I transitioned over to the new domain host, and it was overall pretty seamless. I did have an issue getting the database working after I imported it, but thankfully the support at Hostinger is pretty amazing. I used their live support chat and someone responded quickly, and fixed an error they found and got my site back up and running for me.
Now to just start using the site more often to post my thoughts…
I got the notification that my web hosting was about to auto-renew soon. I started thinking about how little I use this website nowadays, and how it’s not quite worth almost $90 a year. However, that doesn’t mean that I want to totally do away with it either. I’d like to keep the hosting around in case I do find something to do with it, and barring that, a way to throw files up.
I began once again searching around for better hosting deals, and after a quick web search, I do believe I found one. This weekend, I will begin moving the site to a new hosting provider, Hostinger. If their standard pricing plans weren’t good enough, it seems that I have found them at a good time, with them having a hosting deal for 80 cents a month if you opt for a 3 year plan. Even if I don’t go for the 3 year deal, it’s still under $2 a month.
So, this will likely be my last post under the GoDaddy hosting.
