That's just personal preference... but unless you also keep the old name and redirect the traffic to the new one, any current links, bookmarks & traffic you have will be gone. Same goes for email if you're using any addresses there.

Personally, unless there's a specific reason to change domains, I wouldn't bother.

I like having site-specific domain names, though that does get expensive unless you take advantage of one of the promo codes you find that lets you have multiple free domain name registrations (and even then, you're giving up more of your discount).

I like midnightwaters.net as representing *you*. It's nice to have something where you can have subdomains that don't sound or look weird. For instance, I have a domain supcomwiki.com and it would be odd to have something like commandandconquer.supcomwiki.com, but it wouldn't be odd at all to have commandandconquer.midnightwaters.net.

OTOH, as I said, for sites that you have big plans for, it's nice to have a SLD just for them. My wife's real estate site has its own SLD and eventually, she'll have a blog at blog.sld.tld, a wiki at wiki.sld.tld, a forum a forums.sld.tld, etc.

DO NOT GO WITH DREAMHOST!!! I'm stuck with a year contract with them, and I'm really kicking myself. My site is constantly down, and DH's tech support always responds to my support requests with rather ho-hum responses. If you don't care about your site being up all the time, then maybe DH is for you. Personally, I need reliability, and that's something that DH cannot offer.

hi dtb, i've seen your post in another thread. You should contact DH support if you consistantly have this problem. You can even ask them to move you to another server.

You already admitted in another post that you're too stupid to figure out how to leave and go to another host, so you're probably not qualified to give DH an accurate grade on their performance.

hi patricktan - how can DH support be contacted when the support page isn't working? (as has been the case for me for the last few hours... trying to report that half my DH hosted sites are down with a "bad_httpd_conf" error)

In my observation, DH is having some downtime but really not much. You might get more uptime for some expensive and aimed for uptime hosts but the price-quality ratio here is very high.

So, if you need to guarantee your uptime to a extreamly high level like 99.99%, prepare to pay for it elsewhere. If you can live for generally 99.9% and sometime 99.5%, DH provide a very low cost hosting service for you.

In your other post in another thread, you said your site was down "about once a week", but now it is "constantly" down...which is it?

As for the "rather ho-hum responses", what does that mean in clear and precise terms?

How are we supposed to give due consideration to your opinions when you vary wildly in what you report and use terms like "ho-hum" to describe support's response?

Three posts, two different stories...and no details. Do I smell a troll? As for the being stuck with a year contract, I'm assuming that means you are past the 97 days "full refund guarantee" limitation...it's really sad that it took you over three months of a site that was "constantly down" before you realized you were not receiving adequate reliability for your purposes (or could it be that your site has *not* actually been down that months, but your are just frustrated at some recent downtime?)

Well, take heart! With a good promo code used when you signed up, that whole year's contract might have cost you around $25.00...bummer! Wink
