One of the cloud services leading us into the future is undoubtedly Cloudflare. I host my DNS with them, though I’m still not sure it’s working as it should, since I’m using their free service to help mitigate any DDoS attacks that might happen. Along with this service comes a free SSL, though there is a paid version. Since I’m a customer, albeit a freebie whore of sorts, I’m happy that the recently announced addition of the Cloudflare Domain Registrar service, and I’ll tell you why.
Ugh! Over the years I’ve setup various websites, mostly with WordPress because of its flexibility, choice of plugins, and the community support that’s so necessary these days. It being open source and readily available, easy to set up, and able to run on a multitude of different servers play into of course, but it’s really hard to beat the types of flexibility and support it has.
Hello all! Well, I lost the last blog because, well, I missed the memo. I get tons of email and just missed the renewal from that host, so deleted the blog and any backups they had. The sad thing is, and this is really very sad, is that I lost the whole thing and I don’t think I have any backups… I only posted every year or so anyway. lol! The silver lining is this host is automatic pilot when it comes to payments, so maybe this blog won’t go anywhere real soon. At least they’re gracious enough to send me reminders and invoices before charging me. *shrugs* Such is life!
