@Growernick another great question. My mind goes to options that might be available… is this more a case of keeping all your bud in one basket? - Why should anyone have more than one host…? (maybe it’s my paranoid upbringing). I also ALWAYS buy EVERY domain related to my TLD (top level domain) (.com, .net, .info etc) and redirect to a main page - the ancillary pages look the same and can be hosted somewhere else in an extreme emergency.
To this very DAY - if all the cars are parked on one side of the street and not the other - I still hesitate for a moment before I “do what everyone else is doing”. Finding a reliable host is no easy task - I’ve had many - but I’ve learned to “interview” a live person before leaping from one host to another.
I currently split 60 domains over 3 hosts - I can move quickly if some harsh crap goes down. Again “paranoia” is NOT a good thing - but nor is loosing thousands in revenue because somebody else F’d up.
My life revolves around NOT relying on any ONE company/service to provide all my needs. I’ve had 2nd jobs that I didn’t need and just banked the extra $$$ - (ready for the unexpected at anytime.)
Seriously - it’s kinda an F’d up way to live - but - I’m usually not unpleasantly surprised when “stuff” goes sideways.
