Hopefully I have made my last hosting provider change for the foreseeable future. I quickly grew tired of the free (no-ad) hosting sites. Their reliability was beyond subpar — but since I wasn’t paying for them, I didn’t feel like putting in support tickets and get bombarded with “upgrade! upgrade!” cries.
If you’re diligent you can figure out where I’m hosting this. It’s only $2.99/mo for an OpenVZ linux instance. After a month or two I’ll report back on how the reliability has been for such a low cost hosting provider.
