About the downtime

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.

About the downtime

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

About the downtime

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 @ WiredTree.com. 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.

RE: About the downtime

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.

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

Pretty Much my only signature...I'm mainly a lurker....you can find me on the IRC (or on DnE and their IRC).

About the downtime

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. :(

Seven crappy hours of our lives.
