Introducing: Shared Dedicated IP Addresses

We are happy to introduce a new service offered by TotalChoice Hosting! Dedicated IP addresses are now available to all clients on shared servers. Rather than sharing the same IP address with other websites on the same server, a dedicated IP will give your website and e-mail a unique IP address, adding an extra layer of security. With your own IP address you will not have to worry about someone else’s blacklisting affecting you.

The cost of this new service will be only $1 per month. For more information please visit:

Dns Server Migration :: /

We were just informed that the data center where our DNS server / is located is going to discontinue the facility. Since we are being forced to move our server, we are taking this opportunity to move the server into our own Data Center.

This migration is scheduled for May 25, 2013 after 11 pm.

If your domain is pointed to us using the above DNS Host Name you will need to take NO action. Your domain will continue to work after our migration to our new server. If you are using the DNS Server IP Address to point your domain name to us then you will be required to update the IP at your DNS registrar.

The new IP for this nameserver will be

We will be updating the forum thread located here as this process gets going. As always, our techs are available to attend any queries you may have.

Update on Network Upgrades

Hello TCH Gurus!

I would like to update everyone on the current status of our network upgrade announcement noted here.

We are proud to say that we have completed an estimated 60% of all our planned upgrades. There was a brief pause in our upgrade path as we stumbled on a coding
issue with our internal software.  The nasty critter has been fixed and we are going to start rolling out upgrades effective next weekend.

Once we determine the next upgrades, you can be assured we will follow our protocols and make the proper announcements.

Thank you for your support and it is a great day to be a TCH Guru!

Update: CISPA

Last week, on the same day that we blogged about what CISPA is, The House Of Representatives passed the bill (288-127) for the second time. Because of the huge amounts of lobbying money thrown at congress by corporations in favor of this bill, such as Google, it was expected to pass in The Senate. After it passed The House, CISPA was expected to go to the Senate, however to the surprise of most, The Senate said that they will not even consider voting on CISPA which dealt a huge blow to the bill and its supporters. However, Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairwoman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, left us with this statement: “We are currently drafting a bipartisan information sharing bill and will proceed as soon as we come to an agreement.”


As we mentioned in our last CISPA blog post, TotalChoice Hosting is against CISPA and all related bills because they would forever change the internet for the worse. This is why people need to continue to fight for internet freedoms without opposition and bills like PIPA and SOPA. Such bills would infringe on not only our rights, but our privacy. For everyone that advocated against the bill, whether it was through signing a petition, calling your local congressman, or spreading awareness, we here at TCH would like to thank you for protecting the internet as we know it! Through the power of the internet and by strength of numbers, we the people can be heard!
