VERY Negative Review – cloud9hosting.com

Mmm.. Yeah. Wish some  reviews had come up when I originally researched this company 5 months ago. I host a lot of sites for customers and try to spread them out – so I have a LOT of experience with different providers. I have around 40 different server accounts from VPS setups to shared accounts. I know my hosting. BUT, needed a new one, so ran across this company. Reasonable pricing and seemed to ME I had heard good things...

The Hazards of Employees and Contractors

It’s a double-edged sword. You need to grow. To grow, you need to be able to spend more time finding new customers. When you grow, you need to spend more time doing the work. So the quick answer?

So after a few years of using quite a bit of contract help for our daily operations, I pulled the plug on most of it on Dec 1.
