Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

I’ve been with Hawkhost.com for a few years and had no problems apart from of my own making when they have been friendly and supportive. I don’t have great needs but I think they cover everything.

o2Switch looks more economical either way you slice it, though I can’t quite tell what’s going on there. They seem to have a shared hosting (hébergement mutualisé) offer — ‘really unlimited, as they note in red — for a single annual fee of 72€. I can even pay by direct bank transfer because I’m in France. But then they advertise this ‘unique offer for 5€/month, but I can’t tell why/how that’s different; there’s no elaboration there that I’m picking up on. I guess I’ll drop ‘em a line with my needs and see what they say.

They replied and kindly explained, without laughing, that the two price offers are the same offer. They must use a different calculator than I do, but I’m guessing one includes tax, the other doesn’t to make it look sweeter.

Still, I’m going with them, and will transfer my domain to them too, away from that crap US registrar, Dotster, which has been getting more sales aggressive with every passing year. Hope to have this wrapped up by end of week.

well, that was shortlived. Pair creates Dbs as swedish_ci be default!! Ugh! and making them utf-8 involves too many steps. also, their user accounts all have to start with your main account ID. no go!

I am cancelling and now my work continues to find a webfaction replacement.

I say this as someone who rolls my own hosting for my own projects, and recommends proper hosting companies for my clients: look at Hetzner and see if they’re right for you. I have numerous clients hosted with them, and they’re all happy with Hetzner.

it looks interesting but it seems taht we can ony host 10 domains with their level9 plan

It does say you can add further domains over and above the 10 at a cost of 0.58 € / domain / month. I couldn’t work out – even reading the German – whether that also applies to externally registered domains pointing to their DNS servers, but it looks like it as they say 1 domain included and 10 add-on domains. How many were you likely to need? Infos here:

My own host – https://all-inkl.com/webhosting/ – is considerably more generous in that respect for the same price, but it is also in Europe. If you are in North America, won’t you be wanting a server nearer to where you or your clients are?

all inkl is a good choice. i actually don’t care where the servers are as long as it’s a good deal and the documentation is available in english.
i’ll keep hunting. disappointed that Pair is so antiquated with regards to lack of UTF-8

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

Does anyone know how the VAT / Sales tax (which rate) is applied if you are a non-EU resident? Depends on the rate, it adds a bit (more) to the monthly price.
