All systems go

Posted on August 7, 2010


After about 9 hours or so of panic and stress, we finally got the site up and running and our URL pointing to a new server. A big thanks to Derek for having to deal with incompetent people, staying on top of everything, and getting us up and running.

We had to move and move fast

We were losing a good amount of quality traffic from mashable. Being a fairly new site, we can’t afford to miss opportunities like these. It’s mashable for god sake, how often do you get mentioned at a site of that scale. So we moved all our data over to a temporary dedicated server until we find a new home for feedgrids.

The good thing that came out of this whole ordeal is the realization of how slow our previous host was. You should notice a big improvement in speed around the site đŸ™‚
