If you noticed the site not responding or appearing to be down today or last night, it’s because I’ve been migrating hosts.
In January 2019, I switched to Bluehost which is one of the largest WordPress hosting sites out there, but lately, site performance has been miserable. After talking with some other bloggers who also use Bluehost, it seems poor performance was prevalent with other people as well, so I made the decision to try out Amazon Lightsail.
Lightsail is part of AWS (Amazon Web Services), those commercials you always see during NFL games about how they are powered by AWS. Well now Mike Eckman dot Com is as well.
Hopefully you’ll all notice that site responsiveness is significantly faster, and there should be no more 500 Errors.
