Ubuntu Shared Web Hosting (Minus the Ubuntu)

An outfit calling itself “WebNetHosting” promotes the following web hosting plans on its website:

Ubuntu Shared Web Hosting -- Except it's Not Available

But when I contacted a representative to sign up for service, I was told that “Ubuntu is not available in shared hosting plans. Ubuntu is only available on a dedicated server.”

Thirty years ago, my dad went to get a TV advertised in the paper for the low, low price of $99. Oh, we don’t have that TV in stock, the friendly clerk advised, but we do have this model right over here….

Technology changes, but the human element remains.
