I had all these blog posts in mind this weekend, but I think my brain sort of got overloaded with all the stuff I had to do for my site on the backend. Basically, I’ve been wanting to switch from GoDaddy’s hosting to HostGator, which I use for Wedding Decorator and have been happy with. I finally got off my butt to do it when GoDaddy charged me nearly $100 to auto renew for two years. So I had to first backup my site, download my files and upgrade my HostGator account so it could take unlimited domain names (the Baby package). I followed the directions of various blogs to get my WordPress files transferred properly to HostGator, but there were a few snafus — I initially put my files in the wrong folder, then it turned out an .htaccess file was blocking my images, etc. It took plenty of IM conversations and emails with HostGator’s tech support guys to figure it all out, but its all in working order now and I’m happy as a clam. And my site loads much faster at work compared to when I had my hosting on GoDaddy.
