Last week, my blog was down for the first time in a LONG, LONG time. It was funny, however, that it coincided with the one time I was in a rush to blog. And no, it wasn’t like it was an urgent post or a commissioned article or what not that I was going to post about, but a very deeply personal experience. I don’t know if that was supposed to mean something, or if it was just coincidence, but nevertheless, it did give me a moments pause. In all fairness to my web hosting service, all it took was a quick message and a few minutes to fix the problem.
I’m lucky, I guess, that my provider is able to attend to my blog’s (or should I say my many blogs’) needs. Imagine if this was like a business oriented blog and the provider would often be down? Talk about a loss of income. For my personal needs, these kinds of shared hosting seems to be fine but should I finally venture into a larger scale online presence, I may consider getting a bigger and more beefed up managed hosting plan that offers more than just larger disk space and bandwidth but can also guarantee the quality of service provided. An added bonus would be the reassurance of security and protection from various elements that some colocation plans provide.
For now, however, since I’m still more than anything a personal blogger, I have to say that I do love my web host very, very much. Right Mommy Rubz? So far, I’ve truly been very satisfied…although I’ve had to up my plan recently…but that should be a good thing right? hahaha!!!!
