Switched hosting providers from DiscountASP.net to Arvixe
I wanted to start using SQL Server. I was using DiscoutASP.NET, and was paying $10/mo. If I wanted to add on SQL Server, it would have cost an additional $10 per month, brining the total to $240 per year, which was a bit more than I wanted to pay for hosting on a personal blog.
I searched around and found a host named Arvixe. The price was absolutely excellent. The basic hosting package costs $5/mo, and it comes with 6 websites and 6 SQL Server databases. They also claim unlimited bandwidth and storage, although I’m not sure what it means. I am pretty sure that its not really unlimited, although I doubt they’ll complain about my little blog. The final price for Arvixe (I also got a static IP) was $96 for 2 years (that’s with a 20% off coupon, which can be found pretty easily using Google), with an additional $48 for a static IP for 2 years. Not bad, and way cheaper than what I was paying before.
Also, my pages seem to be loading very fast, so right now, I have 0 complaints. The control panel and webmail at Arvixe are way better than DiscountASP.NET, so that is also a nice bonus.
