I hope the downtime and slow response times I suffered under my previous shared hosting provider didn’t turn anyone away from my sites. But so as to prevent that from happening, I’ve now gotten myself a dedicated server at a provider called OVH, one I’m very pleased with. I got myself a Intel Xeon E3 1245v2 machine on a solid 250-mbit (1 gbit download) connection with them for a measly $56 a month. Go here if you want to see their deals in the line I used.
Since the OVH server is in France, I’m leaving the An Alabama Story running on my old provider though, due to free speech reasons. But for the material I’m going to launch on my own sites in the future, I realized I really couldn’t do with the shared hosting any longer. A dedicated server is so much nicer, and it’s certainly been fun toying around with it since I bought it.
