Storage, baby!

So, let us fiddle while Rome burns, not necessarily because it is the right thing to do, but rather because it is a better choice than just watching the city disintegrate, yes? Yes!

I got my webhosting bill in my email today. I’m always reminded of how much I enjoy the extra bandwidth and storage I have with them when it comes. See, I use Dreamhost, and while they are not the cheapest hosting solution out there, I find that they are the best for my purposes: multiple blogs, pictures, the blogs of my family members, more pictures, lots of blog posts and yet more pictures. I’ve uploaded probably thousands of shots over my blogging career, and I’m still not near my capacity. And they add more storage every month!

But you know, space may not be your biggest concern in a host. Maybe you need 99.99 percent up time, or you need blazing fast loads. Umm, that does sound nice, doesn’t it? *snap fingers in front of dazed face* Where was I? Oh yes, weighing up time and speed against huge amounts of storage. What if you don’t want to decide? What if you I want it all? Or what if you want one domain, you know you only ever want one domain, but you want that domain free forever. Do you really have the time and inclination to go to each of the hosts out there and investigate their pricing and service? No way! You will do what I did: ask for recommendations and pick from the ones your friends use. But if you are smart, you will also read the reviews at WebHostingGeeks, because they have done your homework for you.

Except maybe, they might not have guessed exactly how much photo space a knitter really needs. Especially a knitter with a bunch of really cute kids.
