My websites have had some trouble keeping it up. This site and about 20 other of my sites are hosted by 1and1.com. I have a business account for $9.95 a month with which I can host 50 different websites. Normally 1and1 is stable, but it has been down for a total of about 6 hours in the last week. This makes me nervous. I have the feeling that the physical PC where my websites live is getting old and starting to fail.
Also, over the weekend, my HostGator.com websites, about 10 of them, went down for four hours. This cost me about $8 in income because HostGator has my harmonica sites where I make my money.
I have not had the greatest luck when I go out and find cheap hosts. It may be, however, time to get a third hosting company.
