It took us some time to tweak the server, but we’re happy to announce that we’ve finally migrated to the new server. There were many unexpected situations and problems that come with self-hosting but with this move, we hope that the server will continue to run smoothly for years to come. Again, a big thanks to Fana for offering to host our website on her dedicated server for free.
There are still a few errors that we need to fix, but they shouldn’t be causing any major issues in the short terms. For now, we will continue to monitor the performance and try to fix the errors. Let’s see how it fares over the next few weeks. This server is way more powerful than our previous host, but that doesn’t mean the site will now load with blazing speed. There are still many other factors we need to take into consideration if we want a blazing fast site aside from a powerful host. What it means is that we can now run more modules at once without overloading the server.
We might look into hiring someone to optimize the site for speed but that’s not set for the immediate future as I’m sure it’ll cost quite a bit of money.
