Changing Web Hosts
received an email on November 1 informing me that the web host site
hosted my small sites was shutting down effective November 30.
Multi-Domain Hosting.com has done a good job for me,
has decided to get out of the hosting business.
means that I will have to move some 32 domains from this site and set
them up on another site. This
is not as daunting a task as it may sound.
Many of these are “forwarding” domain names that
another domain. These
very easy to set up. The
other domains that are not “forwarding domains” are one page
“place holder” domains. I
will just upload these pages from my computer to the new host – fairly
simple to do.
first challenge was to find a host that would host unlimited numbers of
domains for a reasonable price. The
web host I chose is Hostmonster.com.
This host will host unlimited domains and throw in a
for $5.95 per month (two year contract).
This is more expensive than the $2.95 for
Hosting.com, but is the cheapest provider with I could find.
This host is well rated in the hosting reviews.
have set up an account on Hostmonster.com and I am getting ready to
transfer the accounts.
did get a free domain out of the deal.
I chose www.quail-hunter.com.
I will consider making a fun site about my quail
and stories about my dogs.
will write more about this move in the next issue.
That wraps up our
issue for this week. Until
next week, stay tuned.
