This new host is even worse than the old one. This host was the #1 rated low budget host on multiple sites, yet I have never been able to get in contact with support and the site is down every other day for brief periods. I bought 2 years, but I may not be here longer than 2 months. It was down for over 6 hours today. 5 minutes every other day is bad, 6 hours = time for a new host.
If anyone out there knows of a reliable and affordable host that supports PHP and MySQL, please let me know. Also, if anyone wants to provide hosting, that works too.
I did manage to get someone on the phone and apparently there is a big power outage in the city (Santa Monica) where the provider is.
