Changing Hosts Again

Wednesday, January 18th, 2017 2 comments

I know I just did this less than 2 years ago, but I have changed hosts for this site again.

The host that I moved to was great for the first few months, but after that the service became unreliable.  I moved all of my sites to that hosts as the domains came up for renewal. It wasn’t until I had already moved some of them that the issues arose.  I think the company was bought out by a larger company around this time.  If I recall, it took over a month to move my last site due to some bug and they were swamped with so many tickets they couldn’t get to mine quickly. Once the sites were up, they ran smoothly until last fall when the sites started going down. It’t not just this blog, it’s my podcasts that are unavailable for long periods of time.

As much of a pain as it will be to move 6 sites, I’m going to bite the bullet and try to move them all over the next couple of weeks. This site seems to load so much faster than it did before. Hopefully, it’ll be reliable.  The host has a lot of good reviews online, but so did the other one.

Here’s hoping I won’t have to do this again anytime soon.

You probably didn’t notice, but the site has been down for the past 3 weeks or so.  I decided to move all of my domain registrations and hosting accounts to a new company, because the costs were getting out of hand at the old company.  This domain was set to expire on August 2, so I transferred it over to the new company a few days in advance.  I didn’t back up my site the way I should have, so I thought it was going to be a pain to re-create it in its new home.  I turned out not to be so bad at all.  I delayed it for a while, but then I realized I needed to go ahead and get started on it so I can continue my streak of having at least 1 post per month for the past 11 years.

I’ll spend the next few weeks getting everything running the way it used to, the best I can remember it.  I may take this opportunity to make some changes.  Hopefully, I’ll make more frequent updates.  Hopefully, nothing broke and everyone is actually seeing this. 🙂
