phpwebhosting sucks

Goobertech has a new host. (And soon - all of the other goobersites will too.)

Phpwebhosting started out great and had a wonderful track record. You sure couldn't beat the unlimited server space at $10 a month. But ever since christmas last year, the service and uptime have degraded to the point of non-usability. Literally, server uptime is as bad as 50% some days. That's unacceptable, even for a cheap web host.

So the search was on. I've found another host and have signed up as a reseller. This means that all of the websites that I create and support now live under one roof. Easy upgrade, easy backup, easy changability. And even better is the new host's guarantee of 99.9% uptime. No more slow loading pages or unusable periods of time. :)

So if you're currently experiencing the incredible suckiness of phpwebhosting on your goobersite, stay tuned. By next week you'll be running on the new host with more bandwidth and no downtime. And the change will be invisible to you, it'll all just start working faster and better.

You'll then start to see some pretty major changes on this site. I'm going to put more emphasis on the business of web design and hosting than my personal life. (It's a lot of work keeping up all those pics and albums and such.) Soon, goobertech will be focused on relating the information of what I can do for you web-wise and other internet related info. But don't worry, the few regulars that visit here will still get to peek at my life as I move personal albums and blogging to a brand new site. Stay tuned!

I'll show you on Saturday. I'm gonna keep this one under wraps. But I'm working it so that I'll have a dedicated server for goobersites only. :)

Woohoo - as of today, goobertech has a new dedicated server. 80 Gigs and 1200 Gigs of bandwidth. All for me, mwa-ha-ha.
