Spun up and now getting the control panel software on it.
My previous provider changed hands and they now want to charge me a significant sum that used to be included in the managed server fees. I mean, that's why I was paying for a fairly expensive plan.
A month later and I’m in the process of moving all the accounts over to it. Good times. And it’s actually been mostly painless. A few things have cropped up—like when people tell me they’ve swapped up the name servers for their domains, but haven’t. That’s been it, though. Mostly painless.
I dread when it’s time to do a massive upgrade to this instance. I have no clue as to what I’m doing. Just to be transparent. 😅
