Bad Mojo | Extraordinary Business

I have had a hosting provider for a number of years (Aplus.net, now a Deluxe Company) who had been highly recommended as one of the best website hosting providers according to C|Net.com.  While the service initially was fine, over time the company was purchased and repurchased, servers were upgraded and I, of course, upgraded my website several times.  After several years, I began to notice changes – the website wasn’t as stable as it once had been, emails were not being handled correctly and technical support was slower and less capable.  Remarkably, their 99% uptime guarantee is gone from their website as well.  I began to have one of those “bad mojo” feelings about this relationship.  Incidentally, if you are reading this post on the home page of the company website, instead of the site, it has everything to do with the site not being properly set up.
