First, a little stroll down memory lane. This little blog has had a few facelifts over the years….
I’ve been wanting to change the name of this website for some time now. The “Mommy” in part of my old blog name no longer seemed fitting to me. My kiddos are older and don’t even call me mommy anymore. I wanted something that sounded a little more grown up anyway.
Once I bought my new domain, I Googled around trying to figure out what it was I needed to do in order to move my website, content and all, to my new domain. Well, let me tell you, just about every article I read made it seem like some kind of technical, pull-your hair-out, time consuming ordeal. I was beginning to feel very overwhelmed. Then, a couple of blog posts I came across mentioned that sometimes hosting providers will take care of it for you, for a fee. However, I had only just recently switched hosting providers, and wasn’t sure if that was a service that they provided.
I submitted a support ticket to my new hosting provider, BigScoots, asking if that is something that they do. First of all, I received an answer just five minutes after submitting the ticket! Not only is their response time super fast, but they had my website moved (for free!) to the new domain in TWELVE minutes! I changed my nameservers to point to BigScoots so they could change it all over at 12:48pm today, and at 1:00pm they told me I was all set! I couldn’t believe it…twelve minutes!
If you’re looking for a hosting provider, I highly recommend BigScoots!
