Well, I have finally started the server move.
I am moving (and consolidating) my web ‘presence’ from two linode virtual boxen onto a single real server hosted by the fine people of hertzner.de.
It’s simply not possible to say no to an EX4 box.
Right now, 3 terabytes of disk space feels positively roomy and in comparison to the scant 60gig or so I had with my two linode boxes it IS. No doubt given a couple of years that will change.
In the meantime, I will keep you posted as to how my experience of the new hosting company holds up.
