So any good recommendations on a decent VPS host. I came across RapidVPS and VPSland but don't know much about them at the moment.This is not Lissanna, but it is my hosting account from which her blog is hosted.

I use vpsland for personal things, and I haven't had any issues that they didn't promptly fix. However, if you're starting out new there, their choice of OSes are dated. The latest ubuntu offering was from 2007. You can upgrade manually, but I really liked the rapid redeployment of various OSes. What more would you expect for like $15/mo though?Had my account there for several years after coming and going at about a dozen other places, YMMV of course.

Access has been restored as of 3:52PM EST, for now anyway.The site may be interrupted again in the future when transferring to a new host and the DNS entries are changed. Or if we get another /. effect.I am unhappy that this happened but at least this occurred when the site is still relatively new. Just means there is less to move when switching hosts. When I get the new hosting set up and start the transfer process I will get a splash page up with a link to the IP address. I would expect that to occur this weekend when I have more time to take care of such matters.In the end warning would have been nice but it would not have really mattered the same effect would have happened.To all of you who have navigated to the site while it was down and in the future if there are still problems, thank you for your interest. I will not speak for Lissanna but I am sure she will be happy to know of your interest in her blog. And to those who were able to have the page load we are also grateful of your interest. Expect more to come in the near future as we kick the tires of the blog software.
