    Yay!!!! Wait...we're doing what?

    Well...I love the current datacenter this site is in. Been pretty good, have fought off many a DDoS attack for us, but there has been a lot of unexplained downtime lately, where the DC quite literally has no idea what happened. Every now and again, pings get a little out of control. You might not have even noticed the downtime, but it was there. 99.825% uptime on Saturday. 89.715% uptime last Thursday. Only 99.646% for the last 30 days. That is annoying to me. Make no mistake, since this post will surely be indexed by Google, our hosting servers have been at 100% uptime for months, and they will continue to do so.

    So over the next couple days, InstaFree and WSWD will be moving. This does not affect any of the hosting servers at all...just the main IF site and this forum. Repeat, this does not affect any of the hosting servers at all...just the main IF site and this forum. I promise there will be no downtime (famous last words), and DNS should switch over darn near immediately (within 300 seconds...that's 5 minutes for the non-Math majors), and everybody should be happy in the nice new cozy home. You might have to flush your DNS cache on your computer (command prompt as admin, ipconfig /flushdns) just to be on the safe side.

    During that 5 minute period, there may be the ever so slight chance that you're really posting on the forum that will cease to exist on this server instead of the forum on the new server, but that's okay! I will not make fun of your DNS at all, and will attempt to move the post to the new server.

    Ultimately I hope to, dare I say (Say it! Say it!), have a complete failover solution for the 2 sites, so that if one server/network should fail, it is immediately transferred to another server. The net result???

    100% Uptime...FOREVER!!!

    Where are you moving to? How does the NOC at that datacenter not even know what happens to their datacenter? Upstream provider issues or something?

    That's exactly what I asked them, and they didn't really have an answer for me.

    Guess there's not enough people biting on the datacenter.

    Hope your move is smooth! :)

    Yep! It's crazy. Even as I type this, the network on this server is acting up.
