Migration sucessfullJune 30, 2016
I have moved my infrastructure to my own virtual server and now have a central point to administrate everything. Thanks to FreeBSD and it's jails I was able to separate services, which are known to have security issues regularly. Also I have already operated that server for two years and fine tuned many things, like firewall rules and kernel parameters. I am now pretty happy with the result. Among many other advantages which I gained by doing so, I have also improved the accessibility for my visitors: My sites are available over IPv6 and HTTPS, which tended to be too expensive on my previously used shared webspace. I am currently thinking about writing an article or creating a video about what I have learned about the differences and similarities between self hosted environments and shared webspace, because I managed to run unsupported code and languages on my shared space for years, which some of you may find interesting.
