Anyone who leaves a well-run, customer friendly hosting company
because a DOS attack made their site go down for a bit on a Friday night is, in my eyes, an idiot.
You're never going to find a hosting company that is totally DOS Attack proof. And you'll never find a company that is more receptive to the needs and attention of bloggers than Hosting Matters
And when that person leaving the hosting company says they are going to find a "blue state" company to host with, well, there's some other issues there that go way beyond the understanding of servers.
As I do often, I'd just like to thank Annette, Stacy and all the other HM
people for all their hard work in keeping their hosted sites running smoothly.
[this has not been a paid announcement. it's gratitude]
