Hi guys,

Just wanted to give you a quick heads-up on access to the blog over the next couple of days. I’m in the process of switching web hosts from Hostgator to BlogOnCloud9.

While I’ve been pretty happy with Hostgator, I’m finding that as my blog grows (and the other domains that I currently have live, as well as a couple that will be soon) I need a host that can grow with my needs.

BlogOnCloud9 fits these needs, particularly with their cloud partnership with RackSpace.

I’ll be writing a little bit more about the differences I see (or hopefully see, anyway!) shortly. In the meantime, the blog may have some access issues in the next 24-48 hours. If so, I apologize, and hopefully the benefits of the changeover will make up for any inconvenience.

Moving to new hosts can be nerve-wracking … Good luck with the transition!

Sounds like a good move to me – good luck with it

Danny, I will eagerly be waiting for your feedback on this because I am with H.G too, and have been having several of these same thoughts….I finally moved my site over to Headway, but it still has a ways to go. Sorry, I didn’t mean to hijack the thread :).

Hey there fella,

No hijacking involved :)

I think my blog gets moved over today, so will definitely keep you posted on how it all goes, and any performance differences I notice – cheers!

So funny – Cloud 9 is usually where I float every time you reply to one of my comments. How fortuitous!!

How did you come across them, Danny? Were they a recommendation from someone?

My bad, John – I actually saw them recommended on Mark Jaquith’s post on WordPress and web hosts:

Then did a bit more digging around and was really impressed with the pedigree. :)

Hi mate,

I can’t recall, actually – think it was a Google search, but don’t quote me! :)

Oooh, a google search and not a personal recommendation?

I know – crazy, huh? ;-)

Though I seem to recall the RackSpace connection coming up before, and seeing some positive vibes about BlogOnCloud9.

Guess we’ll see soon enough as the transfer is underway. :)
