We’ve moved!

After three years of The Writer’s Cookbook being hosted at JustHost, we’ve moved over to a new home at Krystal Hosting.

I’ve moved web hosts with other websites several times now, and it’s my least favourite part of having a website. However, it’s a necessary evil if you don’t want to pay a fortune for a hosting.

I gave Krystal a test run when I set up my author website a few weeks ago, and liked their style so decided to move The Writer’s Cookbook across, too.

There were a few teething problems—like not receiving the initial email to initiate the domain transfer the first time around—but once that was sorted, it was (fairly) smooth sailing.

I’m also proud to say that I moved the database and all the files and emails across myself with (almost) zero hiccups 🙂

It involved quite a bit of googling, a little bit of sulking, and some nudges from Boyfriend (he said he’d only help me if I tried myself first…he’s very much a teach someone to fish kind of guy, which I appreciated), but I got there in the end 🙂

Because everything has moved to a different server there may be a few teething problems, so if you encounter any issues, please, please drop me an email or a tweet letting me know.

There’s 185 published blog posts and 250 posts including drafts, so that’s a lot to keep track of!

Fingers crossed though, everything went as smoothly as I think it did and we won’t encounter any errors.

One thing I did learn is that I really need to do some housekeeping once in a while.

Not only did I still have the database for my old forum on JustHost, but I also still had the database for my online magazine, Heart of Glass, which closed in 2014!

Oh, and I had about 600 emails.

Every so often, a little bit of tidying up can make a whole lot of difference…

Now that I’ve achieved my main goal for this week, I’m off for an early night.

Later!
