New Server – Time to Switch?

I was notified yesterday by Paul Stamatiou that I was awarded the 1 year free hosting from Media Temple. I haven’t opened the account yet but I am excited about winning, I’ve wanted to have a media temple account for a really long time.

So now I am trying to decide – do I move gathering in light over to the new server, given that it’s service is much better? But also knowing I have another 2 years of free hosting on siteground? Or do I get a new domain name and do something different with MT? Knowing that I have only 1 free year, and then after that I’d have to start paying for server space again.

Frankly I am not even sure if the first option is possible with siteground, but if it is does anyone have any advice?

  1. are you nuts? when do you have time for two websites? get back to your studies so that you can move back to Ohio.

  2. I would move to (mt) but that’s just me. Siteground is a good service but they’re not as good as Media Temple. Just my $.02

  3. @ Adam – oh wow – We’ll be learning it together then.

    @ Craig – I’ll be sticking to one website but as far as being “nuts” – that’s for you to decide. 😉

    @ Ben – Thanks for the tip. I know you’ve been with them a while so it’s good to hear you like them.
