I'd like to back up my home computer to someplace offsite on the cheap, preferably using rsync. I used bluehost for years, but they must have changed their policies because my account was recently suspended and sure enough the agreement said it couldn't be used for backups.
Any recommendations? I could go with Amazon S3, but I really prefer to use rsync.
I like hostgator because you can pay by the month. I think that bluehost and most of the rest of them make you pay by the quarter to get a good price. Like bluehost, Hostgator has a tremendous forum if you have any questions. 24/7 phone support.
Carbonite looks interesting, but nobody is going to give unlimited storage out without some fee, elsewise people like me will dump their multi terabyte RAID arrays onto their service for archival purposes. I wonder where their hidden costs are.
I'd use them with some standard backup system, like removable hard disks, DVDs, tape, etc.
I've paid in blood for using a single backup method (as opposed to multiple ways), and even though it was tested, some unexpected glitch made the restore problematic even though all the pre-tests worked fine.
