Well it has come time to bring this blog to a close; I have enjoyed nearly three years of trouble-free service from Dathorn, and would still highly recommend them to anyone who wants rock-solid reliable hosting. Unfortunately my budget requires that I trim some excess, and with three hosting accounts currently, one had to go. I had to choose my Dathorn account because it was the easiest to consolidate into my other accounts - one is a VPS with multiple BG processes, and the other has multiple logins for sites for my friends and family, whereas Dathorn just had the "core" of my site and email hosting.
I actually found it hard to press that "Submit" button on my cancellation ticket, that's how much I've enjoyed my service with Dathorn. So in closing, let me restate that I have had nothing but good things to say about them in my three years of service with them, and that I will still recommend them to anyone who asks. Thanks Andrew, and maybe one day my budget will allow me to do business with you again!
