Website Hosting - Who Do You Host With?
I use Black Nova Designs for hosting and I know them personally. Great family company and always quick to fix anything I need.
Amazon S3 for images
I host on my residential connection, which is a 1GB/S (up and down) fibre line with unlimited bandwidth.
Even if I didn't host I would have the same internet package so its effectively free. I've only had 2 instances in 4 years of an outage which was only a few hours but I have all sorts of alerts setup to let me know when it happens.
I realize I'm not supposed to run a server on my residential connection, but its minimal compared to the rest of the houses usage and has never even been questioned by my provider.
Hope that helps!
Good for you! ;) I was wondering... I've thought about doing that, but my bandwidth couldn't keep up during my busy times. I run my own servers through LiquidWeb. But your way would work great for many photographers! If they can figure out a basic low-dollar server with lots of storage! And it's really not that hard to do.
We switched to Saratoga and AWS a few years ago and it was the best choice we ever made.
Dave did all the heavy lifting for me and the price is very good. Only one very minor issue in ll that time and it was quickly resolved. Our previous host was terible and the site was always slow.
None of those problems anymore.
Switched to Saratoga Web Hosting and it was the BEST decision (other than choosing Sytist) for my photo business! While GoDaddy is good for a simple wordpress site and other sales sites, it was a NIGHTMARE with Sytist. Dave at Saratoga is a great guy and I can't recommend Saratoga highly enough. He and Tim work well together and the combination of Sytist and Saratoga are perfect for what we do!
Caveat here: At this time Dave is a "SOLE proprietor" doing everything himself and CRAZY busy, so you WILL have to wait in the que to get switched over (in my case it was a couple months), but I PROMISE, it is WORTH the wait 100%!!! EVERY single problem I had was SOLVED with his help (he helped me in other areas than just hosting). I can now sleep at night.....
