After years on Site5, I decided that instead of paying money for servers I don’t really need, I would instead move my blog to WordPress.com and may they’re much smaller annual fee for having a domain name.
This is not in anyway a slight on Site5. Their service has been fantastic over the years. But all I really do is host a few blogs and I can do that for less money and without a lot of the overhead that comes with having your own servers. Seriously, if you need your own hosting solution, Site5 is a great resource and you should check them out.
I moved everything to WordPress.com for a couple of reasons, one was financial, the other is security. WordPress.com keeps their system updated with the latest version of WordPress and it doesn’t require any intervention from me for these things to happen.
