My long-time (23 years!) host is shutting down suddenly and forcing me to do something I’ve wanted to do for many years now and really never had the time- move from my old-school host to modern WordPress hosting… I’m actually excited by it since it’s going to give me some new tools to simplify the management of all of these sites and might get me to do a redesign of one or more of these sites, which would be fun.
That said… 9 days! So far it seems like it’s going to be possible. WP Engine offers a nice migration tool and once that’s run, for four or five of the sites, it’s just a matter of switching over DNS. Some of the sites are a bit more complicated but I think even those sites will be okay. It’s not like it matters! They’re pulling the plug on the 14th either way.
I’ll update here as I go through the process.
I actually have some book news to share, soon, as well. Maybe that post will be on the new host…
