Well, that was easier than I thought it would be. I’ll probably jinx it by saying so, but the move was pretty easy. Cantoni.org is now being hosted by Pair.com.
The biggest unknown for me was the DNS change. I was skeptical when they claimed it takes “24 – 72 hours” for the change to propagate through, but I noticed it at just over 24 hours. Not bad.
For now, I’m keeping the old site up until I make sure everything made it over safely (http://188.8.131.52/).
Update 11/12/02: This whole transition points out another great benefit of CityDesk. Once my new host account was activated and the DNS settings had made their way through the system, I updated my FTP name/password and republished my entire site. After about 15 minutes, I was up and running!
