Yet More New Hosting

Post by bahua » Thu Aug 04, 2016 11:26 am

I didn't have any major problem with the place where the forum was hosted. Though it was annoying from time to time to have to login and restart the database, as the server had 1GB of memory, and there were some times when the database would hit that cap and die.

But that server was costing me $10 a month, and I don't like spending more money than is necessary. I recently discovered a new hosting service that lets me build a cloud based server for $48 a year, and has 4GB of ram, 4 CPUs, and 40GB of storage. So I migrated the site to it last night. It appears to work pretty well.

What do you think?

Didn't even notice - which I imagine is a positive.

Sure. I'd rather people go about their business than for me to cause a problem.

Good to know you're out there looking over us, even though you don't visit us much anymore. Thanks! In support, I will buy you beers next time I see you and I implore all KCraggers do the same.

False. I caught you for a split-second at the Flying Saucer on the day it opened. You even tried to escape unnoticed.

I work with servers hosting sites and have for a decade professionally and twice that for myself. I second not noticing anything.

For the price I don't pay, I consider the uptime and speed more than sufficient. An outage every now and then is not something I will complain about

Thanks for your hard work (and money) for this site, bahua. This site has basically been a lifeline for me for years.... and I don't have to put up with ads.

I'm willing to chip in a little something to help, if need be.
