I have had this site hosted at GoDaddy.com since the early 2000’s. For the most part there haven’t been any problems. Towards the end of 2017 GoDaddy migrated my hosting from and old server that they were retiring to their new system. Due to the fact that my site was so old and crusty, it didn’t migrate over smoothly. It was going to take me several hours to do the migration manually.
Considering this, I decided it was time to get on board with newer web technologies. I let the GoDaddy support person convince me to migrate away from my custom Joomla site and move to WordPress.
So far I’m happy with the decision. There’s a lot for me to learn but I’m fine taking it slowly.
