That's an interesting article. I've been with HostDime in Florida since they started in 2003. It is now a large, privately owned company that has been growing slowly but steadily over the years.

The shared hosting program that I am on is no longer available to new customers, as they've mostly moved to larger business accounts. But the legacy accounts are still well supported with minimal price increases over the past 15 years.

I don't know who it is but it's probably Edouard.

Hahaha. Just kidding, my Orinda Classic Car Center friend.

I just sent my own review, which differs from the previous reviewer by a total of 3 stars.
WeatherCat iOS Clients / WeatherCatRCP Review at Apple App Store

Dear WeatherCatRCP Fans,

Someone recently posted a 2-star review for WeatherCatRCP for iOS at the Apple App Store. They had trouble connecting: "Canít get it to work. It opens the first time, but canít connect to my stuff only the test station setup, then crashes. Then it closes upon open after that until deleted and redownloaded. Rinse, repeat. - kp3_&_mp3"

First, if you know kp3_&_mp3, please ask them to post their problem on this forum so that I can help them. Frequently, the problem lies with their system setup, not with WeatherCatRCP.

Second, if you feel that WeatherCatRCP deserves better than a 2-star review, please take a moment to add your rating and review. Here is the link to WeatherCatRCP in the Apple App Store.

Thank you

I have access to the backend of another site in addition to my own (I serve on their Board of Directors). They are hosted by GatorHost. What a joke. I use NewTek Technology Solutions to host my website. Love 'em.
Dear X-Air and WeatherCat web spinners,

Thanks for the eye-opening references.  I wasn't aware of EIG and it's tactics, but it sounds like the web hosting equivalent of Standard Oil or Carnegie Steel of the previous epoch of trusts.  I was surprised not to see GoDaddy listed as one of the victims.  I guess it is large enough to thus far avoid acquisition. Whether that is a good thing or not is an open question!  ???

Cheers, Edouard  [cheers1]
General Discussion / Web Hosting company recommendation

There are fewer and fewer truly independent hosting companies these days. Many are being bought up by Endurance International Group (EIG), which itself was bought by Accel-KKR and GS Capital Partners back in 2011. Here are a couple of sites that warning about using any of the brands that have been brought into their fold:
  As Full As Possible List of EIG Companies and Brands With Details
  EIG Hosting Companies Brands With Details (+ Non-EIG Hosting Recommendation)

I'm still using Hostgator because I signed up for 3 yrs. My domain is handled by Namecheap. No real complaints with either company, but I plan on moving to CrocWeb for my hosting next year.

I'll be moving to CrocWeb, even though it's based in Canada. That has never been a problem for the past 9 months, when another forum I help administer, switched to them. Their help has been patient, quick, detailed and extremely helpful even though we are using their cheapest plan: 10GB SSD storage, unlimited bandwidth for $106 for the first 3 years (that can be further reduced to $63.72 by using a 40% discount code which I'll be happy to send you).

I've seen at least one company offering $1.50/mon (with a multi-year contrct, I'm sure), but I'm not sure what we should expect, in the way of "service", for that price! [banghead]

I do not have a cert so I'm still not using https. By the time that becomes a major factor for non-info collecting sites, I may be too old to keep a site, anyway. [rolleyes2]
Welcome to the forum jgd.
