I’ve spent the past several weeks switching hosting companies: from MediaTemple to A2. My experience with MediaTemple between March and April was a nightmare that I’ve blogged about before. I no longer recommend MediaTemple. In fact, I would strongly discourage anyone from using them. I notice they are running specials and finally switching to SSD. Articles blessing their hosting service are beginning to pop up. [/twocol_one][twocol_one_last]Hmm. Business must be down?! Oh, well. I’m on the way out the door—that’s for sure! (Just a few more things to do before I pull the plug.)
My blog is now being served to you from the 100% solid state drives (no moving parts is a good thing) of the servers at A2. Their servers are delivering 1 megabyte more data to you per page in ⅓ the amount of time MediaTemple’s shared grid service did! Shame on MediaTemple. That’s kind of amazing to me. You once were so good. But then, well, … you seemed to become more about the money than the customer.
So, Welcome! I’ve got several other things I want to get posted that have been waiting in the wings![/twocol_one_last][hr]
