Goodbye web-space

PHP webhostingMy account at PHPwebhosting closed today, marking the end of an era. Out of all the hosting companies I’ve tried over the years, they stick out as the best, most reliable and most flexible one out there.

Unlimited being ‘fair sharing of resource’ in reality but not once I’ve asked them for more disk space or for some feature to be switched on to negative response. Good technical support, excellent up-time, very flexible in the solution of any problem, even if it’s about the monthly bill.

Nick, Carl, colleages, thanks for your support over the years and may business flourish!
