Thread: New web host

  1. #1

    Default New web host

    We're going to have to move to a new web host soon. Demand for the site probably calls for at least a virtual server, I'll start looking around and will try to give fair warning in the next weeks of the change and potential downtime.

    I know, I had to put in another request for support at they said "sorry, we're working on it."

    We used to go down maybe 2 hours per year, now it's 4 hours per week. I'm going to see what type of specs we can get from the different virtual servers, etc. Course, that's at least $75/month when all is said and done to be sure.

    Wow! Owning a web page is getting to be almost a business for you.

    But don't most businesses go under in two years or .... oh nevermind.

    Well, I still think of this as a hobbiest website. The supporting vendors on here will help the site to expand, so remember to visit them early and often!
