Wizbang notes that you have until January 21st to sign up for three years of free hosting at 1&1.
This is the deal that MO took advantage of to escape from BlogSpot. I know it seems too good to be true. I signed up in October, and not a problem yet, though.
I had to blunder my way through the MovableType setup, but if I can do it, anyone can do it. I also believe that Wizbang has a number of readers who have offered to help with setups.
One afternoon I had trouble posting, but otherwise it’s been rock solid. The interface doesn’t seem to be the most friendly, but I’ve never had a different server, so I don’t have anything to compare it to. Besides, once you’re set up you don’t have to look at it again.
If you’re looking for cheap hosting, it doesn’t get any cheaper than this.
