After a week of Hindoogle being down, along with all of my homework, music, and blog, I finally switched to a new web host.
EasyCGI, who i was a loyal customer of for 3+ years, apparently sold out to a shitty company, and decided to “migrate” all of its users from perfectly good Windows 2003 servers to some other configuration. They didn’t test anything, and put up a half-ass control panel. Their support staff gives answers like “Did you refresh your browser?” when i tell them that my entire MySQL database is inaccessible. They did an excellent job copying files (hooray) to the new server, but screwed up all the database stuff.
Anyway, I suppose I’m lucky because nothing on hindoogle generates any money, and downtime is a nuisance and not a business loss. I feel bad for other EasyCGI customers that relied upon them for business. Is this any way to treat longtime customers?
I Joined eApps.com , per Jason’s recommendation, and am _VERY_ satisfied. I can start putting up my Ruby on Rails business ideas here :)
This site is currently hosted by Eapps.com. They are a VERY good host, not a single day of downtime since November 2008. They promptly and properly answer all of my questions. I have a Linux private VPS for $11 a month, which is a steal. VPS is far superior to shared windows hosting. If you want to earn me a free month, please click this link to sign up with eapps and list “Rajat Banerjee” as your referrer. Thanks I appreciate it!
“I used the expression ‘ride herd.’ I don’t know if anybody understood the meaning. It’s a little informal in diplomatic terms. I said, ‘We’re going to put a guy on the ground to ride herd on the process.’ See them all scratching their heads.” — President Bush, June 4, 2003
