Site News: ROMhacking.net is MOVING to a NEW SERVER!

Update By: Nightcrawler

This is some important news that is going to effect everyone. When this site was started, it was unknown if it would take off, so it was put on deadbeat-inc.com to tread the waters. We have since out grown our current subdomain and host and far exceeded our expectations of popularity. It is because of this we are moving to a new Virtual Private Server (VPS/Semi-dedicated), and officially moving to http://www.romhacking.net. How will this affect you? Read on to find out.

This move is going to happen very quickly. It is expected to go down late this Sunday April 23rd. UPDATE YOUR LINKS. Using http://www.romhacking.net will ensure the best service during the transition. When the move is started, the following will happen:

    br /
  • http://www.romhacking.net/ will NO LONGER BE THE SITE ADDRESS! However, there will be a 'we've moved page' up or limited copy of the site.
  • br /
  • The forum access and all submission related pages on the site will go offline at the old address while the database is synced at the new location. (10 minute process)
  • br /
  • Affective immediately after that, the new location site will be turned on, and forum and site activity will resume there.
  • br /
  • http://www.romhacking.net will start pointing to the new location between a few minutes to a few days after the move depending on your geographical location and DNS propagation time. During this time a frozen version of this page will exist at the old location (archives online, but no forum, news, or submissions).
  • br /

While I have extensivley tested the site and operation at the new server, I do expect we may have some minor growing pains. Anyone experiencing any problems should report it to me on the forum (if possible) or via e-mail (ncrawlerNOFNSPAM@verizon.net).

I'd like to thank SonofMog for being supportive and aggressive in helping to launch this site as well as providing hosting services for the site thus far. I hope to see you all very soon on the new server at http://www.romhacking.net where we will have many new abilities.

Well nightcrawler... if you ever need any help with anything web-like... I'd have to say that my best profession now... I've done more html, php, xml, xhtml, sql, and flash than I have done anything else in my life in the past 2 years... just ask...

Nice to see the move went well.

How long should I keep the other site up for??

and should I keep the contents up even when the I take other site down, you know, for archive purposes?
