My current domain & webspace is hosted on dot5hosting services. They are pretty good all these days until my account got transitioned to a new v3 platform. Earlier, my account was on vDeck v1.0. I had a real bad transition experience to new platform. I use my site mainly for blogging and ‘WordPress‘ is the blogging solution product. All these days, I was using WordPress v2.0.2 without any issues. Since dot5hosting was migrating me to a new platform, thought of upgrading wordpress to v2.3.2. To my bad, I had too many issues with vDeck v3.0 and then a hard time migrating to new version of WordPress. In the process of migration, my previous posts db got corrupted and I was able to backup only the posts. Because of this I lost all the visitor comments. I am glad that WordPress v2.3.2 supports xml format to backup db as well as to restore it.
Now I am taking the backup of my data on a weekly basis into a local disk than to rely on dot5hosting backup. Every now and then I get to hear about the server downtime from my friends. Seriously considering to move to a new hosting service provider. I will give one more chance & evaluate the performance of dot5hosting for a couple more months before moving away. Hope they get better and things get pretty stable on the new platform.
