Moving web server 9/21/2011


Staff member

We will be moving web servers tomorrow.
We will be changing from shared hosting to virtual private server hosting.
That means we will be able to hold a lot more than 30 people at the same time on our website without slow load.

Our website downtime is expected to be anywhere from 24-48 hours because of domain propagation.
Members browsing the old page will get a message saying "website down for maintenance will be back up within 24/48 hours. If you are viewing this message than your ISP hasn't updated to our new server yet, this is done automatically so you won't have to do anything from your end."

ISP propagation is different for each person, but the general time frame is 24 to 48 hours at the most.
This server move is being done by Wiredtree, so a professional will be doing this, so no need to worry about a thing.
Multiple backups will be made before server move.
