Hey there folks, after a hell filled weekend, the site is finally up. I decided to make the move after the shared server we were once hosted on started to slow down to a halt. It was sometimes impossible to access the back end control panel, and our site speeds were loading much more slowly than before (maybe because of too many sites on the shared server).
With that said, we have gone over to a Virtual Private Server which is kinda like a dedicated server but a bit smaller. We have dedicated resources and have the scalability powers to cope with future traffic growth. I doubt the site will have to move anytime in the near future.
Our biggest problem was DNS. Since the domain had to be re-pointed to a new server IP address, it took extremely long for it to propagate across the globe. Even now, there are still a number of countries that cannot access the site, but hopefully it will all fall in place within the next 24-48 hours. I actually considered picking up smoking because the DNS issues were actually very annoying (staying up till 3am for the last few nights working on things).
On the upside, you may have noticed decreased loading time so that’s always a plus. There are a one or two problems though, but these are being corrected as well speak. We look forward to serving you more tech news so hope you all stick around.
