The WebFaction web server hosting Code and Life (and other my sites) has been experiencing filesystem issues and has been down for fscking several times. Apologies for site readers, hopefully the provider gets these glitches ironed out soon.
Just thought to post a brief and shamelessly positive note on my current hosting provider, WebFaction. It was actually their one-click WordPress installation procedure that got me playing around with blogging, which then lead to founding this blog. I ran into it when searching for suitable site to host Django-powered software, which lead me to this comparison of Django-friendly web hosts.
Now this probably wouldn’t be worth noting otherwise, but WebFaction is the only provider so far (leave a comment if you find others), that fulfilled all my stringent requirements for a hosting provider:
- Support for PHP, Ruby on Rails and Django (this alone is hard without virtual servers)
- Support for MySQL and PostgreSQL (to suit the daily mood)
- No arbitary limits on subdomains and domains within plans (it’s not like they cost anything to the provider)
- Starting cost must be below $10 a month (I’d rather scale up when I actually have traffic, not beforehand)
