Time to move server

Post by Sektor » 12 Sep 2018, 14:15

Looks like GTAMP outlived the company that's been hosting it. Where to now?
Hey

We have decided we are going to be shutting down the hosting server.

You are paid up through May 2019, but could you migrate your site to another provider and we will refund you the remaining amount after completed.

There is no huge rush to do this as we pay month to month for the server, but it would be great if it happened sooner than later.

Let me know your thoughts.

Thanks!

Unfortunately, it happens. Here are two possible reasons:
  • 1) Closing of the hosting company (for example its bankruptcy or high competition)
    2) Unprofitable content for third parties (Someone presses on the company to close the site, but who needs it?)
I can not advise hosting because I have not kept my site for a long time.

At least I get a warning and refund. I'll find somewhere.

I moved GTAMP from thirdmanhosting to dreamhost and I finally setup HTTPS.

Let me know if you notice any errors, it's hard to move without breaking something. I still need to update phpBB sometime but that will break so many things, so I keep putting it off.

So far so good.

Am I imagining stuff or is the forum also slightly faster?

I get lower ping and faster speeds on this server. Time will tell if they are reliable.
