I want to personally apologize for the site misbehaving periodically for the last couple of weeks. The current traffic numbers have become to high for my host to handle under my current plan and consequently they have been shutting me down until I upgrade. Unfortunately the cost is now about 5 times higher now than when I started the site and I am looking for a better host. Currently the site is averaging around 200GB of exchange/bandwidth a month and growing each and every month. My current plan allowed for 20GB.

So the conundrum arises. I am now on the market for a new host. Changethethought has grown enormously over the last year and is now reaching a very large audience. So I need a host who can handle a growing site and would be interested in potentially marketing their services through the site. I have tried hard to keep the site ‘ad free’ but the expense of running it is starting to worry my wife and I. I didn’t really realize just how crazy this was going to get. Good problem to have I guess but now I have to find a new way to handle it. Any and all suggestions welcome and thank you for visiting. New and better things are on the horizon.

I am currently considering Media Temple but am still not sure.

    There was a time where every designer wanted to be hosted on Media Temple just because the “big names” where there but the service is a little expensive; I think there’s nothing better than Dream Host; I used before and has never give me problems; it may be an option for you. http://www.dreamhost.com

    Everybody says Media Temple is really expensive but so far they have quoted me a fantastic price with a really great package. I used to want them to be my host just so I ‘looked cool’ like all of the other design sites I looked up to. Now I just want someone who offers good service at a price that doesn’t force my wife and I out of house and home.
