Website host moving

So hosting this site on my own server was sort of slow, and I don’t think IIS can support many users unless you use a server edition of Windows.

I do have an image of Windows Server 2016 as part of my MSDN subscription but I don’t feel like firing up a VM or a physical host to install it on.


I migrated my site to a GoDaddy host, but there were some headaches:

  1. Making the WordPress site a top level domain is difficult hence I try to redirect you to automatically when you go to
    1. If anyone knows how to change your CNAME or records to automatically make my wordpress subfolder appear to be the root folder please feel free to drop me a line!
  2. I can’t seem to be able to RDP into the Godaddy host even though I am on a Windows plan and it says you can.
    1. As a result clearing temporary files is next to impossible!
  3. The PHP version seems to be stuck at 5.4. 🙁
  4. Godaddy is still a really slow host! I think you can pay to get a premium server, but holy hell it’s slow!

Well that’s where we are now, site migration was a pain, but I think it’s working now.
