Goodbye Yahoo! – welcome to a whole new

Filed under: — Martin @ 8:26 pm

It has been a long time – for more than 8 years I’ve been a loyal Yahoo! hosting service subscriber – but now it’s time for a change. It’s not only about bad and incompetent customer service and high prices – both wouldn’t have been enough to endure all the hassle of such a change. It’s just their poor servers. Yahoo! is just not capable of running current WordPress versions.. and after the old was hacked this has become a serious security issue I don’t want to accept anymore.

So let’s wave goodbye and welcome the new Metanet hosted

Please note: the RSS-Feed has changed as well and is now powered by Feedburner. So please update your RSS subscription to get all the exciting content coming soon! 😉


  1. Hurray for better hosting. Getting hacked however… I noticed you barely ever did the updates for WP… that’s one important thing to do since over 60% of all updates are security fixes 😉 Keep updating. And oh, yes, if you need someone to make you a nice and snazzy CSS file for your new blog… I’d be glad to do that.

  2. Thanks! Yes I will do the updates on a regular base now, that was the main reason to switch. And it’s just so much faster now as well.. not to mention the fact that I save almost 19$/month. I’m just an idiot for being so lazy and not to have done the migration much earlier.

    I’m gladly come back to your offer..Actually having done the switch to Mac I’m pretty positive that this will have a substantial impact on my motivation to get back a bit to webdesign. I just discovered Textmate – an astonishing texteditor which almost codes by itself 😉 Or do you have a better recommendation?

    But one thing I’d be really happy about would be some short mails if you discover some heavy english errors in my new posts – it’s so exhausting to write a post and knowing exactly that there are some swiss german “Holzfällerenglisch” idioms and clear other errors in it – but not knowing where they are 😉
