SiteGround GoGeek Upgrade

My SiteGround Account

The Migration

This weekend I started migrating all pf my websites on my SiteGround to my wormley.org GoGeek account. I moved one of my two GoBig accounts to a GoGeek account last weekend. I originally had a lot of StartUp accounts for all of my domains several years ago. This consolidation of ten domains and about 20 web sites that I maintain on one server has been bugging me for about a year. I finally decided in 2019 to go ahead and do it.

I was nervous about moving my three WordPress multi-sites to a new web-server. I got SiteGound support to move zaramyth.net under the one free website migration offer. My other multi-site, pokemongoblog.org, I moved myself. I had to change the domain because it was using a sub-domain pokemongo.zaramyth.net and it would not work on the new server. I had a different domain for this site, but let it go. now the new domain name is working just fine.

One the advantages of consolidating all of my web properties onto one server is that I am saving money on SSL certificates. Paying for one wildcard certificate on one server and using Lets Encrypt for all of the websites on the same server saves the cost of getting a SSL certificate for each website.

I have been using SiteGround for web hosting since January 29, 2007. Tomorrow I will have been with SiteGround for 12 years. I cannot remember why I left my previous host, but I am sure it was based on price.

Anyway this is just a little write up on my migration to one hosting server. It will make my web development life a little easier.
