Another Hosting Change Coming
On Monday, HostGator shut down this site for several hours, violating both their unlimited bandwidth and their 99.9% uptime guarantees. They said the site was getting too much traffic, an odd claim for a slow holiday weekend (and a claim not borne out by statistics)!
Earlier this week, we tried transferring to MediaTemple. Several of you commented about how quickly the site loaded on their servers. (We liked it, too.) But even though that was a huge plus, there was a slight problem; due to quirks of the database transfer process, we couldn’t add new posts. We figured that minus counterbalanced how fast the site loaded, so we’re temporarily back to HostGator. We’ll be trying out a new host within the next 24 hours (A Small Orange). As the dust settles, please post any oddities in this thread. (We’ll also be posting updates here.)
