Forum Moving to New Server
 
PowWows.com's forums will have a new server home soon.

We have been running on the current hardware for a couple years now and need an update. We hope that the new hosting platform will provide much better performance and stability.

We are still working out the details of the migration. With a site this large the migration is tricky!

There will probably be some downtime for the forums during this move. We will do our best to minimize any downtime.

As I know more details, I'll keep you all updated.

Thanks for your continued support!

A little downtime is nothing compared to the benefit of moving to a newer and better server. This is great.

And it is a hosting platform just for vBulletin. So it should be great for the forum!

I've already moved other parts of this site and other sites to new hosting accounts designed for that software. Pow Wow TV and Calendar are running on a new account.

Load time on those drastically improved!

According to Pingdom NativeNewsToday.com went from 4 second load time to 1.1!

Good luck with the move. I hope you don't encounter any glitches. (Stock up on headache meds just in case. LOL!)

Not yet. Looks like the move will start March 1.

We will be closing the forums during the move.

This new server is leaps and bounds faster than the old one.

That's great to hear!

We are hosting with people that really know vBulletin.

They are helping me tune and optimize things.

We'll also be upgrading to a new version of vBulletin soon.

Paul G 03-06-2013 09:30 AM

Is anyone getting emails from the forums?
