After seven years with webhost4life, it was time to move on. Especially because of all the troubles with webhost4life due to their internal migration to a new hosting environment (the company has been bought out).
I've just moved all my websites elsewhere. I'm now using Arvixe and OrcsWeb.
I use OrcsWeb for metaSapiens.com. OrcsWeb kindly offers me free ASP.NET hosting because I'm a Microsoft MVP. I'd like to publicly thank OrcsWeb for this, and I invite you to have a look at what they have to offer.
I use Arvixe for all my other websites, the major ones being SharpToolbox.com, JavaToolbox.com, AxToolbox.com, Proagora.com, LinqInAction.net, ClairDeBulle.com, and madgeek.com.
Moving all my websites wasn't a walk in the park, but it was well worth it. Let's consider what I get with Arvixe:
- Unlimited diskspace
- Unlimited data transfer
- Unlimited domains
- Dedicated application pools
- Unlimited POP3 and IMAP mailboxes
- Unlimited SQL Server 2008 databases
- Unlimited MySQL 5 databases
- .NET 1.1, 2, 3.5 and 4
- Full trust
- IIS 7
- Daily backups
- A powerful and easy to use control panel
- And more!
All of this for $8 per month. If you don't need all of the above features, you can even get an offer as cheap as $5 per month.
You can even get better rates if you use coupon codes, such as TOPHOST (30% discount) or MVCHOSTING (20% discount).
All in all, I paid only $134 for two years for a great hosting service!
Maybe it's time for you to move too?
