• Notice Given – Changes Are Coming

    May 29th, 2007HARTHmmmm Things, Quickies

    I’ve decided to move all of my accounts .. to a new ISP#3.

    I wrote about some of the issues I was having in my Crossroads post .. and it’s time to just take the leap.

    For my ISP#1 … (aka the mega plan) .. renewal is July 15th, but May 2007 has proven to reach double my bandwidth limits .. using 29.71 GB traffic to this morning’s date for May 2007 alone. The option provided to me, to cover this level of bandwidth – is to upgrade to the level where I was last year. I downgraded and reorganized my accounts last year … from the very plan they suggest I upgrade to. Thanks, but I do not need this stress every year.

    For my ISP#2, my annual renewal was May 28, 2007 – and I renewed this “reseller” account for 1 month only. I’ve got 39 blogs and MySQL databases there, I hope this is enough time to move everything.

    The biggest problem of choices to make is with the mega plan at ISP#1. Once I close down and transfer everything out of ISP#2 .. I will tackle ISP#1. And, I will be watching the bandwidth in June very closely. ISP#1 has 5 domain aliases as part of my PetLvr.com domain and back in May 2005 when I created the first five MySQL databases .. I just used different table names inside the same MySQL database. When I begin to move these accounts .. if I can .. I want to segregate the database tables into unique databases for each blog. I’m also debating whether or not to move the blogs back to the root .. (e.g. PetLvr.com/blog/ to PetLvr.com/)

    Time will tell!

    So .. what should you expect?

    * Well .. for starters, I will be posting all the information on this blog and my progress
    * I will give warning before each move on the individual blogs to warn readers
    * At the same time (shortly after the move that is) I will also be upgrading all of my plugins.
    * Then .. I think it might be time for a network-wide makeover!

    Afterwards, I will try to document the entire move and of any issues that might arise during the process.
