I have just completed migrating FOREST TREASURES across to it's new home at InMotionHosting. The site had previously been hosted at Powweb since 2003 ... but, their service and performance has deteriorated significantly during the last 3 or 4 years. So, it became necessary to cut the tie and move on to a better providor.
InMotionHosting so far has proved excellent. I moved a couple of my other sites (Gilmour Artforms :: BOB GILMOUR dot info) a year ago and they are performing much better ... 3 or 4 times faster and no issues with php and mysql for which Powweb is notorious.
In the week or so since I've moved FOREST TREASURES, the site is running faster, in line with the other sites I had already moved. I have also just installed a dedicated security certificate as well.
It had been my intention to complete a full update of the site prior to migration, but just haven't had enough time this year so far. So, I'm planning to do a series of rolling upgrades to update the look and feel of the site and also further improve it's performance.
