Been Busy in DP Forum : Free/Cheap Hosting SUX

I don’t know why, my addiction to this freebies made me wasting my 48 hours of weekend.I spent my free time in front of my Acer laptop play around with free domain, free hosting and cheap hosting. I tried to setup new WordPress blog using free domain from Zonestraits.com free hosting at uuu1.net and cheap hosting at Exprohost.com.

Server Cable from kenyee

I bought a really cheap hosting, 2Gb for only USD 4.99 Day dreaming after saw their ad in DP Forum. I paid thru PayPal, using money that I earned from Matched.UK.Just for fun and to do some sort of experiment to see how reliable are cheap hosting. Well all I can say that better get a genuine or paid hosting like ServerFreak.Actually, I bought that cheap hosting because my 500 MB hosting with Serverfreak already full. I thought by buying a cheap hosting with big capacity will solve my problem, unfortunately it’s made my blogging more miserable. The admin only replied once, and I cannot connect to my server till 48 hours. The worst part is, the server is always down Crying. Sometime my new wordpress website is online, but most of the time offline and all I can see was a blue screen.My wordpress blog with free hosting also the same, totally not worth it. Upload a lot of thing such as plugin, edit theme and link to the server, in the end you get only crap.

404

Lesson learned here, don’t easily get tempted to buy a new hosting by looking at the number. A lot of factor have to be considered before buying a new hosting.Factor like, location of data center, uptime and down time has to be considered. Feeling a little bit stress about this hosting problem, I decided and already bought and upgrade my existing hosting with Serverfreak to Deluxe package with :

    • Disk Space                   = 2 GB
    • Monthly Data Transfer = 50 GB
    • Domains Allowed        =  5
    • Price                           = RM 180/year

    So no more problem with space Dancing and that really ease my mind.No more wasting my weekend using cheap hosting. For free domain at Zonestraits.com, maybe you can try. Not that bad, easy to manage and perform well. Good Luck and Happy Holidays!!

    My Entrecard went crazy

    I think I just beat Darren from Problogger and John Chow if that stat is true. 4096 credits to advertise on my blog hahah

    Maybe there are some glitch at the server. This is not the first time server break down happen at Entrecard.com. I think Entrecard should get a big funder to buy a new server to support increasing traffic in the future.
