Update 001 – 5-5-10
I’ll be switching server hosts within the coming week. The transfer is pending with my current provider. In an attempt to cut costs for the coming year, I’ll be switching to iPage hosting per a friend’s recommendation. Basically, they offer more than my current provider and at a lower cost. In fact, my current provider tried to keep me by offering a hosting discount and e-mail package when I requested to switch. Their “discount” was to offer group e-mail (I have 3 email accounts for various business related purposes) at only 99 dollars for the year. $99! Makes me wonder what I paid for this stuff back when I first got it (5 years ago when I had money). That said, iPage says they offer unlimited domains, unlimited direct email accounts, and unlimited bandwith/storage. I don’t use that much on most fronts, so the idea of being able to get a couple re-direct domain names and a couple name specific email addresses for under $50 a year seems like a good deal. We’ll see. Either way my Hosting was going to have to be renewed this year.
