Website changing hosts soon ----- No worries!

Postby Corey » Sat Oct 23, 2004 7:10 pm

I would just like everyone to know that I will be moving the website off of my t1 to a hosted service. This service will have 10 different backbone connections:

UUNet (GigE)
Sprint (GigE)
Level 3 (GigE)
Global Crossing (GigE)
Verio (GigE)
AT&T (GigE)
Time Warner (GigE)
Allegiance Telecom (2 x GigE)
Broadwing (GigE)
AboveNet (2 x GigE)

Which will allow even faster connection from coast to coast. I am not exactly sure when I am going to make the switch, but you might see a ' Be back in a few hours - site maintenance ' message in the next upcoming week. All posts and pics will be brought over AT the time of the switch. I am currently working on the new server to make sure everything will be seamless. I will bring the dns lease time down to an hour on my current DNS servers and have them point to the new IP. The following day I will switch the DNS servers over to the new host. There should be no more than a 1 hour time frame when the site is down. During this time,, the old site will just show the message... and the new site will be live. Hope I didn't make this too confusing. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. Thanks --Corey

Ok,, the site has moved .... everything seems like it went fine. Please let me know if you see anything unusual while you are tooling around. Also, please let me know if the site is loading any faster or slower. Hopefully there wasn't too much ((if any)) inconvenience.
