It’s almost been a year since I first set up this site (look out for a celebratory anniversary post soon!), so I’m also coming to the end of my current hosting deal and I’ve been shopping around to see if I can get a better deal. I’m very frugal. I got a very good deal on my first year of hosting, but they put the price up for renewals, and if I can get an equivalent service elsewhere for cheaper than I’m not going to hang around. If I do change to someone else then, shock horror, this site may be inaccessible for a short while! I feel your pain. Apparently the maximum amount of time it could be unavailable for is about two days, so it’s not too long. I think if I do it right I’ll actually be able to make the change seamlessly, but I haven’t done it before, so who knows? So this post is a bit of a heads up, if over the next week or so the site is unavailable, now you know why. Of course, this post will be of no use to those unfortunate souls who come across my site while it’s offline.
Update (27/09/2011): I have now changed host! Hopefully I’ve moved everything across correctly, it seems to be working OK at the moment, so fingers crossed!
