VGOF may go down for a day or two in the very near future

Postby allingeneral » Thu, 14 Apr 2016 21:03:24

I'm looking at switching to a new host due to the exorbitant prices that my current host is charging me.

I believe that my current host may turn everything off tonight. We shall see.

I'll provide updates via Facebook if the forum goes down.

Thanks to all who have helped to support the site over the years! If we go away briefly, just b patient - we'll be back!!

What's traffic like? A Digital Ocean droplet - or several for replication - may be much much cheaper.

I'm looking at VPS solutions with at least 2 cores, 4+GB RAM available (by demand), 2TB+ of monthly bandwidth, and 60+GB of storage (must have root - I hate cPanel and WHM).

I backed up all of my databases last night. Here's the VGOF DB:

-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 373369012 Apr 14 20:38 vgof_db_backup.sql

And here's 4 days of access logs

-rw-r--r-- 1 nobody root 104718756 Apr 14 00:13 vagunforum.net_access_log

I've been very happy with Digital Ocean for my needs:

https://www.digitalocean.com/pricing/

I think I can give a referral for a discount for you? Let me know. I will request that any bonus I would get go to you instead, as well.

You can rent a server by the hour there - that's pretty neat.

Right? Once I have a few skimmed credit cardz, I can go to the library, hop on a college mail server, the buy my server space by the hour... Hack the final target system and pop smoke. No one would be able to trace it AND I save some cash!

Edit: never mind... I forgot I'm using stolen money. I don't care about the savings anymore.
