Question: Should I use a web host if their site doesn’t have any updates for years?
Answer: If the web host you are considering doesn’t have a blog, news update, or anything new on their site in the last 12 months. You should not consider this web host. A web host that is actively engaged with their customer is a good web host.
Any web host that doesn’t have any news, blog entry, or anything new on their site for months. Is showing signs of a zombie web host. Zombie web host = will take your money but good luck getting a reply to your trouble ticket.
A normal web host will have a few news articles every few months. This can range from announcements to exciting news about something they just did. A web host that doesn’t have any updates for a whole year is a major NO NO.
