I love my web host

Taking a break from the Eee love to give some love to ICDSoft. Even though there are web hosts out there who appear to give better deals (“unlimited bandwidth,” for example), I’ve found ICDSoft an absolute pleasure to work with over the years.

The uptime is almost 100%, the customer service is friendly and prompt (never have to wait more than a minute for a response to a question), and they every now and then surprise you with a major upgrade (at no additional cost).

Just this week they migrated my Psychocats server (I didn’t even see any interruption in service during the migration) and multiplied my bandwidth limit tenfold. They’ve also moved to Debian, which they said will provide more stability (and everything I’ve heard from the Linux community is that Debian is rock-solid).

Very exciting, and just in time for the release of Ubuntu 8.04 (Hardy Heron), when I’m sure my site will get hammered by eager new Ubuntu users. Thanks, ICDSoft!


  1. Hmmm. I have 173 days 11 hours and 22 minutes on my Ubuntu machine. Login was October 24th of last year according to the “w” command… Which was when I rebooted it after upgrading from 7.04 to 7.10!

    Of course for a large portion of that it’s had the “reboot required” icon in the notification area.. haha oh well.
