The webhosting saga continues. The smallest stuff takes the most amount of time when running a business. Only entrepreneurs will understand that, especially start-uppers and small companies where one person is wearing multiple (or even all) hats.

You can’t really be without a website anymore these days. It’s like going on a date with someone who claims they’re not on Facebook. To me that’s a bit suspicious. The same goes for companies that don’t have a website. So we must have one.

I love spending a rainy day tinkering with my website. Making little improvements have turned my site into something I’m pretty proud of. But nothing upsets me more when my site is offline. And that happened a few times due to my previous hosting company overloading their servers with thousands of accounts. With that many people living in the same “building”, stuff is about to go wrong every once in a while. And it did. So they moved me around to a few different servers, but after a while the trouble would always catch up. So I decided to move elsewhere.

Things were better initially, but after a little while I found out I didn’t have the controls I needed. I’m pretty geeky at times, so like to be able to control some of the more advanced settings. I moved my sites again to another provider who put me in the driver’s seat a bit more.

Long story short… I’ve kept track of my history and share my best practice approach in my “Build a Website in a Week” ebook. You can download it here.
