New Web Host

Well, I did it. I switched web hosts. The old one (goDaddy) was just so bogged down that my website took forEVER to load and when I contacted their tech support, they wouldn’t do anything about it. Instead, they said the problem was with my website. Funny, since I hadn’t changed anything functionality-wise on my site when it was still on goDaddy (both prior and after to it starting to go downhill) AND it loads fine with the new web host. Hmm…

Anyways, it was a lot of work, so I am very thankful that Greg was able to help me recreate the database and keep all my posts and comments intact. The only thing that didn’t move over were the post categories. Minor details. Although since I have over 800 posts (yikes!) I don’t know when I will have the time to retroactively categorize the older ones.

I am just so excited for the instant load-time improvement I am seeing on my new host (Dreamhost)! Hooray!

    Me too. I don’t have to pull up your site and then check five other sites while I wait for yours to load. Way to go! (And Greg–love the haircut. Looks great!)
