Because FLOSS is handy, isn’t it?

Switch to self-hosted blog

Posted by isilanes on February 25, 2008

This blog moves to: handyfloss.net.

This weekend I signed up for a hosting service with DreamHost. By the way, I used a promo code from dh.promo-codes.us.

Along with the hosting, I obtained a free domain, which allows me for a shorter blog name, which is: handyfloss.net.

I am in the process of moving my stuff there. Moving the posts and comments was easy. Probably statistics are not transferable (maybe it wouldn’t make sense, anyway), and other things like widgets and the blogroll seem to have to be moved by hand. Oh, and obviously I have to work with the theme (the most important thing in any web :^)

I will not write here anymore (I’ll leave it behind, as I left isilanes.blogspot.com), so you will be able to follow my new posts at handyfloss.net. Expect theme/widget/whatever changes there for a while, until I settle down a bit. It was fun to be here at WordPress.com, and I hope the fun goes on with the WordPress.org software (the one that powers my handyfloss.net blog) on DreamHost (or anywhere else).

See you there!

    Links updated!🙂

    Looking forward to hearing about your experience with DreamHost, as it will probably be my hosting of choice when I finish my current contract with 1and1.es or if I get short of monthly BW…

    My best wishes for the new blog!🙂

    Regards

    ¡Gracias!

    DreamHost provides insane amounts of monthly bandwidth and disk storage for a faily low price, so it looks very attractive. I hope their instantaneous BW (the speed by which their pages are loaded) is also high, which is not necessarily true. So far, no complain. People also criticize DH for its too high downtimes… Time will tell, but I am quite optimistic.

    Thanks for the links and the support! I wish the blog were at the level of the readers :^)
