Moving to the Cloud

South of Dallas has officially moved off of my own machine sitting in a rack at my office, to a shared host at Dream Host.  the setup was relatively easy, although apparently it would have been even easier if I had known less about DNS.  The biggest hang up in the transition was getting the content over, but even then I outsmarted myself (another day).

Dream Host’s price can’t be beat, $1.98 per month with Shell access, FTP, SFTP, unlimited domains/subdomains and all the MySQL databases I care to use.  Bandwidth and storage are also theoretically unlimited but I’m sure that’s not exactly true, more like they haven’t set a limit, but if I use too much they’ll let me know.

So we’ll see how it goes.
