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.

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.

After parking some of my larger websites on Godaddy's Dedicated Servers about a month ago. I have found where Godaddy is weak. To say the least By Nov 1st I plan to shutdown my godaddy Dedicated Server, and move them to a colocated box with a local Data Center here in Houston.

Recently I moved a few of my clients to Godaddy. Even though I hear lots of bad things about godaddy, my websites are running faster than they had been running on HostMySite. Turns out that this speed increase might have more to do with PING times than the hardware they were hosted on.

If you have found this blog post, the chances are you have already searched the web for hours trying to figure this out. Running a single website on godaddy is not a problem. but once you start running multiple asp.net websites on your godaddy hosting account, and they all use custom 404 handling as part of URL rewriting you will run into problems. Here is how I made it work.
