You Can All Breath Easy Now
Saturday evening I went ahead and changed everything over. If Flush Twice was forwarding you to some hockey website in Canada for the past day or so, well, that’s just an unfortunate side effect of my rash decision making. Honestly, I could have left the old host in place until the DNS fully propagated, but I got a little overzealous and shut down operations on SiteGround shortly after things got up and running on DreamHost.
Keep in mind, SiteGround is a fine hosting provider. I just felt their renewal fee was more than I was willing to spend to host a couple of personal websites. If I had some serious commercial interests at stake and required timely customer support, I might have paid for that premium.
One group I will give a shout out to is the makers of “All-in-One WP Migration”. It’s well worth the $69 that I paid for the “unlimited” plugin, and let me tell you, it is a godsend! Even better, you can use it to make a backup of your site, and know that your site is fully backed up. I can redeploy my sites anywhere. It just overwrites any WordPress install with all the posts, media files, themes, and plugins fully in place.
So there you have it. We’re all moved into our new home, and the rent has been paid for the next three years.
Kudos and Promos
