    I’m using 1and1. Never had a problem.

    I have a couple sites on 1and1. Not a problem.

    Yeah, I signed up for the free hosting and now I have something like 15 domains hosted there on two business packages.

    Is it bad if I’m recognizing alot of the personal domains on that list?

    Sweet, I am in the middle of that list!

    (Although, cutting my domain name in half really ruins the awesome name: farkt.ogra.ph, instead of just ogra.ph)

    /Hosted on dreamhost, which hasn’t had any problems that I can tell recently.
    //Now that I have said that, it is going down tonight like crazy.

    i’m surpised I’m not up there. I have 187 entries in my farktography profile, and they’re all hosted on my web server, but they are broken up into two domains which essentially point to the same space, sacredartichoke.com and abandoned-alaska.com. I guess neither one of them brok 100 on their own.

    I just wanted to follow up, saying dreamhost sucks. My site has been down for the past two contests, is down right now, and blah blah blah wah wah wah.

    I am on dreamhost too, and haven’t had any issues with the past 2 contests.

    It seems like it is really dependent on which host you get on Dreamhost, so their consistency definitely sucks.

    What’s really weird, and also very suspicious, is that while staplermofo.com is down, morethanstaplers.com is still up.
    They’re on the same everything, but staplermofo.com gets like 100x as much traffic.

    I can ftp into it fine and everything.

    I’m pretty angry about it, but at least I didn’t eat dog cheese. (it comes up around 8 minutes in)

    Maybe I’ll switch to godaddy…

    I switched to flickr around January because imageshack kept spazzing out on me. I just went flickr pro last night. I like the fact it lets me see the original size on the biggest pictures. flickr has been very stable for me.

    Just make sure that you mark NSFW/borderline images appropriately, since Flickr will make your entire profile “Adults only” with no explanation or recourse.

    That happened to me, so I moved to Ipernity.

    thanks schnee for the info. i’m in the middle of the list with 273. not too shabby for just under 4 years. the site is hosted at lunar pages and overall i’ve been happy with them. like all the paid sites the bandwidth and storage have gone up while the cost has gone down.

    one caveat re personal sites. i just found out there might be a trojan on my site and what i’m getting told is: 1) the hosting company monitors and protects their servers rigorously 2) if your site is hacked it’s your fault and up to you to fix it. so now i need to learn a whole lot more about what happens under the hood and then go through the site and find/fix whatever might be broken. yeah this will end well.

    i also have a flickr pro account but that is for ease of sharing stuff over a much wider group of folks.
