Life in the Slow Lane


March 12th, 2009 · 1 Comment

If you are reading this, welcome aboard the shiny, new! I’ve decided to ditch my shared web host of the last 10 years,, and move onto a dedicated slice at Shared web hosting means that your site shares hardware, the operating system and system software with many other customers, and can often times be slow. Slices share hardware but don’t share software so I can run anything I want on my slice. It does require a bit of know-how to run your own slice but know-how is what I’m paid to have.

I’m also saving a bit of money by consolidating all my domains onto one system., and are all running on this slice.

For now, you shouldn’t notice much of a difference. I’ve upgraded my blog software and I’ll do the same for the photo gallery software shortly. Please let me know if you see any problems.

    Good to know about slicehost—D. is pondering alternatives for his current webhost….

    (I use lunarpages, but then, I can get by without their relatively expensive shell access. I really wish I had shell somewhere besides one remaining undergrad account, though.)
