I don't know what is your current host, but if you calculate it this way, 99.9% uptime give you host approximately 10 minutes downtime per week
Now, I know that several of our servers haven't gone down fore several weeks, while some other had a reboot in the last week.
It isn't that hard to keep a server up if:
- You know how to configure it
- You know how to solve problems online
- You are not running NT
Of course, some hosts just went in the business without any knowledge because they smelled some cash. Others know what theya re doing and are doing it because they like it. I can't say those hosts are better, because I would say that we are the best :p
Anyway, in general, you shouldn't generalize your bad experiences... I knkow some hosts are bad, I had some before... but some stands out of the crowd and offer good services.
