Moving Yet Again
So last year I jumped ship after IX Web Hosting was bought out by EIG, and the new owners decided to shut down IX and migrate everyone to Site5. I felt uncomfortable with this new hosting provider, and decided to find someone else. At the time. SiteGround seemed like an attractive option, and so I migrated my websites to their servers.
Well, it’s been nearly a year and the renewal fee for SiteGround is somewhat more expensive than I’m willing to pay. Keep in mind, I don’t make a dime off of any of my websites. They are just hobbies. For this reason, pricing is a seriously important factor to me.
And that brings us to DreamHost. They aren’t owned by EIG (yet) and they currently have a very reasonable sale price ($6/month) on their unlimited shared hosting plan. Though I’m not usually a gambling man, I paid for three years of service, and I suppose we’ll just have to see how this plays out.
Actually, I sort of already know how it’s going to play out. You see, I also have a third site that I use for posting recipes. I’ve already had a successful migration of that site, and now that I know a little more about what I’m doing, I’ll proceed with the migration of Flush Twice and mBlip in a few days.
Anyway, expect a service interruption this week for Flush Twice and mBlip.
Oh, and I’ll be able to put the “www” back in front of the web address again. It’s the little things…
