We're open for business again!

Recommended Posts

We successfully migrated to a new web host. I'm sure there'll be lots of tweaks to come and little problems; there always are.

 

It's too soon to draw hard conclusions, but so far I've really been enjoying my interactions with the new webhost. Their customer service is superb. And we have a lot more bandwidth, storage and performance than we did before. What's more, I have a lot more control over the site and how it functions. What I'm seeing as I write this (in the wee hours of the morning) is windows and pages snapping open almost as if they were struck by a hammer. Hope that keeps up.

Scot;

Just out of curiosity, what webhost did you choose?

Two of my online friends are still getting the page,,,,

"Pardon us while we make a temporary transition. Scot's Newsletter Forums will be back shortly." etc....

 

At first we thought it might be a cache problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

 

Is there anything about the new host, or any changes to the forum software, that could be affecting some users?

BTW: Both are using Windows 7.

I'm one of Pete!'s online friends. He kept saying he could see the site and I couldn't.

I'm not sure what the problem is/was. I could not bring up the site in Palemoon, FF or IE 11.

I finally googled and got in that way.

Yay, I can see!!! :bounce:

Thanks Pete and a Huge THANKS to Scot for deciding to keep the site running.

Two of my online friends are still getting the page,,,,

"Pardon us while we make a temporary transition. Scot's Newsletter Forums will be back shortly." etc....

 

At first we thought it might be a cache problem, but that doesn't appear to be the case.

 

Is there anything about the new host, or any changes to the forum software, that could be affecting some users?

BTW: Both are using Windows 7.

 

Did this problem resolve itself for your other friend too?

Yeah, it can take up to 72 hours for the entire Internet to properly be pointed at a new server after a domain name server change. So it's dependent upon your ISP and backbone carriers that serve your ISP. I had the opposite experience. I'm on Verizon, and where I'm located changed to the new IP in less than 10 minutes. But on previous domain changes, I've sweated through two or more days. I'm glad it was a temporary problem.

 

If you do a ping test of the domain name (the person who has access, that is), you get the IP address of the new server. People whose ISP's routing tables haven't been updated yet can use that IP address temporarily to get through to the new server, like this:

 

http://192.168.1.123/

 

Note: this works reliably with dedicated IP addresses; some web hosts use shared IP addresses. Scot's Newsletter Forums has a dedicated IP with this host.
