QuickPacket Hosting

Continuing my long tradition of frequent host changes, this site has been moved to yet another host. In the last few years I’ve used a number of hosts (and there’s a couple more not on that list), and this time I’m taking a bit of a risk – so it’ll be interesting to see how this one works out. I’ve switched to a company called QuickPacket, but this time instead of a fairly beefy VPS, I’ve went in the opposite direction – absolute minimum.

The new plan is about as minimal as it gets:

  • 128 MB RAM
  • 256 MB vSwap
  • 1 CPU Cores
  • 20 GB Disk Space
  • 500 GB Bandwidth

The upside to this? It’s only $15 per year.

So I’m going to focus on caching and optimization to keep this and a few other sites running on such lean resources. In theory WordPress should be able to do it, if it can’t – I’ll switch to Octopress or something similar.

This should be a fun challenge.
