I had previously migrated domains over to Hover (I use NetRegistry for .au domains) from GoDaddy. See a theme here? </p> <p>The website move is slightly more involved as I was also using Media Temple to host my DNS records. I ended up moving my DNS to Amazon Route 53, whilst not free, it has some great tools and it really isn't that expensive - unless this domain gets a ridiculous amount of DNS queries. </p> <p>By day I'm a .NET developer but I've actually never hosted my own sites on .NET, this had to change! After visiting TechEd this year I decided to learn more about Windows Azure. The blogs of <a href="http://www.hanselman.com/blog/">Scott Hanselman</a> and <a href="http://weblogs.asp.net/scottgu/">Scott Guthrie</a> were great to get up to speed on the how and what things need to be done. That said, if you use Visual Studio it's surprisingly easy to publish a site straight from the IDE - things get even easier if you're using Visual Studio 2013! </p> <p>A few hoops later I had migrated my sites and emails over to Azure - actually, I'm using a hosted Exchange service for my emails that's linked to my Azure Active Directory. Of course this all meant that I had to swap out blog engines but I'll save that for a future post. </p>http://weblog.kilic.net/post/windows-azure-migrationWindows Azure Migration2013-11-28T10:24:06ZWith any luck and having the stars aligned this post should appear on my blog hosted at Windows Azure.
