Web Hosting and Reseller Hosting

Over the past few months more and more people are contacting BLaST creative to share their horror stories of how their site was taken captive by the web designer who hosted their site on their own private server. Or they used a designer in Canada or an oversees company who did the same thing, hosted their site on their private server. NIGHTMARE!!!!

If you are thinking of having a web site design, do some homework, purchase your own hosting. Don't let anyone but you control your web site. You can give your web designer access to your hosting, but you get to keep your files and control over your site.

Another problem is that most hosting company do a resell of their hosting. There are a couple of issues with this, first it costs more, becaue the reseller can adjust the price however they'd like. So in the end they charge you way more then if you would have went to the original hosting company.

Problem #2 with resell hosting, if that person goes out of business or changes business, you don't have access to your site. For example, you can't just go to to log-in, you have to find this reseller hosting's site in order to log-in. It's a pain. So save yourself a lot of headaches and go to directly to purchase your hosting. No headaches, no heartaches and backup all of your files so that you have them in the event that you need them.
