I’ve decided to move the site over to a different web host since I’ve not really ever had satisfactory service from my current host, Servage.
Servage offer shared-managed hosting which they appear to oversell to a massive degree. The terrible MySQL performance I pretty consistently got from them was the biggest deal breaker I experienced.
With these issues in mind I’ve moved over to using a Cloud Server from Rackspace Cloud instead. This is an unmanaged VPS solution meaning that the software side of the server is entirely administrated and controlled by me.
The blog is now migrated across after I’ve spent the past couple of weeks setting up the server the way I want. Everything should work fine but there may be some minor issues that need to be sorted out such as resource constraints, for example.
