Yet another web host discussion. I am debating whether to call go daddy or just throw up my arms, pay for "business class" cable and host myself. Sure, it will cost me more but 2 seconds to load a page after warm-up sucks! (To be fair, my page has three network rounds, index=800ms to 1200ms for straight HTML with only a master page) 400 ms for the errata, and another 400 ms for the CSS images).
 
I wrote a tool to scan my site every minute to "keep it warm" but still : (. It's odd because Shopify, while not as bad, was still kind of bad. Me personally, if a site takes 8 seconds to load I bounce, 2 seconds ,I think about bouncing. So frustrating. (GoDaddy has the 8 seconds cycle, Shopify never more than 2)
 
The ad above shows Rackspace as an option and I do have an account with them. I might spool up a Windows Server but they have change their pricing model to make Windows boxes a fair amount more pricey. $73/month is not bad but ... well I could build a nice server for that and I already pay for Internet at home. At least then it can be mostly my fault for poor service. Even the CDN's from rackspace were relatively slow and I can't SSL their CDN to my domain Frown | :(
 
Why is creating a business so hard, and why do I have to shave so many yaks just to get started?
 
On the plus side, while putting it altogether I am getting a new-found respect for pricing.
Need custom software developed? I do custom programming based primarily on MS tools with an emphasis on C# development and consulting.
