FINALLY! I'm making some progress on getting my site back online. I can tell you right now this has been a hair raising experience. This all started when the service on the old server got so lousy that I didn't have any choice other than to move it to another server provider's server. I got a higher end package because over the years each different provider did good at first and then started saying my site was too big with too much traffic and also saying I needed to go to a dedicated server. Now that is HIGH end and way out of my $$$ range. Anyway the new name servers are setup and it could take up to 24 hours for the site to come back on line. I shutter to think what I'll need to do once that happens!
BTW December the 15th will start the 13th year I've been running the site and I've been through a LOT of problems over the years, but this has to be about the worst yet. It seems now days there is no such thing as good tech support. Some providers are evidently outsourcing their tech support yo India or somewhere else which seems evident on the last server the site was on. I think everyone has probably gotten in to a situation like that. The tech support on the new server doesn't seem to be much better because my correspondence with them has been the same answers over and over how to resolve the problem, but then them saying they didn't have that information. The tech support I'm getting now isn't even through them.
Now, the point to all of this is IF you think you'd like to start a web site and you live off grid then you should know that it will probably be tough.
