Finally. If you see this message then you're now at my new domain and host.
It was pretty troublesome trying to import the big SQL database over because phpMyAdmin wouldn't accept anything bigger than 2MB. I ended up trying to figure out how to import it directly via an SSH session and the command line. Didn't take too long after that though.
You may have noticed the old domain name Xcomprandomness.co.uk now re-directs you here to Lhyeung.net. I'll explain later once the rest of my re-designs are complete ^^;
Until then, I hope you continue enjoying the content I write here.
My blog's migrated a number of times. Starting off from free blog services to someone's own private server and now my own hosting space and domain.
Well, now I'm about to move again to a different host that offers a cheaper and better deal than the current one - And hopefully a more reliable service too. They offer unlimited bandwidth and more SQL databases whereas the current package only offers one and bandwidth that barely meets the current monthly demand.
Quite a bit to backup and move. Even though today's connections are fast, when you're working with paid hosting, you need to consider bandwidth i.e. how much data you're downloading and uploading. If you just happen to have more on the server than your monthly quota allows then you could be in a little trouble. In my case, I'm still in the green so I'm good.
During the move you might have trouble accessing the site. It all depends on how frequently your ISP updates its internet address book i.e. flush its DNS records which could take a few hours to several days.
I'm working on some changes to the site's layout to better organise the content I'm focusing on. I was hoping to get it all completed before the move but, it looks like they won't be completed in time... Guess I'll have to make them afterwards ^^;
