callofdutyzombies.com is moving

Recommended Posts

This decision hasn't been taken lightly, no move ever is. However, we feel the time is right to make the move to a new server, which will give us more movement, more value for money, better support, better options and less limitations.

So we have decided to jump to a new SSD (Solid State Drive) hosted VPS (Virtual Private Server). It is currently running our test development site @ http://www.codztestsite.com and if you wish to pop over and have a look and check out the speed differences then feel to do so.

We are still doing some optimisation on it but it is a replica of the current forum from Sunday, we have the pagespeeds pretty good, with some additional optimisation required to get us where we want to be but the crunch part of this, is page loads are 1 to 2 seconds - that's a significant improvement and we are looking to get better.

We have not decided a date on when this will happen, but it will happen pretty soon (next 7 days or so). We will make an announcement advising when as it will result in downtime. This is usually 24/48hrs whilst the DNS propogation takes place across the internet (it can be faster, so it's just a case of keep trying when the time comes and keep an eye our twitter/facebook for updates).

It's not an ideal situation to have to do this but the benefits far outweigh the negatives and it is the right decision to do.

Thanks for your understanding and patience.

All good Craig. Although myself and others may not know what exactly what goes on behind the scenes, we definitely appreciate the staff's dedication to improving the site.

And wow, that is so much faster. Any idea how the mobile version compares to the current mobile version?

Is the URL still going to be callofdutyzombies.com when it's all said and done? Or is that changing too?

I don't know much about web development.

The URL/domain will remain the same despite moving over. That transfer between hosts and DNS servers is what the downtime will mostly be about. We're still good ol' callofdutyzombies.com. :D

I know how things can be in the back room here at Codz.

If you believe this is the right course you have my full support.

I'm just sorry I can't be of more help when it comes to the technical side of the site.

Keep up the good work.

We're going to need this when flood gates are opened.

Regards Alpha.

As @InfestLithium said, the domain stays the same. 

All that's changing is the server that supplies us with the tools to make things work and work well - everything remains exactly as it is - just better and faster. The IP address changes, which basically causes the issue of downtime. Until the web understands that the domain name IP has changed (which takes 48hrs approximately). 

Which is both good and bad, good in that it gives us a couple of hours to tweak things and then bad, in that you can't access us for a short period of time.

Hello All, 

OK, so we have started the ball rolling, we will be starting the process on Friday 8th May at 9am GMT, 2am PST, 5am PST, 7pm (OZ time) when we will be migrating the data over to the new server, this means that the forum will be switched off for the switch over.

No access will available after 8am Friday 8th May, it will then take approximately 24/48hrs once the IP address change has been implemented on the domain name before we become available again - we may offer access via other means so keep an eye for this (we haven't decided upon this yet though).

Again, thank you for the understanding and patience but this needs to be done now to prepare us for the surge that will come and to make sure we bring you all a reliable and fast site.

The switch over has been completed, we are now with the new hosts. You may notice increased performance (response time are better). We will be monitoring things over the next few days and making adjustments when required.

Any issues please let us know.
