I’ve been working non-stop for the past five days on discussing, strategizing, and building an execution plan for the imminent migration from a terrible hosting provider. Yes, I’ve made good on my word and we’re going to ditch the… … …
In the last three days I’ve begun executing against that strategy and doing significant tests, optimization, tuning, and ultimately DNS and data migration and management.
Whew. It’s been a pretty intense few days and I’ll be glad for it to be over. There are only a handful of sites to migrate and then we’ll be able to shut things down completely (and forever) over at VPS.net.
One of the larger challenges has been making time for the migration for this growing community since we’re definitely a world-wide team of passionate bloggers who are connecting, discussing, commenting, and joining in conversations on our forum at all times of the day!
When? Early… 2:00am Early!
As such, there’s no easy solution in terms of the “right” time as to when to migrate but I ultimately have to choose one – and so it’ll be happening tonight (or tomorrow morning rather), September 14th at 2:00am EDT.
If you happen to be up then just watch my Twitter stream @TentBlogger for updates and perhaps you can test it for me as I move things around.
If not, hopefully you’ll wake up tomorrow full of rest and energy with a nicer, faster, and more reliable blog!
Three cheers to that for sure! See you guys on the other side! Naturally I’ll share more detail about where we moved shortly after things settle down (and I get some rest)!
