I'd be willing to help you as well source out a VPS solution that may possibly be cheaper than GoDaddy and allow more control depending on the needs. If you wish to discuss off thread, feel free to PM me.

Thank you!
I've learned so much in the 4 years since creating WRC, but this is definitely not my area of strength. So many of you have helped and offered to help. Truly speaks to the greatness of this community.

But if it's just for the free SSL certificate, it might make more sense to pay the $12/year for now (for a non-free one), there is non-trivial work involved in switching hosting. Of course, if there are other compelling reasons to switch ...

I thought you had mentioned that it was $12/year for the first year and then escalated to $100... I did have the impression that GoDaddy is sort of evil (and one can search the Internet for details) although it doesn't seem to be in the news that much these days. Escalating does count as minorly evil to me.

That's a major jump.  I'll definitely take care of it.  I've been in discussion with a member about some options, I just need to get on it.

$100 per year is a relatively small amount of money compared to the time and effort of managing one's own server though, especially for folks who are not familiar with it. Spokes you're entirely capable of learning, and like the others I'd be happy to help with migration, administration, etc but you should also consider the value of your time when making the budget decisions.

It's crazy how much I feel like I've learned compared to where I started.

You all need to be careful. I'm keeping track of who's offering help Wink
