Web host changing - is there anything better?

Don't you just love changing servers and reconfiguring whole sites.. That's what my weekend consisted of for the digital-diy.com site..

It's hosted in the US now, Aussie hosting companies just cant compete with foreign hosting. There is not a single unlimited plan in all of AU, and anything over 50GB bandwidth is upwards of $100 p/mth.. I was on a 5GB/mth bandwidth, needless to say that gets eaten pretty quick.

The painful period is the DNS propagation. I left it for around 10 hours before starting any real migration, and could you believe it, the DNS actually reverted back to the old name servers mid migration - sigh. There was about 4 hours of recovery after that.

Anyway, its finished now, and lets hope it doesn't need to be done again for many years to come :eek:

Mine's supposedly unlimited, and nice and cheap - I buy as a bulk user and reseller, so provide various friends with their webhosting :D

£100 per year for unlimited bandwidth and space on ten websites, or £2.99 per month for one website.

Now I understand why Electromaster has chosen to ask for "contributions" to this site ?

$100.us a month that's crazy. Sorry gramo I like the your tutorials. But, I seriously hope it doesn't bankrupt you.

My site and email server is hosted from the Attic with a backup server offsite in the workshop.

It also has a MythTV setup on it so I can record up to 8 channels of TV at the same time - I had to make some use of that 1.5Tb of storage on it ;)
