsuit?

My personal bottom line…It feels good to finally join the real world of Web hosting.
