Self hosting – scary stuff

I might disappear for a couple of days. I’m not running away or playing hide and seek with you, nor cowering in a dark cupboard (hopefully). I am however, attempting to go down the very scary self hosting route.

I have spent the best part of two hours marvelling over the confusing matters of php and domain transfers. Honestly, I’m non the wiser for it but I am a Glasgow girl, and I am stubborn so I will tackle this bugger and hopefully have a shiny, lovely new site for my troubles.

I’ve loved having look after me but the time has come to get more professional. For all my regular readers, worry not, my web address is still staying the same but might possibly go offline for a couple of days while I toil away and tear my hair out. My new hosting company Bluehost has assured me that the transfer process is easy peasy so we shall see.

I’d love to hear your experiences of going down the self hosting route. Was it worth the hassle? Was it a straight forward process or a total nightmare? Did you go grey in the process?

    Howdy! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering if you knew where
    I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment
    form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having problems finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Hey, I think your site might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Chrome, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer,
    it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, wonderful blog!

    The name of the author is Jere and he totally digs that title. My job is an workplace clerk. My wife doesn’t like it the way I do but what I really like executing is to foundation soar but I don’t have the time recently. California is exactly wherever my house is and I don’t program on altering it.

    The fantastic thing about on-line betting is that you don’t actually need to travel to casinos in order to gamble. There are a couple truly unusual issues about this game. Before you place your initial wager, you’re ahead by $75.
