Well, back to Blogger.
I do have a domain name but some stupid Russian hacker got into my .htaccess site and is redirecting all my traffic to another domain. I think it's Russian as the domain redirect to a site with a .ru domain. Stupid hackers.
Of course, I've gone through great lengths to try and clean it up to no avail. I've stripped my site down to a basic, static HTML file and the redirect is still there. Yes, I've removed all .htaccess files and I'm still being redirected. Unfortunately I hosted my site with GoDaddy. Should never have done that. Apparently they have a history of this sort of thing happening and it happens at a lower level (server wise) than can be accessed by their customers.
So, I'll use Blogger for a while until I can figure out how I can try to fix things. One thing is for sure. I'll never use GoDaddy again. Nor will I recommend them to anybody. Sigh.
Just out of curiosity, and it seems a strange question to pose on a hosted/free blogger site, what hosting providers do you use?
