Topic: hostingrails.com recent woes.
Is anyone else using HostingRails.com?
Up until recently I would have sworn by them.. now not so much "by" them as "at" them. Is anyone else here hosting there? I'm really interested to know if this is just my bad luck, or if it's time to move things.
I have three accounts on three different servers.. One VM and 2 shared. In the last 2 months one of the shared, and the VM machines have had catastrophic failures leading to between 36 and 48 hours of down time.. both on live sites.
My client went ape-sh*t about that VM as I had JUST put them on that account. Now I'm seeing the server that I have Listingly.com on going up and down way too much ( ah.. just came up again ).
I have to make a decision on this. I have a $20 / month slicehost VM that has NEVER gone down, so I'm starting to wonder why I am paying someone else for the "peace of mind" of monitored hosting.
Sorry to rant. It's not my intention to put out bad press about a host in such a small community, but either it comes back that this is just my bad luck, and Hostingrails gets vindicated, or it comes back that this isn't unusual, in which case people here should know.
