Yep website is really not working well!

So, so sorry about this website going off-line so much! Look at all that downtime over night! I was up till around 2:3am last night, trying to work what is going on! Still hoping that my host can sort it out…

Been with them since 2003, so really don’t want to move away from them. Since overall they great! Got more than one website hosted with them. None of others, go off-line like this!

With being in lockdown, can’t really be doing with the stress of this! Running this website should be fun! But right now, it’s anything but!

The cost of hosting is going up!

I’ve just had a email from my host, saying that the monthly cost of hosting is going up! Right now, I pay £5.95 a month, that’s going up to £7.95. But, I don’t really mind, since 34SP.com, over all gives a great service.

Right now, I get…

  • 50GB website storage space
  • Flexible shared hosting usable for multiple CMS or custom code
  • Site builder with unlimited pages
  • MySQL and PHP7 support
  • Subdomain support
  • Mercury email with 500 mailboxes, webmail, IMAP, POP
  • Advanced anti-spam features
  • SMTP outbound server as standard
  • Weekly backups
  • On-demand Snapshot backups
  • Free Let’s Encrypt SSL with automated renewal
  • Unlimited transfer and no page limits for standard website usage
  • 100% UK based support over email and phone 365 days a year
  • DDoS protection
  • Advanced shared hosting security
  • SSH access

I’ve looked at other hosts, many times over the year. None of them, then give me half of this stuff! Also the support staff at 34SP.com, are great!

P.S. If you do sign up, with 34SP.com, make sure you fill out the “referred by friend” and enter www.gordon-valentine.com 🙂

Moving to a new server (9th January 2013)

34SP logoI got the following email from my host last week.

“As part of an ongoing programme to improve the service we deliver to you, we will be migrating your professional hosting account for gordon-valentine.com from the server currently powering it to a more powerful, up to date server.

As part of this move, Plesk will no longer be involved as the control panel on your server and all changes to your account can be made through our control panel.

Your website will be unavailable for up to an hour next Wednesday 9th January 2013.

E-mail will not be affected during this move.”

So when you can’t access this website for a number of hours today at some point you know why.

Website been playing up (24/04/2012)

Sorry about my website being off-line for most of the morning. The server: prohost7.34sp.com that this website is hosting on has been playing up. I believe that 34SP has fixed the problem. Going by their status page anyway.

But I don’t believe that at all. Since it took me around 15 minutes, just to get this post on-line. Because the website kept going off-line.
