The best lessons are free and at someone else's expense! Smile | :)

It's good to see a good backup plan in action! Congrats! Thumbs Up | :thumbsup:

For many years now, I've gotten away with self-hosting several customer web apps from my home/office. It was risky, but none of the apps were 'mission critical'. I'd say through a 10 year period, I've only had a few major outages that have caused me to explain (over the cell as the office phone is VOIP) that my internet connection was down temporarily but would be restored asap...the last time was last year when a major hurricane knocked out power for 3 days (I was lucky) and internet for 6 days.

I'm now renting a virtual rig at Azure for new apps and that could conceivably take over by re-pointing the domain as you did. Of course, that still requires my ability to access Azure which was not fun on a mobile, last time I had to do it!

I also rolled a nice sql database backup/ftp utility that means I have nightly, co-located backups of any important databases...also convenient for when I have to travel with the laptop.
