If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.-John Q. Adams You must accept one of two basic premises: Either we are alone in the universe, or we are not alone in the universe. And either way, the implications are staggering.-Wernher von Braun Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.-Albert Einstein
Another great feature, if you're setting up SQL Server backends or even using sql server to do tests is that you can connect directly to your sql server databases using a URL and SSMS (Sql Server Mgmnt Studio). Very nice.
I have found WinHost's service to be more than satisfactory. They have a nice management interface that provides plenty of info up front, decent guides, SSMS access and they allow you to run your site with full trust on their standard package. Plus it's cheap.
Don't understand that, I've been with them a year and they have been good. The only problem I had was my site went down once for ~24 hours and when I emailed tech support they reset the AppPool and it came back up. I asked them if it was something I could do and they said there was a user option to do this so found it and if it happens again I can fix. If you do decide to change do not go with BizHostNet they suck a big one, tech support is almost non-existent and site is slow and goes down regularly, for as much as 3 days with no notice from them.
Have you ever just looked at someone and knew the wheel was turning but the hamster was dead? Trying to understand the behavior of some people is like trying to smell the color 9.
Thanks: the site often goes down early morning and takes a while to come back - get lots of 500s. It also takes email with it. I am tired of having to chat with someone who you know is not giving you the whole story or going on line to reset the app pool.
Anyway, been with them for a few years: time for a change!
We are doing shared with the personal pro, but will probably upgrade to business class at some point. Do you know what the actual errors are, and what applications are you hosting there? I'm hosting nopCommerce, and would like to know what I should look out for if their hosting starts going bad.
Just a couple of vanilla asp.net web sites. I find that they are usually down first thing in the morning (LA Time) and come back after a few minutes. Often mail is also unavailable with 500 errors. Appears to be pretty random.
Have spoken with them numerous times but it keeps happening. Not the end of the world, just irritating. Would be worse if they were ecommerce sites (but then I suppose I'd use either the cloud or dedicated servers for that)!
There was a large outage a week or so ago that took some time to clear.
