Time to rebuild my spread of hosts. I am looking for 2-3 hosts for my small personal jumppage whose main current use is linking my typical web recurring items, to possibly host some linked files if you stay put long enough for me to get around to writing the matching articles. Site should be able to handle hobby mp3's and decent sized texts such as 10megs.
No banners. Sorry, but I shall not do posts on your forum, because it becomes wasted effort when the host folds. I will do two linkbacks to the user login page and a central/forum page, but my main value-offer is below:
By now y'all have seen that with a certain exception, I promote my host selections here with a remark every 3-4 months. I value longevity and stability over flashy features.
If a host stayed put long enough one day I'd recommend them to others, but ya'know - in some 2 years here none of my choices have succeeded! So, I would only like offers from hosts that have been up for more than a year.
Just don't try to claim "Unlimited" anything. Also, don't trumpet your "community", because free hosts are primarily mercenary resources, not communities.
What do you mean by "contact them"? It's your company, that you're spamming here outside of the advertising forum. Don't make it sound like you're just some happy user who loves this host.
I guess, Masterbo, I floated by today to look stuff over, and oh dear gawd when did this re-make happen?! I want to see the thread on it. Someone else got bitten by Web 3.11 Social Media fever!And FWS changes its face very often now. When I visited it today, I even thought it's just gone.
Hi wswd, good to know you're still here!
Hi Deeplist.As the years continue to go by, and the internet continues to evolve, I've come to realize that hosting is dead... which is also quite evident by the decline of /fws/ into nothing more than a spam pot. Whether the hosting industry will come back around to what it once was... who knows, it's a topic for debate. One thing is true, at least for right now: personal websites, blogs, and whatever else are a thing of the past. As social media continues to grow at an ever increasing rate, the amount of human beings who approach me for hosting services continue to dwindle. I have a pretty good customer base of clients who have been with me for years and years that I don't anticipate will be going anywhere. But a lot of personal blogs and what-not that I used to host are diminishing as people leave, not because of poor service, but due to lack of interest. My resellers are losing clients at an alarming rate to the "big box" companies like 1&1, GoDaddy, HostGator, etc. The big fish will continue to swallow up the little guys as the market continues to change from being over-saturated with tons and tons of teenagers running web servers to a monopoly of a few super-companies.
Where does this leave me? Well, a couple of years back, I saw this coming and I quickly began to diversify my services and turn my focus away from hosting. I revamped my website to incorporate my newly involved arenas, like: logistics, warehousing, eWaste recycling, and surplus auctions. Web hosting is more-less just a "side gig" now and will probably remain that way indefinitely. The money just isn't there any more. Some will argue that there's still money to be made in areas like VPS, colo and things of that nature, but I'm not set up for that, nor do I have any interest in getting involved in it. Hosting is time consuming, and the profits are low. In most cases, the hassle and time and involved outweigh the little income that is generated and it becomes nothing more than an inconvenience. Hosting will remain a "side business" for me as I continue to support my current clients and take on new clients, but I'm no longer actively marketing that venture in any way shape or form. Automated sign-ups are only accepted on paid hosting accounts, and free signups are now by request only. This is due to the ever-increasing amount of spam and nonsense, and my overall lack of interest in wading through hundreds and hundreds of bogus requests.
At any rate, thanks for the update on this project. I will continue to check in regularly.
