Eric Burns recently mentioned that he is moving Websnark away from pair over to Talk About Comics, because staying at pair was prohibitively expensive.

pair is expensive. But they are a damn good host, and I don’t know that I want to give them up. I don’t know what “weird troubles” Eric was having, but my site has barely had so much as a hiccup in the three years I’ve owned pixelscribbles.com. (Then again, it’s not like I get the kind of traffic he does. Still, Keenspot and Sluggy use pair…)

As Sean says, you get what you pay for, and for now, I’m leery of shifting to a less expensive host that might, oh, accidentally lose all my data.

The one thing that bugs me is the database access issue I’ve mentioned previously. We’ll see what happens when I shift to WordPress.
