I've arranged for a new server, and while getting it set up have noticed something interesting. You start out by getting a login name and password, which you can then use to open a secure command shell session on your new server. We're talking about remotely hosted machines here, where access is primarily through a command line shell, or maybe a browser utility you like. Even though the operating system is what you asked for, the configuration is somewhat different than what you're used to. Your favorite utilities aren't where you normally keep them. The little changes you make to accommodate styles and habits you've picked up over years are missing. Its a perfectly good environment, but it's not comfortable yet.
Over the course of the next day, you get to know the new server. You adapt to it, while you adapt it to you. Somewhere in that time it becomes comfortable and familiar. What started as a "big chore" becomes just a set of easy steps until at some point there is a key transformation. The server is yours now. You've still got work to do before you're ready to replace the old one completely, but now you're eager to get that done. The new server starts to feel subjectively "better" than the old one.
The new server will be handling both 'thenorth.com' as well as 'secondsignal.com'. The new server is being hosted with The Planet. It's powerful enough to handle both domains as well as the asterisk pbx without a problem.
