My host changed the IP without giving me any advance warning. So I had to email them to have them tell me what to change it to. Stabhead

So anyway, it's up again now, but I'm pissed off at their incompetence, so I will be moving to another host sometime.

I'm glad you could get it sorted out, and share your disappointment in our current host. Good luck finding a more reasonable one.

I already know where I'm gonna be moving to. I'm done with shared hosting - gonna move all my sites to a $50 VPS @ I already have a $100 hybrid VPS there for hosting Hardware Compare, and it's by far the most reliable service I've ever had. If there's even a 1% chance that there might be some downtime in the future, I get an email about it. There usually isn't any downtime. I like it when everything just works. They even installed some custom stuff for me.

As an extra bonus, we'll be able to handle a lot more users at once.

Just need to figure out if they can set up the DNS the way I want it, or if I have to use something else for that.

That's good. I came on here last night and was scared that this was the end of School Survival. Hopefully your new host will be better than this.

I thought SS was DEAD!

Serriously that's horrible hosting practices, if the IP is changing then EMAIL THE USER ABOUT IT.

This was scary. There's been at least a downtime almost every year, looking at the "possibly related threads" window below this thread. I thought SS was gone. :(

Oh wow. More epic nostalgia down there.

I nearly died from lack of SS.
