Almost free of Go Daddy

So today I downgraded my account to just one website. The reason I didn’t cancel it all together is because of s .it domain that is not easy to move.

Started a hosting account on another service but that might be cancelled by the end of the month. I hope.

Everything is moving to WordPress for security and easy editing.

WordPress Europe Test

So one of the things I wanted to test with the WordPress hosting of sites is how fast sites would load outside the United States. The sites loaded a lot faster then I saw with other hosting company’s and the interface with WP on a slower internet connection seemed to be fine. I was impressed and had no problems at all, another reason to move more sites to WP in the future.

Domains and email

I think I have it all the way I want them for now , just waiting on one more to update over the next few hours. It been fun learning what different providers can do and what they are over charging for. You would be amazed as to what they think they can get away with.

Network Solutions is again the most expensive (  a reminder to self ) and if you burp while on they’re site I think they charge you for it. They have a nice “domain backorder” scam going on, I left the account and the domain in it just expire.

The ipage account is great for sites that don’t get a lot of traffic and in time they might get some new servers and a faster connection. The difference from the ipage site to WordPress site was 10ms,that’s a lot when there is high demand.

As for GoDaddy I’m still debating on staying, they do work with Microsoft Exchange well but its easy to edit the records in WP also.

Getting domain email seems to be the biggest pain in the ass ( meaning expensive ).

Google problems

Years ago Google started doing domains , for $12 a year you could register or move domains to their service. When moving domins TO google it was so fast and easy. It was almost instant….they are Google.

Since then I have found out the lack of tools to make some advanced changes sucks, forget about using Exchange  they just push the Gapp program. And when you go to use email from another host and then change it , you have to contact them ( good luck ) to have them flush the old info out of the system ( been waiting 2 days so far )

Its a shame they start something ( again ) and forget it, it could be so nice if they would pay attention to it .
