I have read some posts on here and see many suggestions for Saratoga. I am fed up with bludomain. Every single year I have this problem. They don't invoice me for my domain or my hosting, my website goes down and I can't get in touch with anyone for weeks. I emailed them before this happened and got zero reply from them. I am completely clueless on how all of this works but I really want to move my sytist website. Any suggestions on how to do this? Tim, do you offer this service?

Thanks for any help!

I use SaratogaHosting and never have any issues. Great service and really fast servers that are always up and running. I had Go daddy before and it's like day and night. I haven't had one issue with Saratoga, it just works great.

Thanks William! I checked out their website and it looks like a great option. I just don't have a clue on how to move everything over.

Depending on the how much space you need, I have plan 3 and when using amazon s3, I barely even use any of it. Once you select the plan you want, Dave will reach out to you to start the process of transferring. He can do everything if you want him too. He did everything, he's very familiar with Sytist. When I went to sleep, the next day waking up, everything was all up and running great and that was it.

Hi Cyndi, I use AWS and FastComet.com. Depending on what your needs are and how much traffic you get on your site. Look at your traffic on your site and research other host and make an educated decision from there.

Cheers,
Happy New Year!

William ~ Dave has been amazing! He called me on New Year's Eve to talk about everything with me and then again on January 2. He has worked so hard with me trying to get this done. Unfortunately BluDomain is holding my domain hostage and will not turn it over to me. Dave was able to get me a new domain, but I really need my old one back as that is what all my clients (I do lots of big school teams/organizations) have as my website. I need to at least be able to point my old site to my new one.

Thanks for the recommendation Arron, but I've already started working with Dave at Saratoga.

Cyndi Bender, I am wondering how this worked out for you. I currently host with BluDomain, and my site has crashed 4 nights in a row, all while during my busiest time, so I am losing so much revenue! I want to change my hosting site, but just curious what happened with getting your domain from bludomain.

Alicia,

There is not much comparison between blu and Saratogahosting. Saratoga is like getting a VPS for a shared hosting price. Plus he is at his best hosting photographers on Sytist.

Dave (Saratoga Hosting) can move you site for you. I think there is a charge for that, but let him do it. When I first started with PicturesPro the best recommendation I got was to use Saratoga. Have i tried other hosts. You bet, if there is something better, I want to know. There is not. I'm just telling you.

Alicia ~ I switched to Saratoga and have not had any problems since! Dave was amazing at helping me switch over...even working on the holidays and late at night to get me set up. I highly recommend switching!
