Slight Interruption in Service | February 26, 2004
A few of you may have noticed my site was down much of Tuesday and Wednesday. This was due to my host changing their ip address without informing me. Because my domain is managed by a separate company, my DNS setting got out of whack, hence the temporary blip in service.
I was a little annoyed about the lack of notification. I was lucky as I check my site regularly and a few people contacted me to let me know it was down. However many site owners rarely check their sites and could have found themselves unavailable for some time before the problem was spotted.
Apart from this last blip, I've been pretty happy with my hosts. Their prices are reasonable (for the UK) and their support pretty good. However I'd be interested to find out what people think of their hosts. Do you have a host that is super cheap and super reliable, or maybe you've got a hosting scare story to tell?
