I’m back but never left. Four years of Hostinger is now included here, as are all the years before that. It is a fresh start, but the past remains.
1&1/Ionos made me an offer I couldn’t refuse–$12 and a domain name too, but only for a year. It is very fast. They do this, these companies. They have very enticing promos and then sock you with a renewal plan for three times the price. It is easier to start over. WordPress, for their part, has made it much easier to download and upload, and the database files are amazingly small. For me, 13 years of blog files are two databases of about 4-5MB each. And, the process now appears to include media uploads which was a bugaboo in the past.
Above, the pic, is a gutter on my house. Enjoy!
