has finished moving to our new host

It started last week with a bot attack on the website and after a few emails with my previous webhost about my account being suspended for a long time if usage spiked again (I plan on usage going up through natural growth), and the suggestion that I convert the blog from a WordPress blog to a straight html site and a few misfires from LoFi’s webmaster (that would be me) along the way.

The move to DreamHost is complete. Our servers are much more robust, faster and scalable. As the blog continues to grow, our new server on DreamHost will be able to grow with us. I’ve already noticed a visible increase in page load times and overall site response.

Thank you for your patience during the move. Let’s get back to shooting.

    lol – convert to HTML. Why do ISP's make stupid suggestions like that?

    They also asked my to simplify my sitemap so that only the index page was crawled. So much for any good SEO.

    Apperently the box that LoFi was on previously had problems with 200 listings in a sitemap. And I use a plugin to optimize my sitemap to avoid such issues.

    I''d been with my previous host for years for other sites of mine. Oh, well. Nice to find out now instead of six months from now.

    Are you comfortable divulging your former host? While I have no expectation for the audience size that you have, it would be nice to head off any potential issues ahead of time (and I'm probably not alone in my wondering).

    I'd be happy to divulge my former webhost. If anyone is interested, feel free to shoot me an email.
