Server Migration

Recommended Posts

Just a heads up everybody.

 

It seems my hosting company (based in Canada) for my server has gotten themselves a presence in the EU and wants to pump 20% VAT onto my bill. I have had a server with them for about 4 years now and they have been a good service provider but from a financial point of view I can get a better deal elsewhere so I need to move the site. 

 

I will start planning now and will keep the downtime to an absolute minimum. 

 

I will keep this thread updated as I go along - hit the follow button if you want email updates.

Shame, this site runs like clockwork. The only other option is to vote for the beer-n-fags party in the vain hope they get in, we get out & no more 20% vat.

I have access to the new VPS and I must say, the speed is much better than the current server. Hope it stays that way. I have a few websites, I will transfer them over the next few days.

Weird! Guests now can post too?

 

Not any more - thanks for letting us know :)

 

 

1and1 if the vps is not up to scratch... 

 

 

Knownhost would be my second choice, they are a brilliant host. I went with UK2 because the VPS's are on SSD and I wanted to try that - so far i'm impressed.

I'm going to do the migration at 3pm.

 

To reduce problems with the database I will close the forum for the duration of the migration.

 

Hopefully will only take about 30 minutes.
