The blog is moving to a different hosting provider so there may be some downtime or certificate issues during the switch.

    I need to think whether to move my sites. After many years with Virtualnames (great service from the Harveys) I was migrated to Namesco and it’s not great so far. Last straw might be the inability to edit my Wordpress site through third-party apps such as MarsEdit.

    Our current host has been experiencing more and more problems and performance has been worsening so it was time to move.

    You were on Tsohost, weren’t you? I’ve been having a lot of problems with them too. Time to move on, I think.
  4. I was on TSOHost for a while, and it seemed to be OK, apart from the annoyance of speaking to a different person every time I got a reply on a support ticket. I'm not on them now (on WordPress.com), but I've always found Siteground really good.

    Not a clue 😆 because it’s all part of my wife’s reseller account I’m effectively getting it for free.

    do you need a lot of technical know-how to handle that? So far all my WP instances are one-click installs, I wouldn’t know how to begin otherwise.

    It's not that hard. But you need to learn some stuff. I guess it depends on if you are willing to learn and how comfortable you are with the command line.

    Learning how to set up Apache, MySQL and PHP was where I started when I got into programming and unix / linux back in the day.

    It’s hard to find independent reviews of UK hosting companies. The most promising I’ve found today is Krystal. I think they might be the one.

    I gave up on UK ones in the end, after loads of research. Ended up going with Dreamhost. Possibly not the best but the various offerings soon got too complicated after figuring out what each actually offered!
  11. stefp says: #
    I looked at Dreamhost and Bluehost but my preference was still for a UK based one. I nearly gave up too until I found Krystal. They looked good value and the few comments I found were very positive so I’ve decided to give them a try. I’ll let you know how it goes.
