Woes of shared hosting


Ok… I guess it’s time. I read an email this morning from my hosting company that provides shared hosting for captainoculus.com and metaversecafes.com I sent a video highlight reel to a few friends. While the hosting company claims they provide enough bandwidth for (and I quote), “99.5%” of our customer base, CLEARLY they are lying through their teeth.

This is a very big eye-opener for me as I was planning on using the Console to merely “point” at my web hosted resources.

I suppose the time has come to revisit Linux… if you can’t beat them… join them.




Well most of the time time the 99% of customer bases have a static or dynamic text based website with some content. It gets a tad bit more complex if you have to host videos or other media.
