- Backup everything! all the files on the hosts. Hostmonster, my previous domain had this thing about increasing the monthly fee $1 per yearly renewal.
- On domain manger set dns redirect 301 to new host ASAP
- Find cheap (free hosting) gitpages is nice option for a mostly static website.
- Don’t forget to change gmail’s mx servers for email redirects or your emails break.
- I switched to wordpress.com as my blog host instead running my own LAMP wordpress instance. Less work. Export xml for all the posts.
- That’s all; Little harder than squarespace but still smarter than myspace.
- Cons: I’m missing many google analytics tracking and SEO extensions from running my own wordpress.
