I appreciate that DH is a cheap and cheerful service, but the regular down-time really is too much to bear. I’ve been visiting the status blog at least twice a week, and that’s just too much for me - so I’d be happy to except that I may chosen the wrong host for my requirements.
Who, and how much, should I be paying to avoid visiting a status blog to find out why my sites are down? Maybe this isn’t the right place to post this - but there’s some very vocal contributors here who continually point out that DH is cheap, and use this as an explanation for the downtime. Could the same people tell me who I should be buying an expensive/reliable/high-expectation service from, please?[/quote]
I would suggest you go to http://realmetrics.comwhere they monitor a number of Web hosts as to uptime, peak uptime (during the daytime hours), Web speed, speed of customer support, etc. You’ll probably come away with some good candidates.
