We are extremely pleased to announce that canis has very generously offered to provide dedicated hosting for the site, free of charge (to us, not him). We are currently on a shared server which has started to show signs of strain due to us outgrowing it, so this couldn't be better timed. The new server will be more powerful, faster and will allow us to install some additional features, most notably enhanced search and caching. Normally the minimum cost for something like this would be many hundreds of pounds per annum, so we are very grateful to canis. We also need to thank Mike who has offered to do all the server management: software installation, configuration, maintenance, etc. Without which we wouldn't be able to move to an unmanaged server (and managed servers are much more expensive). Thanks guys. The move won't happen for another week or two so plenty of warning will be given as there will be some downtime as everything is moved across. Fortunately there's a three week break after Bahrain so there shouldn't be too much disruption. While the migration is in progress, the site will be unavailable - a notice will be displayed indicating as much. Depending on how long it takes for the DNS to propagate, it could be up to 24 hours before you can access the new site. This will vary for each member, depending on their location, ISP, etc. Please keep trying periodically and eventually you will be able to access the site on the new server. When you can view the forums without the notice and are able to post, then you are on the new server.
