Hosting, A few Truths

Posted by Eddie Shoe on 30 Sept 2016. 

Think about it. Who is actually hosting you site? Unless you are with one of the big companies, you don't really know. It could be a kid in their basement, a few collage students in their dorm. More likely you are buying from a reseller. I'm sure you have seen companies who offer 'reseller hosting'. Nothing wrong with that, except when you have a server problem, the reseller has to contact whoever they buy from, who MAY have to contact who Mat have to contact someone else. etc. Meanwhile, you are getting ticket responses like, "Our techs are working on the problem". "We have escalated this to our engineer." 'Our Data Center has been notified of the issue." "An upstream provider has had a failure." All these from some kid or some outsourced support.
