EEVblog web hostingPosted on June 18th, 2013 9 comments
I get many people ask were and how I host eevblog.com and the forum.
The answer is HostGator at www.hostgator.com
I use one of HostGators dedicated servers to host the wordpress website and forum.
It’s an Intel Xeon E3-1220LV2 running at 2.3GHz, with 8GB of DDR3 RAM, 500 GB RAID-1 Drives, with 10 TB of Bandwidth and 100 Mbps Uplink seed.
So yes, I have my own box in a bunker somewhere deep in the heart of Texas serving up these pages.
And it’s powered from a wind farm somewhere which is pretty cool.
So if you are after a website, either small or large like mine, I can recommend them.
I used to run this site, the forum, and streaming video on a <$10/month basic shared hosting plan for a few years, so it's amazing what you can achieve on a basic plan. Pretty much unlimited everything.
I'm now part of their affiliate program and get a referral fee if you use them, so check them out if you need a web host small or large, and that helps support the blog.
This guy is the first thing that came to mind when I saw that you were giving these guys a recommendation… Hilarious
He’s getting all the tattoos removed by one of the companies now so it’s got a kinda happy ending
That story was both funny and sad. I don’t know if I could support a company that took advantage of a guy like that.
C’mon now, we all know Dave would get a tattoo from Agilent before anyone else…
HostGator is pretty sleezy. There are 100′s of better choices out there that give you more for less.
There is a large windfarm in texas, you can pretty much buy credits at it and say you’re “wind powered”
I manage one domain for someone else at hostgator. $8.95 a month. It’s not bad, I do find the interface clunky and the choice of apps unappealing. I also manage another one at godaddy, and have pretty much the same complaints. With the bonus of many unexplainable, unfixable slowdowns a day.
If I had to pick a plan out of the air this week, I’d try the Amazon EC2 micro instance of windows server. It’s free, and you’ll learn a lot.
But it’s a moving target. I strongly recommend relying on ‘the cloud’, because you can be instantly locked out of your site for no reason. And it’s happened to me.
oops, should have been ‘recommend against’ not ‘recommend’!
Woah this blog site is great i adore examining your site content. Continue being within the good function! You’re certain, plenty of people are usually shopping spherical in this data, you may support these folks considerably.
Agreed with Mr. Adam Perkins.
