http://www.dnsmadeeasy.com/

They are reliable and offer great support. It’s easy to set up a fail-over site, so you could have the web-site hosted at Pair, and if they ever go down, users are redirected to your back-up host e.g. Dreamhost.

In fact, DreamHost is great, too. In its own way. But not for uptime reliability. I had installed an “uptime check” through a web service, that basically pings the site for reachability every few minutes. I stopped receiving downtime notices when I switched to Pair. Of course, in the midst of this mix-up, when perhaps only half of the world is even getting rerouted to the old site, I wake up this morning to learn that my site was “down for 25 minutes” last night.

I’m really trying to get past this. Breathe. Don’t get angry. It’ll all be over soon.

Luckily, after switching to site5 a few years ago, my hosting related problems have almost disappeared. Never switch off your computer and never take vacations, shareware apps have an affinity for Murphy’s law; as soon as you’re indisposed they need your attention.

This story is an excellent read. If you’ve been through similar (OMG!) scenarios, the words just fly by and you are close to regretting it didn’t go worse. But you had your share for today, I guess :-) Good luck with the permanent fixes!
