The Big Move!

by on Jun.15, 2009, under Watercrown Productions

You’re probably noticing something odd about your address bar right now.

Google Pages is getting replaced by Google Sites in the coming weeks and I’ve taken this opportunity to get out while the getting’s good. I’ve had a wonderful experience with Google Pages up until now and I’m sad to see it go, but everything I’ve heard about Google Sites tells me it’s going to be a downgrade. Thankfully, they’ve made the transition either way as painless as possible: those who choose to stay can have their site automatically migrated to Google Sites, and those that choose to move can download their entire site’s content and set up a redirect to their new URL.

It’s taken just over an hour to finish reuploading all my content to my new 110mb page: it took a bit of clever file renaming and manual HTML editing, but right now the site should be 100% identical in function to the old one. This might change once Google Pages is finally phased out completely, as 110mb doesn’t let free accounts upload certain file types (the Repercussions of Evil MP3 and Murakumo music video are still hosted on Google Pages), but the really awesome thing about 110mb is there are no subscriptions: all upgrades are a one-time purchase. So once I’ve bought a few extra features, I should be able to host my media here. (And the nice thing is, I’ll be able to embed them in my pages. Google Pages didn’t let me do that.)

The only problem right now is that without Google Pages, I don’t have a proper web page editor anymore (I’m currently writing this news entry manually in HTML!), but I’ll have that problem fixed soon.

Let us have a brief moment of silence for Google Pages. And then, let us celebrate, for Watercrown Productions is reborn. REJOICE!
