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!
“Well, it’s an unimaginable honor to be the president during the Fourth of July of this country. It means what these words say, for starters. The great inalienable rights of our country. We’re blessed with such values in America. And I – it’s – I’m a proud man to be the nation based upon such wonderful views.” — President Bush, visiting the Jefferson Memorial, July 2, 2001
