Selfhosting

So, the buggers at WordPress have run out of storage (OK, I’ve used up all the storage I get on my free account because I like pictures. All the pictiures) and now people are talking to me about self hosting and it seems like something I should do for my blog to continue.

I have to be honest in that I don’t really understand it (even though I’ve worked in IT for many years! But I’m a wordsmith, not a technical person). I mean I kind of get it but only conceptually.

And it costs money! For something I can’t eat or wear!

Anyways, it’s all very exciting and nerve wracking (I don’t know why, it just is) so I’m looking into it and finding out more.

I’ve been recommended both BlueHost and NameCheap.

I also have a friend who says he can help me to host it on his server.

Anyone got any tips for me? Things to avoid?

All advice gratefully received!

Thanks, as always, for reading. x
