My website ourfamilycookbook.com is a family history site based on the idea that food and family go together. My sister Veta and I wrote the first cookbook as a little book soon after the death of our parents. Some years ago, I created a website from the book.
The website has been hosted on a Web server at my house. Because I plan to be away from home for extended periods (my RV travels), I decided to move ourfamilycookbook.com to Microsoft Azure hosting. I had first tried moving it to Network Solutions Hosting, but was not pleased with the service. I am very happy with Microsoft Azure. It offers the latest Microsoft technology well-integrated with Visual Studio, my favorite Web development tool.
I spent about a half day moving the site to Azure, which required the following steps:
- Creating a new Web App within my existing Azure subscription,
- Copying the ourfamlycookbook.com files to Azure and
- Routing the ourfamilycookbook.com domain name to the new Azure site.
