If you’ve visited over the past week, you’ve probably noticed, or been a bit perplexed to notice, that this blog has been down. That’s because I was hit with a rather nasty batch of malware on my site. Long story short, since all my websites were down anyway, I figured it was time to move web hosts.
I am so glad that I did.
I was originally with Godaddy.com – a good web host provider with great prices, but their support was terrible. And that was confirmed when I tried contacting them about my virus issues. I had to wait 24 hours to receive a response; a response which turned out to be a standard computer generated response that didn’t answer my questions at all.
Enter Google Search. It didn’t take me too long to realise that I really wanted to host with WPEngine, but just couldn’t afford them. More searching showed that iPage was my next best offer. They offer LiveChat support – which is equivalent to having my own tech guy in my pocket 24/7 to coach me through the move step by step. They also offer great malware scans and back up support too. I managed to lock in to all their benefits at the great price of $2.95/month for two years. And it’s been fantastic! It’s been quite a move across with me making a few mistakes – but every time iPage tech support has helped me politely and successfully. It’s been simply a brilliant experience. So, now I bring you – hayesfamily.co.za/blog – free of malware and happy to be back up and running. Thank you iPage!
