  • Moving back to Dedicated Server From Shared Hosting

    Last year I moved MoparStyle from a "Fully Managed Dedicated Server" (about $500 month) to "Deluxe Shared Hosting" ($20 month if prepaid for three years), when I could not find a buyer to take over the costs of server and software.

    While it was nice to save the $480 mo (after all Social Security is my only income now), it was not the best move - because of performance and limitations imposed by shared hosting.

    As such, I will be moving the site back onto a Fully Managed Dedicated Server by the end of October. The server is currently being setup for migration.

    My image posting solution was to go to Southern Star Hosting, to register the domain of for less than $10, and hosting for less than $5 a month. I then installed the Free Application Zen Photo with one click from my Control Panel. I have tens of thousands of my photo digitized, which in time I'll upload there to preserve from disaster, and access from anywhere. In the meantime it makes for a great place to host my forum photos - plus I can still install 24 more free applications on that site if I cared to.
