I’ve thrown off the shackles of 1&1 hosting, transferred to a new host* and signed up with godaddy for domain registration**.
This means that I’ll no longer get emails addressed to Mr Daisy and -more worryingly- be addressed as Mr Daisy when I phone their “support” desk. I don’t have a deep, sexy voice (alas!) and *looks down* have a fine pair of bosoms so I don’t know why they have for three long years ignored all pleas to update their database.
Anyway, this blog is still hosted with TypePad and will continue to be until December this year but the grand plan is to create a Movable Type and/or WordPress blog on that hosting, see which I prefer and then have chasingdaisy.com as the main url. Or maybe .net.
But I’ll soon (this weekend hopefully) be attempting a domain mapping exercise that’ll mean typing in the .com url (or the .net) will lead you straight to this blog.
There’s an excellent how-to by donnum on the typepad users forum but I have my suspicions that there will be hitches so if I disappear suddenly this weekend, you’ll know why. And *best Arnie impersonation* “I’ll be back”.
* In beta at the moment but I’ll post details when they’re open to the public because the prices and support are excellent.
** Because they’re one of the TypePad recommended registrars for domain mapping.
