DNN Hosting Issues Not Just Technical

Our friends and key hosting supplier PowerDNN wrote a cautionary blog post about DNN Evoq Cloud. There was a flurry of responses and a bit of drama attributed to it in DNN circles, and it prompted a followup post. There was further talk about that one. So lately in the DNN blogosphere it's not been business as usual, but it has been all about business. Here's what I mean.

First, I'll say I appreciated both blog posts. I respect PowerDNN's vast knowledge of DNN hosting. They really know what it takes to properly host a DNN website. So when they urge caution for people using DNN Evoq Cloud, I know it's because they understand the technology, and their explanations made sense to me. 

I can also see the business reason for these blogs. DNN Corporation has entered into the hosting business, and
so DNN Evoq Cloud prospects are PowerDNN prospects, and the two companies are now competitors. Wouldn't you show your advantages and show your competitor's disadvantages? It's just business.

If a client down the road demanded we built and managed their website on DNN Evoq Cloud, even after we told them about the cautions and costs, we'd probably do it, if at the end of the day it made economic sense to. It's just business.

But the ongoing plan here at Sprocket is to continue hosting our clients on PowerDNN servers. We agree with the explanations PowerDNN gave in their blogs, we think their support is great, and it makes economic sense for us to do so. All good business reasons.
