This Weekend 3/27 to 3/29 PFRE is Moving to Squarespace

March 26th, 2009

I am pleased with how smoothly my preparations have been going to move this blog to Squarespace. So tomorrow (Fri 3/27) I’m going make the final move. After I point the domain name photographyforrealestate.net to the Squarespace servers it will take from 24 to 48 hours for that update to be propagated to all the domain name servers around the world. This means it will be some time Sunday (3/29) before all readers will seeing the new site. This is the last post that I’ll be making here on the bluehost.com server. I’ll have a post up over on the new location where I’ll point out the differences and new features.

Why am I moving the blog?

  • I’ve not been satisfied with the reliability here at bluehost.com. Squarespace guarantees and is delivering 99.9% up time.
  • The speed as I measure it is consistently twice as fast at Squarespace as bluehost.com. It is also more consistent.
  • Squarespace is a huge improvement in the ease and maintainability of a blog or site compared to WordPress. I’ve run into some quirky issues that would either require I spend the time to become a WordPress expert or hire a WordPress guru to get fixed. On Squarespace these issues go away and I get far more flexibility to add features to the blog. Squarespace is an impressive hosting platform!
  • Squarespace allows the opportunity for growth and expansion without having to move again.

I think you will like the change. In the move I’ve been able to easily a couple of features that people have been asking for. See you over at the new location.
