New Web Host
June 1, 2006

Mywebsite has been hosted by, well, a host of companies:

  1. AOL (gimme a break, it was the early 1990s)
  2. 9 Net Avenue
  3. XO Communications (they bought 9 Net Avenue)
  4. FatCow (which truly is "udderly superior")

I've been wanting to convert the site to ASP.NET 2.0 and use SQL Server 2005, but now the fees are too low for even me to pass up. I found several hosting companies that offer ASP.NET hosting at reasonable rates. Butre-invent technologies offers ASP.NET AND SQL Server 2005 at amazingly low prices. In fact, if I hosted my site on my own hardware, I might spend more on electricity than re-invent.net charges me.

I've moved the site to re-invent.net, and I'm slowly converting static HTML pages into ASP.NET 2.0. I'm using the SQL Server 2005 database to manage this blog, user feedback, Tips for C# .NET Software Developers, and runtime exceptions.

So far I've had to contact technical support twice, both on Sundays. In both cases the support folks provided good service in a timely manner.

I'm planning on blogging about my experiences moving the site to ASP.NET 2.0 / SQL Server 2005. Stay tuned!
