I’ve been lazy with posting because I’m contemplating switching host company. I’ve been satisfied with my host company but I haven’t looked into hosting price since I started this site back in 2007. Four years of computer development time, it’s like I’m leasing a 486 computer for $4,000 a year in this day and age. I’ve been paying $20 a month for storage that I can now buy for under $5 a month. I brought it up my host company that I’ve been overpaying and asked them if they could offer me their promo price $5/month, but they told me they only offer their promo price for new customers, I would have to pay their current price of $11.
I like my hosting company, Dreamhost, and I’m really lazy about moving servers, but they do charge more than other companies and they made the opposite of any effort to keep me. I found a pretty decent company, FatCow, that wants to charge me $3/month for the first year. I like the name FatCow. If you find this site completely broken in the next week or so, it is because I am, what my British cousin calls me, a “Stupid Cow” and I have borked the site while moving.
Did I mention I’m very lazy though? More than likely, I’ll just hold a grudge against Dreamhost and not do a thing about it. One really big thing Dreamhost has going for it, is the month to month plan. I don’t know why I am such a commitment-phobe, I’ve been with the same company for four years, it would make sense to switch to a yearly plan but I can’t do it. It’s going to be the same way with the boyfriend, I’ll be calling him boyfriend when all my teeth have fallen out and people openly cringe when I call him boy-anything.
I have to admit, I cringe when I hear old people call their significant other “boyfriend”. Something about the word “boyfriend” implies that those people are still having sex unlike “husband of 40 years”. Do I really have to explain that I don’t need the mental image of old people having sex? And did I just go from web hosting company to giving myself the heebie-jeebies?
