Jace Herring * Bloghosts
Bloghosts shut down on January 1 or so. They were CrabAppleLane’s former host. For the most part, they were a pleasure to do business with. Jace Herring was the driving force behind it. His support was very good. So good, in fact, that I signed up for another year back in July and I also recommended Bloghosts to a few other people. He offered full service hosting aimed at the blogging community, including domain registration and blog software installation. Thankfully, I didn’t need those services. Unfortunately, it seemed to make sense at the time for the two people I sent his way, my sister and an old friend. Bloghosts announced their decision to close a good couple of months before they actually did and I thought that was pretty good of them. It gave us a chance to find other accommodations. I moved all of my files to a new host the weekend I read his announcement and gave him back that server space.
Support has since dried up. He has not responded to any of my emails. He owes me money for the unused portion of the service I paid for. He also doesn’t respond to requests for transferring domains in all cases although he has in some cases. My sister and my old friend will be able to get their domains back in a couple of months when Bloghosts lets them lapse assuming no one gets to them first. What a pain. The letter I’ve been sending to him at least once a week is here.
Jace is a young guy based on what I’ve read. Unfortunately for him, internet search engines will show him to be a bad person to do business with for a long time to come if he doesn’t start rectifying things. I really don’t have a problem with that.
