Web hosting catharsis

I just moved mattclare.ca from a friend’s web host to my existing A2WebHosting account (for passnerd.com). I’ve been wanting to do this for a while, but I anticipated that it wouldn’t be too smooth. The final push was the bandwidth messages I was starting to get every 6 hours:

The domain mattclare.ca (mclare) has reached 80% of its bandwidth limit.
Please contact the system admin as soon as possible.

Fair enough. I’d out grown my generous free hosting and had a number of run-ins with the sys admin (see previous posts on 404 and error logs). So now I’ve moved to a hosting package with more storage for both my web sites and my IMAP E-Mail and, most importantly, more bandwidth!

The best part about A2WebHosting is a I get ssh (secure shell, or secure cammnd line) access to my Linux hosted site — and that get’s the Linux/UNIX geek in me very excited!

Thanks for patience.
