Down for the Count

It’s never a good thing when you set up a new client’s hosting account, launch his site, publicize the launch on your own web design site (hosted at the same place as the client’s new account). And then get this shit:


Firefox can't find the server at pixelita.com

I’ve not been happy with my web host for a few months now. This blog is set up at a different server and I’m seriously thinking about moving my web design site here. I just hate giving up that nice WHM account and cPanel for my clients. But what good is it if they can’t access it?

  1. I’m going to assume you’re on the reseller plan there, as opposed to a dedicated box.

    It’s a good price, but massively oversold. 2000GB (2TB) of traffic? Their dedicated server only offers 1TB of traffic, making that reseller account laughable.

    I have my own box at The Planet. by comparison it’s much more expensive, but I’ve had a total of 6 minutes network downtime in the last 2 years, and that was actually scheduled weeks in advance each time.

    Server upgrades etc, are up to you, but with cpanel’s WHM it’s extremely easy to maintain your own box.

    Depending on the number of clients you’re hosting, and whether you’re hosting them at bargain-basement prices, it may be worth considering.
