So, here I am, blank blog infront of me again. I mean blank, too. No posts, no comments, no history of any sort. Why is that?
Well the Media Temple grid service was shown to be somewhat insecure recently when someone was able to gain access to many of the sites hosted there and inject malicious code into the websites hosted therein. Luckily, it wasn’t very malicious. Some ads for various potency enhancing pharmaceuticals and the like snuck in under the radar. You didn’t even see the ads, I suspect it was just a CPM scam.
However, with my business developing in leaps and bounds (although admittedly it’s more of a brain-infant than a brain-child for the moment) I thought it was time to get some serious hosting sorted out. Oh and World 1 Stage 1 needs a reliable home too. Media Temple were very understanding and after a chat with their sales people they offered me a good deal on a server, so here I am.
I used to run a dedicated server way back when and it’s all coming back to me. The increased responsibility is noticeable but very liberating in its’ way. No support tickets to open, I am my own administrator. Which whilst it puts the onus on me does mean there’s no one telling me ‘that’s against policy’ when I try and configure things just how I want them.
Hopefully that means no more interruptions to service and once everything is back up and running it’ll stay up and running this time.
