ok i'm at a sort of junction and really don't know what to do but i need to make decisions quickly.
Basically, one of my sites have out grown VPS and i want to move over to a dedicated host. What i've done is contacted a few and i was making excellent progress with rackspace. I'd agreed on a spec and everything else was fine until i got the contract to sign, there is a 12 month recurrsing billing so i thought i'd find out what happens if i don't need the service anymore after a couple months... i have to pay for the rest of months as well as a cancellation fee... ok fair enough i have no other problem but what if for some reason traffic goes down on my site, so does revenue? I don't wanna have some hefty bill to pay. So am really pondering about whether i should go ahead or not... I've even shown a bit of interest in other hosts now, had a look at Inmotion and fast host but i don't know what to do here....
has anyone had experience with fasthost and inmotion... please share your thoughts on these hosts and what you think i should do... rackspace is really good i've had detailed feedback from one of their customers who says he's been with them for 4+ years with no problem so i'd wanna use them but this billing and the potential of revenue colapse, leaving me to foot the bill is a bit of a staggering thought.
thanks for any insights.
