Web Design / Hosting Woes

If anyone has ever scrolled all the way to the bottom of my blog, they would have seen a link to my web design website. I'm not so much into doing that anymore but I do still provide hosting to my few clients that are mainly friends. Well recently they seem to be dropping like flies, one of them canceled her payments on paypal and wants to let her site go. Another one of my friends who has 3 sites hosted with me is terrible to get my monthly payments out of.

Two others pay me annually so they are great but the problem lies that I pay for the full hosting monthly myself and I'm finding it harder and harder to come up with $20 a month for this extra expense that is really other peoples service. Yes I use a portion of it for my own personal online storage and my small site but still paying $20 a month is ridiculous for what I use it for.

I'm ready to send my friend who has the 3 sites to Godaddy and see how long he keeps his sites up and running with them with how he likes to pay.

Then its just a matter of how to get the other 2 that I host over to another host, but since they paid me in full for a year back in March its my responsibility to make it a smooth transition without them having to pay more SIGH.

I just don't know how I'm going to handle this because my bills are piling up, I don't have that money anymore to put out to move them. I suppose I can try and hold out till their renewal time is up and have them do the transition then.

I just really want to be done with web design. This whole blog designing I'm liking but beyond that NAH.

So heres the deal if you need hosting and paying between $2.95 and $6.95 sounds fair, check my site out. If I can get more people to host with me then I can justify the $20 a month.

You get way personal customer service from me and the company that has the servers are great with their response time to issues and they are right here in Orlando.

Shoot me a line if your interested.
