I think one of our faculty uses Hover for personal stuff, but haven’t had a chance to ask him yet.
I WILL NOT touch GoDaddy! I’ve had direct bad experiences with them trying to move something.
And my biggest beef with Network Solutions is 2 parts:
Part 1 is they don’t seem to chase down problems that I can’t access, like when a trace route shows the nearest router to their datacenter is having issues, and they won’t contact that company. I’ve looked and can’t find contact info to do it myself. The only router in the path “owned” by a small company and routinely an issue.
Part 2 is lack of willingness to embrace Let’s Encrypt. They will sell you the high dollar ecommerce level of encryption, but not everyone needs this level. And they are really expensive for this encryption. A sales person actually made it to my phone one day trying to sell me their encryption, he got an ear full that day. No reason they can’t just set the servers up to allow Let’s Encrypt, other than greed. If I was doing ecommerce I would certainly be happy to pay for the best, lawsuits are expensive and encryption cheap compared.
Hope NS reads this, they can figure out who I am and contact me. I have a personal and work website with them as well and the registrar for both. Fix both things and I’ll be happy.
