Trying to log on to Network Solutions.

Their web site is running in treacle. It's so slow, it takes several minutes just for the home page to come up. And when I try to log in to manage my account, it sits there doing nothing for a long time, and eventually times out.

I don't know what their problem is. I've gone to Facebook to get info (see, there *is* a use for Facebook!) and it seems I'm not the only one to have experienced this problem.

One of the services that they offer is web hosting. If I'd been thinking of using that service (I wasn't) I'd be looking elsewhere.

What Network Solutions need right now, is a solution for their network.

On a related note, I got some spam from a UK company offering hosting. Obviously I'm not likely to sign up with anyone who thinks that spam is a good idea, but I did email them to find out about costs, so I could compare with what I'm currently paying.

They are quite a lot cheaper.

For 100 mbit, 13 IP addresses, half a rack and 4 amps, I'm quoted £565 per month. I'll put that to my current suppliers, see what they say.
