Moved To New Dedicated Server

A few weeks ago, I posted about the server issues that we’ve been having with one of our shared hosts, who kept insisting that our sites were putting too much of a strain on their server. It was becoming a huge nuisance, as every time their server load would get high, they’d point the fingers at us, and suspend our account! The communication breakdown we had with them was frustrating, to say the least.

(Strangely enough, we had a number of other sites hosted on two other shared hosts, and we hadn’t had a SINGLE PROBLEM in over 8 months!)

But in the end, we decided to just consolidate all of these sites onto a single dedicated server, and that’s what I’ve spent the past 3-4 days doing. Nothing says fun like moving 40 database-driven sites onto a new platform, and working out the kinks in real-time!

In a perfect world, I would have mapped out an extensive migration plan, but time was of the essence. In the end, everything worked out for the best – Our new server company is great, and we got a great deal thanks to a special promo that they were running!
