Over the last few weeks I’ve been working to move by blog over from DreamHost to DigitalOcean. First off, I’ve been using Dreamhost for nearly 10 years now, and for the price and what you get I’m still super happy with it. However, performance has been a bit slow, and I wanted the opportunity to really mess around with my own server.
With DigitalOcean, I have my own SSD Cloud Server to play around with and completely screw up. Since I’ve been doing more server provisioning, tweaking, and architecting at work I wanted to have a personal server I could muck with as I pleased.
