My current web host (BlueHost) is not very good. This year I have had severe outages and the helpdesk is not helpful, and they aren’t cheap.
I have identified a better hosting arrangement: move WordPress to WordPress.com and HTML to a very reliable web host. The cost will be less when it’s all done… and it will work better.
Unfortunately bits of the site will go missing for a few days during the move but it will all be back afterwards. Then, I’ll migrate the best pages of the HTML (the old bemuso.com web site) into WordPress a page at a time, and update them as I go. When it’s all in WordPress it will be far easier to update and it will look much cooler.
About half the old site has lost its relevance over the years so I’ll just retire those bits.
There is a bit of groundwork to do first so nothing will happen for a few weeks. I’ll post again right before the fun and games begin.
UPDATE: Research has shown moving WordPress to WordPress.com is not easy. There are tools but the media library (basically all the pictures) and links to it must be rebuilt manually. So I’m adjusting my move to leave out WordPress.com for now.
