I am in the process of having this blog moved to its own server. I am expecting the migration to be finalized at some point today. I am hopeful that no comments or blog posts will be lost, but I cannot guarantee that it will be a seamless transition.
I use Automattic’s Vaultpress for frequent site backups, so I should not lose anything, but you never know. Just wanted to give you a head’s up in case you notice anything funky over the next several hours.
I was considering doing the same but after some research came to the conclusion that running a dedicated server takes technical knowledge, well-beyond using a typical shared-server and enough for me to wait a while longer.
Mind sharing what hosting company you’re going to be using ? Will that company or someone else be managing/looking after the server for you ?
I am using Liquid Web and they will be fully managing it for me.
ah gotcha, thanks. Looks like the migration is going well- don’t see any problems here !
Elliot, so were you on a VPS with LW or their shared plan? I can’t imagine that you’ve been on a shared plan this entire time with the volume that you receive.
Liquidweb is simply awesome. Their support team really takes care of everything.
I would think one of their VPS plans would be sufficient for this blog?
