What a ride!

What a Ride

I was dissatisfied with the hosting WordPress offered, even though it was not too expensive. But after using WordPress hosting, several of the features I needed, or wanted, were not available unless I upgraded to premium or business hosting. I looked around and decided to host my website on GoDaddy. The price was right, only $12.00 a year. (a special offer). I moved my WordPress site using an exported XML file. The initial import went well, and my site loaded correctly.

While I was updating my pages and posts (many things get broken during an import), my GoDaddy hosting kept going down. I called support, and they couldn’t find anything wrong. While I updated my pages, my site would go off-line when I tried to save my work. I called GoDaddy support again to no avail. My site went back on-line while I was waiting for my turn. To correct the problem (if it was something I had done), I removed my site and imported it again. That was a mistake. Most of the media would not load, the system said it already existed; making me more dissatisfied.

During all of this, while I was trying to repair posts and pages, the server came back with a server error that indicated the server was undergoing scheduled maintenance and check again later. I gave up for the night and went to bed. Now it is the next day, and everything seems to be going well. I haven’t had any failures so far today.

I wrote too soon, my site went down again while I was writing this post. I talked to support again, there was a problem with my nameserver that is corrected now.
