Not long ago, back at the end of March, I wrote an article in which I talked about my recent Web Hosting Experience. To make a long story short, I had been hosting with HostGator, and had some issues with their hosting, and thus I decided to return to my old hosting company, Servint.
To be honest, ServInt really offered me bulletproof hosting the entire time that I was with them. My reasons for leaving were kind of stupid, in retrospect. I left because:
- HostGator was cheaper
- I felt I didn’t have the technical skills necessary to manage a server at ServInt
Really, these reasons were not good reasons to leave a good hosting company. But, I learned my lesson, and now I am back with ServInt. It would take a lot to make me consider leaving again!
Yesterday, I got a surprise. My son came to see me, and he had a package in hand. I asked what it was, and he said it was a package that had been sent to me from the States. I am an American, but I have lived in the Philippines for the past 12 years. Hmm.. I thought, and could not think of anybody who would be sending me a package. I had not ordered anything. Nothing was expected for deliver, so I was really curious when I opened the package.
It was a nice t-shirt from ServInt! They also included a card that read:
We are thrilled to welcome you back into the ServInt family. Thank you for your trust, loyalty, and kind words!

Wow! What a nice gesture. I am shocked that they would go to the expense of shipping a t-shirt all the way to the Philippines!
Thank you so much, Lauren, and all of the ServInt team! I have been very happy since my return to ServInt. Yeah, it’s a few bucks more than I was spending, but the quality of service is well worth it!
Cheaper hosting is not necessarily any cheaper if you think about it. I make money from my websites, and just an hour or so of downtime each month would make up the price difference in lost ad revenue, sales revenue and such. Penny wise is almost always pound foolish!
I love the t-shirt, ServInt, and I sincerely thank you for that!
