New digs

I just fin­ished the most pain­less serv­er tran­si­tion I’ve ever expe­ri­enced.

My host­ing deal with godad­dy was about to renew, so I looked around for anoth­er deal, and I end­ed up going with bluehost.com. Here’s the vitals:

  • 300 Giga­byte Host­ing Space
  • Host Unlim­it­ed Domains
  • 2,500 POP/Imap Email Accounts
  • 3,000 GIGS of Trans­fer
  • SSH (Secure Shell), SSL, FTP, Stats
  • CGI, Ruby (RoR), Perl, PHP, MySQL

$7.95/month when you buy a year. $6.95 if you buy two years.

I used Trans­mit (www.panic.com) to syn­chro­nize all files from my old host to a local fold­er, and then just syn­chro­nized from the local fold­er to my new host!

Both hosts offer php­MyAd­min, so it was easy to export my data from one host and import to the oth­er.

Done with­in a few hours.
