That’s us live on a new server!

My favourite village name, BitchfieldAbout 95% sure, that this website has moved over to another server! Still using the same host, mainly since I’ve been with them for so long! About 99% of the time, the support they give you, is second to none!

So now, let’s hope, we have much less downtime… But let’s see what happens!

Looking for a new host…

Think it’s time to give me with my current host! Been with them since 2003. But in the last number of weeks, my website has been going off-line at least 15+ times, a day for around 5 minutes at a time.

All they keep telling me to upgrade to WordPress Hosting plan. Which is no use to me at all, since I need access to more than one database! One to host the main part of this website, then another host Zenphoto, also need subdomains. So why would I pay more, but get less?!?!?

At least during this lockdown, I’ve got time to sort things like this out!

So here is list of the main things I need:-

  • Free Website Statistics (AWStats) – Use them for my photos stats
  • Free SSL Certificate (Let’s Encrypt)
  • FTP access with at least of support for SFTP and SCP
  • At least 50 GB of hosting space
  • PHP at least version 7.5
  • Need at least 5 subdomains
  • Need to be Linux server
  • Unmetered traffic
  • Also want 99.9% Uptime Guarantee! (So not going off-line around every hour, like my current host)

Sure I have missed things, they are main ones!

P.S. My website went off-line at least 3 times, while just doing this blog post! That’s how bad it’s got!!

Think the website is back to normal!

I am sure, that my website is running 100% again!

Oh and big thanks to someone from 34sp.com emailing at me 8:00pm, last night, just to check that it was still running, like it should! Doubt many other hosts, would do that!
