    May 18, 2008, 1:25 AM - Semi-Dedicated Server for TDH #1

    As many of you know, we have been having growing pains in regard to our hosting service and have received numerous complaints, especially in the last week. We have been on a waiting list to be moved to a "private" (actually a semi-dedicated) server for some time now and today we got the notice that we are being moved!

    The cost is higher, but hopefully the service will be far superior! PLEASE post here and let us know if you ever get a "500 Internal Server Error" on your site, or can't log in, or your site is really slow, or really ANY problems at all... This will help us determine just how much of the server resources need to be dedicated to our site.

    I have never had any problems with the "posting" services here or recieved a error since being a member here.
    "higher cost" does that mean it will be passed down to the comsumer?Just curious how the higher cost for the new server will be absorbered on a free to join fourm.
    Which reminds thank you for the hard work the Admins do to keep this fourm as healthy as it is :thumbup

    There are no "consumers" at TDH, just members. We do ok on paying for the board without charging our members although from time to time we have asked for donations. At this point we are doing fine and don't expect any change other than better service from our host.
