Archives For hosting

I’ve just moved the blog installation over to Slicehost, which means this is the third hosting provider I’ve used for this site in less than a week.  All of the hosting providers I’ve worked with have provided great service at good prices, but I’ve been unhappy with either the performance or the server configurations.  Slicehost is great if you’re willing to forgo a control panel, I’ve used them in the past for various server projects, but I’ve become spoiled by having a nice control panel like Plesk for personal sites or RightScale for Amazon EC2 servers.  However, I just can’t find a provider who offers fast VPS hosting of an Ubuntu server and provides a control panel at a price point which is competitive with Slicehost, and since I’m using Movable Type to publish anyway, I don’t really need anything else to manage the site.
