We Have Moved to A More Powerful and Stable Server

During the past 24 hours, I was busy in moving the whole sites (our portal site, this blog, chinese blog and qbank) from my previous provider to the new provider, and finally I’ve completed and now the whole sites restore to normal.

Actually during migration, you shouldn’t experience any downtime as we migrated all the data and we maintained the same file structures. The only changes which affected you is our name server has been changed and this may take up to 72 hours to propagate worldwide. But you shouldn’t notice any service disruption as this changes are handled by your web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari etc) dns and cache system.

I decided to move to a new server is because my previous hosting provider in house built control panel arose a lots of problem and due to the limited root access, I can’t install or update the software as well as security patches. When the problem arose, they were giving a lots of excuse and claimed that it came from my side until I proved to them the problem was came from the server side or their end, then only they begin to investigate and help me.

Because it was unmanaged server, so I have to handle everything and I was so irritated for the above mention situation. Until now, they still owed me 2 issue haven’t resolved which they promised me 5 weeks ago. I was with them over 5 years, began from shared hosting, then go to semi-dedicated hosting until virtual private server. I was satisfied with their excellent services until recent.

After doing some research, I decided to choose Servint.Net managed server. Based on Netcraft performance analysis, Servint.Net is one of the best hosting provider, and the most important is the server come with managed service and affordable price. Because it’s a cPanel based server, that’s why I have to migrate my content manually, so it took me almost a day to complete the migration process.
