Last day at WA

Last Update: June 03, 2014

As a few of you may have seen, today's my last day here (for now). Health conditions are making it hard to concentrate and get any meaningful work done. I'm now in the top 10 for a transplant, so hopefully life will get back onto some kind of even keel after 4 years of living in limbo.

Does anyone recommend another host I can park my site on for a while?

Have lots of ideas for my site, some of which I've added, but a lot of it is still in note form on the floor next to me!

As someone more famous than me once said, 'I shall return'

Best of wishes and thanks for this amazing community. Scott

I suggest you do as Jude says and just save your site until you're well enough to work on it again. You could otherwise use Namecheap. (They are as cheap as their name). Good luck with your health. :) Beverley

Scott, wishing you all the best for a successful operation.

If you are not working on your site, no point in paying for hosting. Perhaps do a full back up and keep a copy on your computer or USB disk and in Dropbox.

Then when you return to WA, you can upload your files via FTP and WA hosting will help you, I'm sure.

https://wordpress.org/plugins/backwpup/

The plugin will send a copy of your site to Dropbox if you tick that box, or you will see other options there. (You will need a free Dropbox account first, if you don't already have one.)

Some people use UpDraftPlus, but I haven't been able to make that plugin work with WA hosting.

See you when you return. Good luck and take care. ~ Jude

Scott, several years ago I had to go trough 4 years of chemotherapy. It was hard. I don't have an idea how bad is your condition, but maybe leaving WA is not the best idea, this is something that will keep you busy and connected to live. I don't want to talk out of turn, it is just my opinion, but you know, you only live once. Wathever your decision, my best wishes.

Thanks, thought of staying, but hepatic encephalopathy feels like a brain fog. Makes it frustrating forgetting how to do something or rereading a post and realizing it makes no sense. Not game to play with settings etc in case I do something really stupid. In the meantime I'll keep busy getting info for posts.

Take care of yourself. Praying for a successful transplant outcome for you.
Can you not leave your site here on siterubix as a free website?

No, you can't drop back once you go premium.:(

Thank you, Scott! Maybe when you get back, you can tell me how to reply on this board without starting a new conversation ... geesh - who has time to learn that, too? LOL!

Ha, my last lesson. Under the initial comment that you posted, just hit reply and it'll tack itself to the conversation.

OK - so I feel stupid. But I'm too old to care what anybody else thinks! LOL! I'm signing off now - and just FYI - I'll be out the next week (taking a short vacation). God Bless and we'll talk again soon!

Bluehost is my preferred host but host gator isn't bad depending on your traffic. Prayers for you brother. Be blessed!

Hi Scott! You already know that you are in my prayers! I'm sad to see you take a leave of absence but will be even happier to see you return. After all - your return marks a successful transplant so your home coming here at WA will have dual impact. God Bless You, My Friend! ~Cathy

Hi Scott. I wish you all the best and I hope the transplant happens soon. I've used Hostgator before. It is not too difficult to park sites there and I have heard good things about BlueHost too. Looking forward to seeing you back in the future.

Best Regards,
Devan

Good luck Scoot! BlueHost has been advertising 4.95 a month hosting. Host Gator usually has some decent prices.
Hope to see ya soon!
