Six Hosting Companies Most Reliable Hoster in May

Sometimes you just stumble upon a good story. I had gone to Netcraft to see what it was reporting for some hosted domains I manage and I saw this headline. I'm pleased to see that many of the hosts are ones that I and my friends use and recommend. In fact, Rackspace is on of the hosts that On Computers uses and they ranked a very respectable second.

The six-way tie is a first for the reliability survey, as three and even four providers have shared the top position in the past. The showing reflects a strong month for hosting reliability, as the winners each had just 0.01 percent of their DNS responses fail, just a hair short of a perfect showing. All six companies have finished atop the survey at least once previously.

What is also neat is that among the top hosts this month. all use Linux and FreeBSD. Want to know who they are? You'll have to read the article to find out.

Now if Blogger were only as realiable. Then again the price is right. (Blogger has been out to sluggish the past 24 hours so if you don't see us posting much it is because there have been serious technical difficulties.) Fortunately the actual blog at seems to have remained up.
