Intermittent Web Availability
November 15, 2015
For the past few weeks our website has been going through a series of ups and downs. Some people could access the site while others could not. For the past few days the site has been completely unreachable. Our hosting company, the people who actually store the files that make up our site, has been having technical issues, or so they said. After doing a bit of investigating, I found out that the company we use for hosting, the same company I've been personally using for around 5 years, suffered a malicious attack which has brought them basically to their knees. They are losing customers by the thousands and will, in all honesty, probably end up closing their doors permanently.
Armed with this knowledge, I contacted GoDaddy, another web hosting company you may have heard of (they usually run their ads during the Superbowl). I explained our current situation to them and discussed how to expedite the transfer of our site. They have bent over backwards to help us. We managed to quickly get the physical files that make up our site transferred to our new hosting home. They completely handled the transferring of our domain (almdpost228.org) so it would point to the files located at GoDaddy. The only delays we encountered were when we needed to contact our previous host to get them to release our domain to GoDaddy. This process took almost an entire week and resulted in our site going offline for days. I apologize for this. I was hoping to have the site transferred without too much of a service interruption. It didn't work out that way though.
We're back up now. All ties to our old hosting company have been severed. GoDaddy is behind us 100%. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the site!
