2019-01-22 Switching Hosts

Post by Matt »

Earth Naturists is switching hosts. Yes again...

This time it's not because I'm unhappy with our current host but because I am opting for a cheaper solution as a way of saving money in 2019 and going forward hopefully.

I've decided to stop paying for VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting which is most expensive, so I'm moving my websites to a shared hosting account with a new host. This website isn't big enough or busy enough to justify having it on a VPS (Virtual Private Server), should we outgrow shared hosting down the road I'll look at going back to a VPS or dedicated server.

So at 9pm tonight I'm going to:
  • Disable this site.
  • Backup the website files & database.
  • Copy the files to a new server & test it.
  • Change the IP of earthnaturists.com to the new server.
  • Reply to this topic when the server move is completed.

I forgot to move the website last night so I moved it this morning. Working on fixing up the SSL cert now.
