Moving Day

So waaaaaaay back in 2004 when I started this blog, I went with a particular webhost. They had a simple interface and charged a reasonable fee for their services.

On at least two occasions throughout the years, they have “upgraded” my plan with out asking me first, and both times they also increased the price.

Now, I can fully understand the logic behind their actions, the whole thing just struck me as shady and underhanded. If they had given me an option of downgrading services or something, I might have let it slide… but nope.

So, today’s project was to sign up with a new registrar, a new hosting service, and migrate all the websites to new hosting. All of which, strangely enough went off without any real problems.

(Small issue: apparently Frontier’s primary DNS server is on the fritz, so I couldn’t actually check the sites from home until I changed the DNS servers in the DHCP scope…)

Now, to cancel the old service… you have to call. OK, call them up, wait 25 minutes on hold, identify myself 3 different ways….and the cancellation team only works Mon-Fri on Eastern time.

Of course.

Bastards.
