Possible Server Move

Post by Stu »

I may have to move servers very soon due to outdated software on the current server!

I am in talks with the sister company of the current host about transferring to them as it would be a smooth transaction

The only sticky wicket at the moment is the monthly cost!

If I stay paying monthly it more than triples but getting a 2 year plan paid in advance its about them same its just making sure I have enough to pay in advance as funds are running low!

I'm not begging for money yet! :lol: just letting you all know the position we are in currently and what we have in store for the near future :-D

Just to keep you in the loop

I have just had a call with another hosting company and have gone ahead and ordered a new hosting package

The cost of this is just over £1200 for 2 years paid upfront!

I will now instruct them to start the process of moving us over to the new servers which will possibly cause some downtime while this takes place
