hosting

It’s been 5 long and blissfully problem-free years, but now it’s time to find a new host for persephone.cfrq.net. For various unimportant reasons, my server needs to move out of the server room it’s been hiding in. I have a few options:

  • see if I can find another free host. Unlikely.
  • follow Reid’s footsteps and switch home ISPs to one that allows servers. He’s had a lot of problems with that over the years, but I’ll consider it.
  • Move to a virtual server provider (e.g. Linode or Tektonic). I already have a Tektonic VPS, but now we’re talking about real money ($15-$20 per month).

I may have to evict some of my high-resource tenants in the process, which sucks… Still, I can hardly complain, having found free hosting in one place or another for about 15 years now!!!

    I’m looking at moving my two domains (third-bit.com and streetknit.ca) off the aging Linux box in Jonah’s machine room, and onto Dreamhost or something similar —- if you come across any good deals, I’d be grateful for a ping (and I’ll ping back if I find any).

    What are your bandwidth and storage needs? I’m happy to add more virtual hosts to http://www.flopcat.org… my ISP is quite happy with servers.

    It’s astounding, time is fleeting….

    Worse, I think of August as the 7th month of the year because I think of Aug 1st as mid-summer. In fact of course it is the 8th month so the end of the year is coming up sooner than I am ready for…
