And we’re back! Pretty much.
I’m not going to lie, this has been a TRYING week. Hackers trying their best to decimate us, but we would not be taken out like that! We battled, battled, pulled hair, yelled, but, ultimately came out victorious. Cherry and I realized we could not wait to make the move any longer, researched, found a new host, fought with some more hackers, and finally moved the site to a much better, safer, and let’s just say more expensive host! We are thrilled. We’ve tested their customer service, we’ve checked out the information on their plans and did what we hope is all the due diligence needed. This will help us in a couple of ways.
Security. This is a managed host so we, and our content, will officially be behind a firewall! Not only that but when things like this go down again, we won’t be all on our own trying to figure this sh*t out. Seriously. This is where Cherry’s and my entire week went.
Traffic. Remember when the site would randomly shut down? Though our FORMER server wouldn’t tell us this, we were maxing out our server space. (YAY READERS!) While this new company has a cap, we still have a ways to go before we could ever dream of reaching it. So, this means no more random shutdowns and less Stephanie frustrations.
So In Conclusion. We’re currently working on finishing the transfer, making sure everything transferred properly, and then we’ll take the newly live. As you’ve noticed we’ve been down all week while dealing with this and should be back posting either today or tomorrow. If you notice anything hinky going down, stuff in weird places, please let us know, its kind of like a Star Trek transporter, we dissolve in one space and are put back together in another, hoping our elbows are not connected to our knees.
Thanks, guys! We miss you, we hope you miss us, and we’ll be back to you soon.
