Over the years, my WordPress based site has slowly put on a little weight, as is common for these types of installs. My old hosting was only marginal for this type of site, but as time wore on, it became obvious that page loads were slow, and occasionally I would max out my available resources which resulted in crashing the site. Good news! I upgraded to more modern package and those slow loads and site crashes should be remedied for good! Additionally, I’ve moved into the modern age and will force all page views to be run via https, the “s” at the end there stands for “security”, and we can all agree that security is a good thing! Hopefully this will future proof my site a bit, and hope my visitors appreciate the snappier experience!
