do you have any plans to upgrade the servers to handle the extra traffic?
or to stop new sites being registered to cope?
thanks for the quick replies

Plans yes but they cost money so kind of need more visitors before we can afford to buy new servers.

this i do understand m8.
I for one would be willing to pay for a premium service , i am sure others, who have permanent sites  would also chip in to cover costs.
Don't get me wrong creata, most of the time the server is solid, and love the layout, but problems are becoming more frequent, hence my query,

Yes, I too would be prepared to pay for a better service. Slow running seems to be the norm at the moment. It seems fine for a while, then before you know it, it takes ages to load a page again.


I appreciate the financial problems involved - don't get me wrong. However, I can see if this problem isn't resolved, our subscribers will give up and move on to other forums. That, of course, would solve the problem, but not in the way which we would like!

It is something I have looked into and have made some changes with some queries to make it faster.

All forums just another ddos attack on our site. Looking to some options at the moment to help prevent it.

Just site back and wait hoping early sunday waiting for a big upload to complete. You will have to do something when I move everything away but will give you all a heads up and maybe a better way going forward.

My forum was down for 2 days, along with every one else. Finally able to log in, but to my horror, whatever problem happened with the servers of whatever it is, it reset everything back to original template. Everything is gone. All the customs I made...gone. Anyone else having the same issues?

That is coming back next. In about 6 to 8 hours once the zip finishes extracting.
