If you can read this, then the DNS server in your part of the interweb has updated to show the new home of DDoE. Thanks to everyone for the support, help, and suggestions. I ended up at Digital Ocean for a webhost, but there’s still a lot of work to do. For now I can make new posts (and by ‘I’, of course I mean ‘Jeff’), you can comment, and Google and can index.
Digital Ocean seems fine. I’m learning a lot about servers. The downside is that it costs a lot more than I was paying. DDoE is a labor of love for me. For you, that means you don’t always get posts as frequently as you might like (sometimes I fall out of love with it). But even love has a price and I’m feeling less amorous at these rates than I did with shared hosting.
All this means is that I’m going to do some money grubbing to pay the hosting costs (not my strong suit). I have affiliate ads now, but they don’t pay much. So I’ll be replacing them with some fixed-fee ads. I’ll also be pimping some products, selling RSS feed ads, and some other stuff. Reading and commenting will always be free, of course, because I’m not a douche.
Thanks for your patience over the last few weeks. Please use the comments on this post if the website seems slow or otherwise messed up. This is my first foray into running my own server, so I had to guess at how much RAM and stuff I’d need. If things feel laggy, I may need to adjust. Don’t forget, you can always email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to give me what-for.
