Site Downtime Explained

November 26, 2007 at 7:33 pm (site news)

The world’s leading celebrity gossip site (in my head at least) has been down due to MediaTemple.net being a bad host.  I won’t get into details, but it took them 36hrs to reply to my FIRST tech support request to which they gave me the wrong solution to fix it.

It was completely their fault and they are trying to make it better by giving me a few months of free hosting.  So this taught me a lesson, good support is hard to find.

If you know of a web host that is similar to MediaTemple’s GridHosting package in the 20 to 50 dollar price range then please let me know.

New Hosting Provider

November 8, 2007 at 1:42 am (Uncategorized)

I will be very brief here and just explain the situation.  CelebrityPWN has changed hosting providers because we basically outgrew the last one as traffic kept increasing and site load time kept increasing as well.  I thank http://www.digitalshell.com for their hosting and the people behind it.

MediaTemple.com is the new hosting place should load 2x as fast and have no downtime. This move will allow the site to grow much quicker plus allow me to work on other side projects as well with ease.

If you were logged in and saw a message on the top of the header that directed you here, its because your on the old site location.  Each Internet Service Provider (ISP) has DNS that tells it where the website is located.  Your ISP has yet to update it.  This could take an hour or it can take 12, but for now if you make a vote or comment it wont be saved.

I will try to make another post before Thanksgiving and tell you guys about new site features.  Until then, I have to finish with some other projects.
