The Short Version

On Thursday two of my websites were compromised and my hosting company shut down all my websites. Having encountered multiple hacks over the last several months, I decided a clean slate was needed. I thus got a new hosting company and started 4  of my websites from scratch. The other 16 +/- sites… well, I decided to just shut them down. It was a hard decision, but one I’ve been thinking about for some time. This weekend put the nail in the coffin for them.

While I was at it, and due to necessity, I gave The Daily Burns a face-lift.

That’s the short version.

  1. I’m sorry to see them go. I was clicking around on Extra Side for the past month or so. I guess I’ll just have to go back to the Internet Archive from now on.

    Which webhost did you decide to go with?

    • Yeah, ESOB was a good idea I just never had time for. Wrote a bunch of initial posts and that was it… oh well.

      As for hosting, I went with namecheap.com. They are who I buy my domains through, so thought I’d give their hosting a try.

      • I hadn’t heard of namecheap before. I’ve been a GoDaddy guy for domains since WAY before they did their infamous commercials. My brother and I use CirtexHosting for our sites. They’ve been pretty reliable.

        I hope the new host works out well for you!
