Over the past year, I've moved from C Class hosting to A Class hosting to increase IP diversity. After hearing all of the praise on here about multiple shared hosting accounts and considering that my costs would be cut in half, I decided to give it a try (regardless of my past experiences with budget hosting companies).
So I searched WebHostingTalk.com and fired up Microsoft Excel, then the fun began. My plan was to only transfer 20 sites to the budget shared hosts to try it out.
Unfortunately, my past experiences with budget hosting companies resurfaced. Between the immediate downtime with some of the hosts, horrible support, ridiculous FTP issues for a simple site, support tickets flying around, and recurring billing issues, it turned out to be a major headache.
Without these issues, budget shared hosting would be a great alternative. Maybe I'm just trying to cut the costs down too much and not taking the time to read multiple reviews (even then reviews have failed me in the past). :confused:
For those who have a blog network using multiple shared hosts, how do you deal with these issues?
Thank you ahead of time for your help.
