Some of you might have noticed that Political Irony has been slow lately, and even been unavailable on and off. Yesterday I found some exploit code that had been hacked into the site and removed it, but it still isn’t behaving well. It has been almost a year since I rebuilt the site from scratch, so it is probably time to do that, but before I do that I have two questions:
I’m currently running Political Irony on a shared hosting service. This blog is really too big for that kind of hosting, but I’ve been reluctant to spend more since I don’t make any money on this site (and don’t really want to). Does anyone know of a hosting service for WordPress blogs that can deal with the traffic and is also relatively cheap? If so, please leave a comment on this post.
Alternatively, is there anyone out there who can host this site and act as sysadmin for it? I’m starting a new job on Monday, and I don’t have much time for the administration duties (updating the software and dealing with spammers and hackers), although I’m happy to keep feeding stories. If anyone is interested please contact “iron” at this domain.
