Avoiding the Web Hosting Nightmare - The Webhost Who Doesn't Deliver
(Page 3 of 6 )
Another story I want to give you may be a minor one in comparison to the one above, but it still has pertinent issues that you will want to consider. A friend wanted to move her web host, and feeling that the company she was researching had answered the questions she asked to her satisfaction, such as the ability to get a dedicated IP and SSL for her web store, decided to sign up.
The company was offering a free domain name, so she found one she liked, and they put the hosting account into this domain as the root. In the process of a couple weeks of setting up her older site with the web store as an addon domain, she found out that she could only have a dedicated IP as long as her SSL certificate was on the root site. Unfortunately, her SSL certificate was for the site she was moving and setting up as an addon domain, not for the root domain. After much hard work moving her web site, she had to search again for a web host; one that wasnít stingy with IP addresses. Itís probably a good thing anyway, because she also found out that several of their script versions, like PHP and SQL were older than her store supported.
These stories now bring me to the important points I wanted to give you when choosing a web host, and avoiding the nightmare.
