Self Host or Not Self Host…….that be thy question!

Ok I’ve been umming and arring a while now about going self hosted. So yesterday I took the plunge and did it.

I have to be the most computer illiterate person on the planet. At work I spend half my time on the phone to IT support, I constantly forget passwords and haven’t got a clue what I’m doing, sometimes I even struggle to print things. So it did cross my mind about how I was going to manage to migrate my blog over etc.
All I can say is thank goodness for tsohost. They are the most patient and helpful people ever. They didn’t tut or sigh at me once and they talked me through the whole process.

Yay that is that I’m now self hosted.
I do hope that everyone who has followed me at mamaknowsbest2.wordpress.com will continue to support me in my new home at mamaknowsbest2.co.uk.

  1. You can not be the most computer illiterate person on the planet if you turn round I’m in the queue right behind you, forgive my ignorance could you tell me the benefits of self hosting as I’m not sure what is involved :-)

    • Hello it means that I’m responsible for the upkeep of the site. On wordpress.com they do all the hosting for you. I’m now .co.uk and have done it through a company called tsohost. It gives me more flexibility for posts. I can now post videos and run competitions etc which I couldn’t do through free wordpress, I could so do paid posts too.
      Would be great if you could continue to follow me through my new site
