“You! Hey, you! Over there! Yeah, you, the one with the Dreamhost hosting account. Listen up!”
What on earth is it going to take you people to stop putting up with the abuse that Dreamhost gives you? I swear, you all sound like battered wives: “Oh, yeah, it’s bad, but they promise they’ll never do it again!” Yeah, sure… they’ll just figure out an entirely new way to screw you over next time. And there will be a next time, guaranteed.
Sure, they’re cheap. Agreed. And you get exactly what you pay for. Hell, I’ll host your site for 10¢ for the next year. And if you find anything cheaper, I’ll match it. Of course, you’ll have 0% uptime, but all you care about is the cost, right?
Us? We’ve been with pair.com since 1997. Yes, we’ve been happy customers for ten years. And yes, that’s an affiliate link, but I recommended them for years before I had one (although now that I think about it, I’ve never actually received any affiliate income from them, so I guess I’m still only a satisfied customer).
And while pair.com isn’t as cheap as Dreamhost, they do have some good specials, particularly for what they refer to as “Web hosting refugees”—i.e., you. So get yourself on a decent host already, okay?
And remember, you get what you pay for.
