Today, this morning, everything connects as it’s supposed to, and I owe thanks to the support guy, John, at my hosting company! Yesterday was a disaster, as usual, and I discovered that what my computer says my ip address is is not what whatsmyip says my ip is. Interesting. And confusing.
For some reason, also, I had to give up using Opera because it wouldn’t connect, while Firefox does. So, that’s interesting.
I had things settled on my old hosting company, and thought everything was going smoothly, and it did for well over a year. There was a support guy that really helped me out. But one day in December, late, I noticed my email wasn’t flowing for my website. Hmmm. I waited a few days. Nothing.
I tried to log onto the site one day, and good grief! It was suspended! What on earth? I had nothing controversial on there, except possibly ad for CBD oil from an affiliate account. I’ve never actually sold anything, or made any commissions from anyone. Well, once long ago I made some commissions from Amazon, and spent it all buying books. That’s the way I fly. I read a lot. My kindle is getting slow I think because it’s got so much stuff in it!
So, I tried to get support from my favorite support guy, and nothing. Nothing. No acknowledgement even of the trouble ticket. So, a few days later, I logged on the hosting site and lo and behold, that trouble ticket wasn’t even there! Ugh.
So, I tried again. Still nothing. So for three more days, a total of about a week or so, the site was marked suspended, and no mail flowed.
So, I looked elsewhere and got a new hosting account. But, of course, things aren’t working as smoothly as they should. It might be a while before things settle down. Maybe I’ve misconfigured something. Who knows. I’ll keep checking.
In the meantime, I heard from my old hosting company they’d love to have me back! So, we will see. Hmmm..
Always seems to happen either during a long holiday, or around the first of the year. My web pages get all screwed up, and I seem to lose control of everything. I think sometimes it’s because I’m getting old, but really, there’s no excuse when the hosting company doesn’t respond to support tickets for days. So, once again, I’m starting all over. I could restore lots of old stuff, but why?
Actually, I was going on about my ancestry stuff my sis has been researching. And I’ll get into it more once I get these other sites settled into a pattern, as they were.
For now, Happy New Decade, 2020. Hope it’s a good one for us all!
