My UK2 hosting is now officially live, I’ve moved my hwhap.com domain with WordPress and the MySQL data etc over to it! I think I got a bit of a bargain, a 24 month hosting plan at half price 🙂
It’s quite exciting to see how fast the pages load now and also I now have proper PHP outgoing connections which means that WordPress will work properly for a start ! I also have SSH access to my server now, what a luxury! I can twiddle with files using vi, copy and move things about and all sorts.
It’s quite nice being able to talk to a support person as well, UK2 have a live chat system that seems to be manned pretty well. I’ve now added hwhap.com to my UK2 hosting and it appears as a separate web site, cool !
The PHP ‘Hills database’ page is even working, although only because it’s using a remote mysql connection to freehostia.. I haven’t updated it to use the new UK2 mysql yet 🙂
