Default TLS moving hosts

Hey guys,

Since we've been experiencing so much problems during the year we've been on our current host (Bluehost), we've decided to move to another one. As it was recommended, we've just set up a new hosting account at Hostgator, which promises equal hosting in terms of capability and bandwidth, but which according to other users is more lenient when it comes to CPU usage and the like.

As an extra added bonus, it allows pron. But we'll discuss that later, .

Anyways, in this thread, I'm announcing that we'll be turning off the forums later today (probably in a couple of hours, whenever I feel like it), to avoid people posting for nothing, and to avoid me having to do the full move later this week when my time is limited (read: when I can't be arsed). The frontpage will remain available, since it is pretty static, just keep in mind that comments you add there may not be transferred over to the new host.

We expect that the downtime will last one to two days, while the DNS updates propagate. After that, we'll have the management of the domain move from Bluehost over to Hostgator as well (although I really should look for a neutral party for that), which should - I hope - cause little problems. Last time the site was down for several days because of that, but I hope I can avoid that this time around.

We will observe the stability of the site once it's moved, and if it turns out to be good, we'll re-instate the shoutbox as well.

Be sure to make a post on the front page about the move.

Also, GJ.

Yay, we're back up, and without any lost posts or the like (it seems), minus the 'fuck' post on the front page. Consult the front page for an explanation on why it took so long.

Note to self: Database transfer first, dns transfer later.

Note 2 to self: mysqldump and source, support ticket for such things.

fyi, I just requested that the domain name be transferred to Hostgator (it's still at Bluehost at the moment, but set to point at Hostgator's nameservers). I don't expect any downtime from that, but it is possible the site is a bit quirky - but I don't believe anything major will happen.

Except for the activity part, there's nothing too great about that

is that the only thing you can think about?

also, the domain should be transferring just about now, I just approved it. Might take a few days though.

Yes, yes it is

But I really hope hostgator works for you guys. I had a friend who was using them and for a couple days his site was really slow so he talked to tech support and they fixed it and he hasn't had a problem since. So they're good with tech support too.
