I set www.ampregen.com up 3 years ago with Bluehost and that arrangement is about to expire. Surprise, surprise their opening offer for renewal is $10.99/month (new accounts, as mine was, get the service for $3.99/month). I own the domain so I can move it where I like. The website is small and not busy and my e-mail account is not a very heavy load either.
To save the fuss of moving I will ask Bluehost if they can offer me a better price. But if they can’t (and I don’t mean $10.49) then I will move. I see eHost are currently offering $2.75 to new customers and $5.50 as a ‘regular’ price. Do you have any experience of eHost ? Was it a good experience ?
Bluehost haven’t been bad. I believe the uptime on the site has been great. The only problem, and it has been irritating, is that they quite often find themselves blacklisted by other e-mail providers, presumably because they’ve inadvertently hosted a spammer. This means that while my incoming e-mail works fine my replies get bounced back and I have to use my backup outlook.com address (which never seems to be blacklised). Bluehost seem unable to stop this happening and incapable of getting it cleared promptly (it can take days, and in one or two cases seems to be more-or-less permanent).
Anyway if you have a hosting provider that you love, and they’re available for a reasonable price, then I’d really appreciate hearing about them.
