The web hosting world drives me crazy. It has been part of my businesses since I started in college and it has never been easy for me. Fortunately I have always had people smarter than myself to manage them for me (tim, dave & others). However, the time has come to make my life a little bit easier. I decided to buy another server and move all my personal sites (and a few other small sites) over to it with a managed domain, name server, email package, etc…all in one. I will lose some of the flexibility I have become accustomed to, but it will be worth it to not have to bother anyone to help me fix it.
So, why am I blogging about this? Well, because this may effect you. I spent the whole day today (well, yesterday now) setting up the server and moving about 10 domains over to it to test. One of them could have been yours, and hopefully you didn’t even notice because 95% of the process was entirely to easy. It’s amazing how much changes when you get stuck in an old system that just works. I’m glad I moved.
