This past week has been a busy one. I finally decided to drop my reseller server and emailed all my friends (who I hosted for free) to find another host. I was planning on going with Dreamhost since they offered WebDav and both PHP 4 & 5 support. The only problem is that the past year or so they have more negative feedback than ever before. Most of them were related to reliability and email. So then I decided to stick with my current providerHost For Web. They have a $9.99/month plan but FTP access is slow. I tried a lower plan for 2 days but figured I’ll go with GoDaddy. Even though they don’t have WebDav support, I’ll be using Box.net. They provide WebDav service for free. Why do I need WebDav? For iCal, of course – so that I can synchronize my calendar between multiple Macs. Google does have their calendar and it’s web based so that solves viewing updated data in multiple locations but it doesn’t synchronize the info onto my Nokia N80. iSync synchronizes contacts and calendar via bluetooth onto my cell phone.
Anyway, I’m with GoDaddy now which is why there were times that this site was down or parked. The DNS was propagating. On top of the lower price, I found some coupons online too. I’ll probably be moving the rest of my domains over this weekend and canceling the other account. On top of that, GoDaddy gives you free hosting with a domain purchase. Only thing is you get ads, which is fine for me since some of my domains are for developing and testing anyon3e – and you can choose between Linux or Windows.
