- Expiration of Bluehost hosting services
I originally hosted this page on BlueHost via WordPress and having an image gallery with ZenPhoto. Although I did really like this set up, I don't really post enough content or get enough traffic on this site to justify constantly maintaining the latest versions of these applications on my server. So, as detailed on my previous entries, I migrated the content over from WordPress to Blogger, hosted by Google's own servers.
I probably boke the older image links that were hosted on the Bluehost server, but I will go around and fix them with the appropriate Google+ photos when I'm bored enough.
- Changing domain name hosting from Bluehost to Namecheap
Although Bluehost still had my domain for a few more months, a lot of domain name settings weren't accessible any more since I didn't have a CPanel login for a hosting. Namecheap seemed to have positive reviews and decent initial and renewal fees. (Link is a referral link)
So I had to tinker with the Nameserver address settings to get it right, as I wanted to redirect any jameskupke.com requests to blog.jameskupke.com instead of www.jameskupke.com; I think I will want to do something different with that in the future.
So I'm glad to get it done, and I don't anticipate doing any major changes since Blogger is a convenient plug in to the rest of the Google products I use. I think in 2014 I'll be posting more now that I'm married and the wife is settled in to her job. Happy New Years all!
