Hosting

One of the major problems I see in Korea is the complete lack of remotely decent hosting.

Admittedly finding a host in the UK or US is hard, but here it’s impossible. Really.

The leading Korean registrar inames offers a “complete solution” where it doesn’t even offer advanced DNS management. So I can’t add an A name record for a subdomain. It’s just completely featureless. You’re lucky if PHP works on your FTP space.

Thank god (for want of another expression, as I don’t believe god exists) for Dreamhost. I’m now hosting more and more of the company services on my own account!

Whoever is remotely interested in Web stuff in Korea has some serious stumbling blocks to contend with.
