Upcoming site move and security change
January 4, 2019 11:59 AM - About LifeinBklyn - BoerumHillScott
Over the last year, the site disk storage requirements have been getting closer to the limits of our current hosting provider. We have had the current provider for over three years, so it was time to evaluate competitors anyway. I ended up findng one that offers a lot more storage at a much lower price along with better performance, so it’s moving time.

With moving, I did some behind the scenes clean up, and decided to make one change: the new server will only support HTTPS, encrypting all traffic.
All existing links will still work, but will automatically redirect you from http to https.
The only difference you should notice besides an extra “s” in URLs is that the site will now be considered secure by your browser and you will not get annoying messages warning you to not enter your password on newer browsers.

I will most likely make the move this evening (Friday, January 4), meaning a few hours of downtime.


Site Finances: July 2015 – January 2019

So I have not been very diligent about documenting the site finances, but then again we no longer have expense or donations as large as the first few years.

Moving forward with a new hosting provider, the ongoing costs will be lower:
$35/year for hosting
$26/year for domain registration (estimate, pre-paid through 2021)
$12/year for backup storage (approximate)
==
$73/year total
