Considering the fact that this domain and space is being provided to me at no cost, I think it’s only fair that I take a moment to say a word about my sponsor, Host Color Web Hosting.
Over the years, I’ve had more websites than I can count, and I’ve tried very nearly every major host out there, including: 1&1, 50megs, Angelfire, Geocities, GoDaddy, Tripod, and more than a few of the small guys. Of all of the hosts that I’ve used, Host Color has provided me with the fastest and friendliest customer service. And I’m mean that sincerely. Every time I’ve had a question or comment, they’ve responded within a matter of minutes, whether I contacted them via e-mail or web form. That’s pretty impressive considering that most of my questions have come in the dead of night and considering that I’m not a paying customer.
In addition, I’ve been impressed with the quality of their service. I’ve worked on my blog from both a dial-up connection, a cable connection, and a T1 line, and in each case my page their servers have been more responsive than the ones at the paid account I have at 1&1.
I initially asked Host Color to sponsor my blog because they had a good reputation among my friends, but having now seen them in action, I’ll definitely be staying, free account or not.
