Wednesday 25th June (Tonight) 9pm Forum Server Move


Recommended Posts

As you may have seen the other thread I was planning the server move on Friday, as I will be busy I have brought the date forward to tonight. New server has just been purchased and tonight at 9pm.


It's a fairly quick process moving the forum across, what takes the most time is the domain DNS being updated, this is all down to your own Internet Service Provider.


To get back online quicker you can use Google DNS, to do this follow the instructions on this page.....




If there are any problems I will update our Facebook and Twitter pages, if you need to contact me you can talk to me on Twitter using my personal account as I have notifications on for this.
