Did you know that you can get a free month of web hosting for your leased server when moving from a different provider? ThePlanet.com has a great special that applies one free month to your account when you move to ThePlanet.com from a different web host. All you need to do is to show your last invoice from the other web host and you instantly save money.
This is great as it gives you an entire month of time to fully customize your web server and then move all the websites over. The last time I moved a server over from Softlayer to ThePlanet.com I was actually able to time the entire thing in a way that I probably saved $150 or so in web hosting fees. It was quite some work as I had to move about 45 websites to the new server, but I did it all on one single weekend and was able to cancel the old server before a new billing period started. Good stuff.
That was during summer of 2007 and the server at ThePlanet.com has been good for me (and my websites). Great uptime and good support from the folks at ThePlanet.com.
