Moving to a new host

Last week MaxXor suggested that I should add HTTPS support to my blog. My existing free host (bplaced) doesn't offer HTTPS, so I decided to finally switch to paid hosting. After thinking a bit, reading customer references, I chose Active24 - and so far the experience has been overwhelmingly positive.

  • Webhost was set up within minutes, including self-signed HTTPS certificate;
  • As soon as you update your DNS entries, Let's Encrypt certificate is issued automatically. You don't need to do anything yourself!
  • Unlimited disk space;
  • Unlimited traffic;
  • Unlimited cron jobs;
  • And everything "just works™";

For now HTTPS is optional (try https://lifeinhex.com/), I'll start enforcing HTTPS in a few days after fixing all the mixed-content warnings. smile

Have fun and stay safe (and let me know if you notice any issues)!
