Last month I told you that I had a new dedicated server to play with, well I didn’t have much in the way of sites to transfer initially as I had recently spread some of my sites across various cheap VPS’s and the only sites I wanted to move to the new dedicated server was thevirtualnameservers.com and cgiscripts4u.com, these where transferred easily enough with very little disruption. Then it was the turn of Joby’s customers’ web sites. These where no more complicated than my own but they felt more important as they where sites of paying customers. all sites where moved without a problem within just a day or so and we had very little communication from the customers saying there was any issues.
Then at the end of September I took delivery of a 2nd dedicated server, this is a lower spec server at a far lower price than before and is sold on the condition that the server must be for your own personal use and you must NOT in any way resell the server. I had no real use for this server but for the price it was too good to pass, unfortunately it is no longer available. Two of my kids play Minecraft so I decided to set up a private minecraft server on it for them to use. I have also decided to use it as a back up dns server and for testing sites before they go live. I am not sure how long I will keep it as the spec is low but then so is the price.
