Sorry about the down time!

Monday, June 29th, 2009

Warning:  There is nothing technical in this post and definitely nothing about WPF.  It is just an explanation and request for web hosting recommendations.

If you tried to reach my blog today and received an error, I apologize.  Evidently, my hosting service (normally I’d include a link to, but I don’t want to send them any business!), has decided that my site is too popular.  This is the third time they have shut down my domain because it had more than 200 concurrent connections.

Okay… I know some of you are wondering how I possibly get that much traffic, as delinquent as I am lately in posting new stuff.  I apologize for that too!  😳

Anyway, for whatever reason (I like to think it’s because there’s a decent amount of good WPF information here), this site gets quite a few visitors each day.  Every once in a while, too many of these connections occur at once.  My host told me today that if it happens again, they are shutting my account down for good.  I am VERY disappointed about this, and needless to say, I will be seeking a new host as soon as my schedule allows.

In the meantime, if anyone has a recommendation for a company that offers Windows-based hosting, please let me know.  I don’t make any money off of this site and I prefer not to host ads, so I am hoping for something affordable… preferably someone who offers phone support!

Thanks in advance for any recommendations!  And if you just want to rant about DailyRazor, feel free to post a comment below with the title "DailyRazor Sucks!"  But please don’t everyone post a comment at once… that’ll get my site turned off for sure!  😉
