DCP Move to New Servers

Recommended Posts

SERVICE INTERRUPTION - DCP OFFLINE AT TIMES THIS WEEKEND

The DrumCorpsPlanet site and forums will be offline this weekend from time-to-time, as we move the site to our new hosting company and servers. We will do our best to keep the interruptions to a minimum - primarily during the late-night hours. However, do not be alarmed if you see a screen that advises you that the site is offline. I assure you that we'll be back 'on-the-air' as soon as we can. Taking the site offline, so we can freeze the forum traffic - then move it, is the only way we can ensure that all threads and posts are preserved during the transition.

We'll also expect that we'll be 'forwarding' traffic for a period of 2 - 12 hours over the weekend. During this time, you may encounter a page that advises that you will be 'redirected' to the DCP site. During this time - DO NOT change your bookmarks. The URL/domain name will return to normal operation - just as-soon as the internet's addressing system (DNS) 'learns' our new location. In the mean time, we'll handle the routing manually.

Thank you for your patience during this activity. Our move to new servers DOUBLES our resource capacity and provides the foundation on which to continue our expansion of the content and services Drum Corps Planet provides. We'll be well-prepared for the summer season and able to fully support our growing family.

Thank you for your support and participation.

Best,

Our move to a new server 'cluster' and hosting company has been completed - helping ensure that DrumCorpsPlanet has a solid foundation for increased traffic and expansion in the coming months. While a few straggling items remain to be resolved thru the weekend, the sites are moved and running fine.

As readers' internet providers start 'seeing' our new location, the site will be available. This process of propagating a domain's 'address change' sometimes takes a number of hours to work its way thru the internet. Everyone should be back to normal by Saturday midnight at the very worst case.

I know there were a few of you that suffered withdrawal pains while we were offline. A special word of thanks to you, for hanging in there.

Thanks to all for your support and patience.
