As some of you might have noticed my website and blog were down for a few days between Sep 28, 2010 - Sep 30, 2010. Both my website and my client's are hosted on my colocated server, that WAS colocated at Acronoc's Houston Datacenter. To make a long story short my server is now colocated with Internap.

Most webmasters and server admins are relatively clueless as to what makes email really run. Recently I was forced to migrate all my websites to new IPs. I knew I was going to take a hit for this but I didn't realize how much. This whole experience have given me a new perspective on how to get into yahoo's inbox with your bulk emails and newsletters.

Today I went through getting one of my new clients setup on the Feedback Loop with the major ISPs. Most of the them came back saying I was approved to their feedback loop system, but one of them said I was not approved because I was found on an blacklist. This is not something you want to see. Allow me to explain.

If you are thinking about getting a dedicated server with Godaddy because of their cheap prices, I understand. But how far will their server really take you? After dealing with performance issues with godaddy with another client, I build my own server and colocated it. Then I did some benchmarks comparing the two. Huge difference. Click read to see the bench marks.

For years I setup my clients with shared hosting account with either HostMySite ( Hosting.com ) or Godaddy. I stayed clear of colocating for several reasons, cost, and what if it breaks. Well I finally got the confidence to colocate my own rack server, and I will say its one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Today was proud day for me. I colocated my first rack server in a datacenter. The guys at the datacenter were very helpful. If anyone is needing to colocate a server in Houston I highly recommend Acronoc.
