This argument is a little fallacious. If I understand the relationship here, iFastNet is selling hosting services to Admin (with permission to resell said hosting services). Admin then sells (and offers free ad-driven hosting services) to us – I may be mistaken, but that’s as I understand it. Feel free to correct me.
It’s rarely the case in IT that this ‘subcontract’ circumstance absolves anyone of responsibility. For example, if your internet went down for a week because your ISP’s backhaul went down, would it not be your ISP’s fault for choosing a sub quality backhaul? There is an understood inheritance of responsibility because each service provider has the responsibility to choose their service providers wisely in a way that is best for their customers. In the same way, Admin is responsible for those things caused by iFastNet simply because he continues to use them. There is no absolution here, nor would there be in any other healthy IT arrangement.
That said, bad habits and fallacious acceptance runs rampant in some of the less disciplined IT world. It’s easy to pass on blame, and even easier to write off a one-time occurrence as a freak event never to happen again to ease one self away from the hassle of changing service providers. This is true for Admin just as it is for us. I am guilty of this too, as this kept me from moving my website for a long time. I kept thinking 'this is a one time fluke, it won’t happen again!" until it did.
I do not wish to speak ill of Admin. I appreciate the free tier, and I disabled my ad-blocker to help support it. Plus, I have to say that since recreating my account on the new server, it’s been great. Admin himself suggested I try this, so props to him for sure. But, if only for academic purposes, I felt the need to point this out – feel free to disagree, but it’s as I see it.
