Andysworld! comes home!

Thursday, July 25th, 2019

It’s been just a little over 10 years ago that I migrated Andysworld! and all my hosting to the US, with

BUT – 20 days ago, I was left with

  • No hosting.
  • No email for 4 days.

There was no explanation of when it would return. So I’ve voted with my feet, and brought it all back to the UK, where I’ve been hosting with since 2004, in one shape or form, when they acquired PurpleCloud!! (in 2011).

This is strapline – “Professional Web Hosting from Just Host – JustHost”

All I can say is…Just****.com.

So since I’ve  moved it all back, there maybe some teething issues…

Sunday, February 19th, 2012

My Nephew Conner, wanted me to put this on my blog, so here it is….maybe he’s going to be the next Sir Alan Sugar or Sir Richard Branson!

Free Domain Names provided by Dot.TK. Need a Domain Name, Create one in a minute!

(no idea what it’s all about!). But if it helps him become a Millionaire, hopefully I’ll get a bite of the cherry!

Blog outage again!

Thursday, July 2nd, 2009

If you’ve not reached my blog today, received a Hello World, forbidden or otherwise, it’s because since 9.30GMT, the hosting server has been under a distributed denial-of-service attack (DDoS attack).

Just my luck…

Outage – suspended!

Tuesday, June 30th, 2009

You may have noticed if you visited between 8.30 – 21:00 on 30 June 2009, my website was suspended by the hosting company.

Overnight, a script went bad causing the CPU on the server to exceed my allowed 10%, and hence my hosting was immediately suspended. No warning was issued, just suspension.

I had noticed my website was not functioning correctly on the 30 June 2009, as previously reported, and this script was removed, the strange thing is this script has been running correctly for the last 30 days without issue. I hope it doesn’t occur again, it caused me a massive headache.

NEW WEBSITE! (hosting server)

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

It would appear that something weird is happening, and the nameserver entries are “bouncing” between the old and new nameservers, the effect of this is, is sometimes you get the old, and sometimes you get the new website. This is out of my control because it’s to do with the DNS cache’s that exist in the Internet and also your computer! It should settle down after 48-72 hours. When the nameserver updates have propagated across the internet. I’ve posted this as a sticky, so you can see if you have reached the old or new website. It may help if you flush the DNS cache on your computer. If I’m talking techie jargon and you’ve switched off don’t worry.

Website Move

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

All seems to have gone well, I think. Here’s the boring techie, nerdie stuff. I started the move this afternoon at 12.30pm by changing the IPSTAG from the existing registrar to new new one. This change happened immediately, and the IPSTAG was changed to the new registrar. In hindsight, I think it would have been better to change the DNS nameservers first to point to the new hosting server rather than after. There was a small issue, and just my luck, after I had changed the IPSTAG, I noticed that there was a strange error in the transfer to the new registrar, and this is why:

“Unfortunately the company Nominet, the governing body of all .uk domains is currently out of service and experiencing problems. We are waiting for their systems to come back up.”

At approx 5.00pm, I was able to complete the transfer successfully, and update the nameservers to point to the new hosting server. During this time, I started copying the blog software and database to the new hosting server (here).

At present, I’m still waiting for the nameservers to update. So at present the old hosting server is responding to requests.

See you on the other side! (hopefully!)

Saturday, May 30th, 2009

I’m just about to change the IPSTAG on the domain, so I can move the domain registration provider (registrar). This could take between 48-72 hours but when it does change, the website may disappear temporaily. So this may be my last post here at this provider!

But don’t worry we’ll be back!

Scary stuff…

Friday, May 29th, 2009

Not happy with the current performance of the blog, and wanting to do more adventurous things with it, I’m considering moving the hosting of it, if I cannot get the performance issues fixed. There’s quite a bit of data to move from, which has ended up here over the last five years. This is probably going to be a two step process, in changing the domain records and then moving the web hosting (actual data and blog!).

I don’t know how long this is going to take me to organise, so just giving you the heads up now, just in case one day doesn’t respond in how it should (which is happening quite a bit at present with blank page responses!).

I’ll try and give you warning with one last post, before I shutdown and move!
