    Outage & Server Upgrade

    Well that wasn't any fun. :?

    As you may recall, I have received warning messages on occasion from the web host that we had "excessive server processor load." Generally, I have been able to tidy up things & get it back under control, but as we have grown, the frequency of these instances has increased (according to the host).

    This time, without any warning at all, they simply took the sight off line. The only way to get back up & running was to agree to upgrade to a dedicated server plan at a cost of $49.95 per month. I'm not at all pleased with the way this was handled.

    Shopping around for a new host. I'm open to suggestions. Anyone running their own server farm with available space?

    Hang in there,
    Don

    Would you give any thought to a fundraiser/giveaway? The Gretsch-Talk forum just did a great one with prizes donated by Gretsch and TV Jones. $18 per entry. I'm sure the Guild community would be generous in return for this great forum. Here's a few links from the Gretsch fundraiser:

    I've had good service and support from http://doteasy.com/ for a couple of websites over the past several years. I don't think my sites have even close to the traffic or data volume as LTG however, but it might be an alternative if you're seeking one. Like most hosting companies they have different levels of hosting plans, at varying costs.

    Thanks for all your efforts Don, it is much appreciated!

    I ran a board for a couple of years the was Vbulletin based and hosted by GoDaddy....initial setup was a few hundred bucks but after that it was under $20 per month to maintain it.We had a heck of a lot of traffic and some huge graphic files from members. .GoDaddy gives incredible customer service and their fees are not bank breakers. By the way, I have NO interest in GoDaddy or VBulletin!

    British money can be exchanged, but I can see why Don wouldn't want Jerry's underpants. :roll:
