dalriada.org.uk goes VPS

You probably don’t need to know this (or care) but the dalriada domains have just moved from shared hosting (which most people use) to my new Virtual Private Server (VPS).

A VPS is effectively my own wee computer, running CentOS 7 Linux, hosted remotely i.e. in  ‘the cloud’.

Main reason for this was to host my Tomcat server (which supports ColemanTree Viewer etc) in the cloud rather than on my trusty old Windows 7 laptop which runs on my desk at home.  I can switch the laptop off now without affecting Dalriada Tomcat.  Shared hosting (as used to host dalriada.org.uk) can’t support that but with VPS I can install whatever I like – so I began with Tomcat. Dalriada Tomcat runs in a new domain, named dalriada-vps.org.uk, but my old domains, dalriada.org,uk and dalriada-downshift.co.uk have also been migrated to my new VPS – so that I don’t have to pay for (now redundant) shared hosting as well!
