Moving to a new web host (Updated May 25 2011)

Postby Farzad » Wed May 25, 2011 11:47 am

Hi everyone. Over the next few weeks I'm going to look into moving this website to a new host. This include the forum and the main website. The move should be pretty smooth and at some point I'll have to shutdown the forum for a few hours to move it but hopefully not longer than that. This going to take several weeks so I will update this thread on the progress.

changing plans? To a host that has direct debit so you can't forget to pay? :P

Will the change of host come with a change of forum banner?

I have to admit this joke will never get tired.

I'll save a bit of money but mainly I only have to forget about one hosting company instead of keeping track of two.

It appears the call for an increase in FMB's marketability has fallen on deaf ears. Who forgot to tell?? :(

Indeed.

While we have your ear Farz, put said banner on the Grid Bids site too and give FMB a plug ;).

By the way what's the consensus on pruning posts older than a year with no activity to the Archive forum? I'm about to expand it to more forums. Has anyone been annoyed because they couldn't bump a 5 year old post?
