Moving and More Hosting Specials

By Tim Butler | Posted at 3:54 PM

Asisaid.com is the first account I am moving to my company's new web servers. Since it is serving as a guinea pig, it may act a bit strange for awhile. I'll use it to clear up any issues that might occur on “redcedar” before moving any other accounts over.

And speaking of accounts, I've added a few additional specials on hosting, offering very large chunks of server (up to about half a server at a time). Read all about it by clicking “Read More…” Let me know if you are interested! :)

Update (2008.07.27): I forgot that my blog depended on a second account's MySQL database (not its own), so it took me a bit longer to bring everything up than I hoped. But, now, hopefully it will be smooth sailing. My accounts are the hardest to move.

Hi everyone,
I promise not to make this a habit (Really! Please forgive me ahead of time), but I wanted to do one more run with the web hosting special, because I had an idea I found exciting after my previous posting. I hope this doesn't bug anyone, but feel free to let me know if I did. If anyone else wants to plug their services to balance things out from me, let me know.

My current server (the one these lists are on) is grandfathered in at a much better price than one could get it for today, I found out. With that in mind, rather than shutting it down (as I had planned) when I moved accounts over to the new server, it struck me that perhaps I should replace the hard disk and any other parts that might be in need of replacement and start it over fresh with just a few larger accounts on it that recognize that lower price, for those who would like something like a quarter or half server (like buying half a rotisserie chicken!).

So, I came up with two “semi-dedicated plans” for the soon to be “remodeled” server. My main goal for the server is to use it as a place to store some backups and be available for redundancy; as such, I expect only to have only a few accounts on it — meaning it will be fairly quiet and private on there, much more so than a normal non-dedicated hosting package (even my usual ones — and I am overly zealous on the idea of keeping the number of accounts on a server down). I would expect it will have less than 10 accounts — perhaps as few as two or three if a few of the XE30K, seen below, were put on it. None of the accounts are oversold, you would be entitled to use every last drop of space and bandwidth mentioned below. The soon-to-be-remodeled server is in Dallas, TX. I also have the older special deal plans below, the larger of which you could have in your pick of Dallas or Washington, DC (the new server), the smaller of which will only be in DC.

I could also work out something custom, like a plan that offered some space on both servers for extra redundancy or whatever other reason might amuse you.

Thanks everyone for bearing with me!

I mention the term “virtually unlimited” on a few things below. That's just to say, I realize nothing can be unlimited — there's bound to be a point where the server software won't do any more, or it causes things to jam up or whatever. But, if it doesn't cause problems, and I doubt anyone would add so many POP3 accounts that it did (etc.), then go at it. There won't be an arbitrary limit, and I'm not the type to inflict something like that on you later, just what it takes to make sure the server runs smoothly. Concerns? Let me know.
