    Moving our website to a new server 

    We are going to be migrating our main company website to a new server today. So it’s possible there will be some minor downtime for http://mind.sh/are/ – but this will only affect our website, no client sites will be touched.

      UPDATE: Damain dropped the ball on the server move over the weekend, but finally got everything back online this morning.

    WordPress 3.6 Updated 

    We just pushed out the latest WordPress release to all of our clients using our WordPress Security and Backup service. Please contact us if there are any compatibility issues post-upgrade with your website. We don’t expect any issues, but you never know, not all plugins are coded equally.

    mind.sh/are temporarily offline 

    One of the downsides of using a funky domain name like mind.sh is that many of the smaller domain registrars in the world that control lesser known domain extensions (like ‘.sh’) don’t have as good service, support, or security as the more established TLD registrars.

    Earlier today some jerk from Name.com hijacked our domain name by changing our nameservers, even though we already renewed the domain through 2017 with nic.sh. I’ve gone in and corrected the issue, but it will take a while before our site comes back online. I have also requested that the people over at nic.sh double check that we are the only ones with access to our domain name. Name.com is not our registrar and has no business altering any setting on the domain mind.sh.

    Name.com seems sketchy and I will warn my clients against using their service.

    Dedicated server update 

    The new server is up and running and all of your domain files have already been moved. We will be moving the databases over the weekend starting at 12 midnight tonight so the transition should be complete before Monday.

      UPDATE: the database migration is still underway. Should be finished soon.

    • Mindshare Studios 7:08 pm on October 4, 2011 Permalink | Reply

      UPDATE: The move is complete!! All systems have been thoroughly tested and we are happy to report a huge boost in site performance and stability!

    Goodbye shared hosting… hello dedicated server! 

    We are very happy to announce that we will be migrating all of our client domains hosted on Dreamhost’s shared VPS system over to a much faster, more rock solid dedicated server. This upgrade will take place free of charge for our existing customers and should bring and slew of performance and stability improvements. We do not anticipate any downtime during the move, but as we all know, even the best laid plans sometimes go awry. Should you  notice any issues with your site after or during the migration (which we will start in the next week or so after we have done some internal testing) please let us know and we will address the issues quickly and free of charge.

    The specs for the new server are as follows:

    CPUs: 1 (4 cores)
    Processor Grade: Server
    RAM Included: 4 GB
    Disk Space: 500 GB
    Operating System: debian
    Special Notes: RAID 1 (redundant realtime backup)

    This amounts to more than twice the power your website currently has AND has the added benefit of not having to share a server with hundreds of other Dreamhost customers (which alone should make for a much more reliable service). Follow this site for updates!
