    Apparently so! So it counts as a blip, but it's not as cut and dry as it seemed.
    can someone post a tech update? (new nameservers?)

    Sure. My study is complete. The winners are Seraphim Labs, Decker Services (different from the Decker Username on here!), cWahi, and IsMyWebsite. Now it's just Maintenance mode verifying that those providers are still up.

    Another/Final RLS Hosting Blip

    It seem to go all the way to the top of their site.

    While they were in the second section with fewer reporting rules, they were in fact a Paid host, so they need to be held to higher standards. We'll see how things develop in the next few hours / days.
    I'm getting another blip from RLS again. I'll admit, I haven't monitored them as tightly this last couple of months because I changed some of my design over to rely more heavily on my winners.

    But again the blip goes all the way to the top, so while I might retain my account with them for testing purposes, I think I need to pull them off the recommendation list. (I might have said that before, I'm getting forgetful!)

    cWahi outage!

    Damn, this is news. cWahi, one of the long running top two, is blipping on me. One time a while ago they did suffer an attack, so I will give them a few days to see what happens.

    Edit: They seem to be back, so maybe that was maintenance or a technical blip.

    And another blip again today. So we'll have to see how they do over the weekend.

    And they're back, and probably have been for some time -I wasn't really timing things.

    So overall, I don't think they're in too much trouble, these sound like minor things.

    I'm not sure I'd call two outages in a matter of days "minor things", but I guess it just depends on how long they lasted.

    Hi wswd.

    Both times the outages seemed to be fairly short, maybe even under half an hour. So I didn't want to completely sweep them under the rug. But "how long they lasted", they have been rock solid for my entire study except one DDOS attempt on them last year. I checked briefly and didn't see any big reports.

    Their overall company at the Crosswinds level has been up for some 10 years or more and the cWahi free brand I think dates to about 2006. So by any sense on the rating scale I use, they are doing fine.

    cWahi Data Breach

    cWahi got hacked, and many users including me had their entire files wiped! So that's unfortunate. Not sure it's enough to completely kick them off the chart, but it's certainly a red mark against them. (Remember this is a company durability site, manager issues are a different metric.)

    That's breaking news I would think. Have they released an estimate of how many people were affected?

    They can't handle basic server security, and it's not enough to knock them off the chart? Great news for some of the crappy hosts out there!

    I'm so/so on this. It depends on how they were actually hacked, but if it was over something stupid like insecure passwords/etc then yes they should be removed from the list.
