.. a friend got a email the other day about her web host shutting down the hosting side of their web operations - as its not profitable - in the first quarter of 2009.

Her web host? Lycos .. NGI web host? Lycos.

Although there was a big chance I'd be moving the NGI site once the current contract was up - I may now look to do it earlier and not take any crap from them if they kick up a stink.

So I'm giving fair warning that when I sort it - the NGI site might be offline a few days as I transfer things.

Don't worry - I won't just decide to do it one day .. I'll give a few days notice at will do it at a time when it suits us best.

Right - it would seem the host has given permission to do it in my time and not in theirs .. which is kinda spiffing of them ..

So - I'm going to do it first with another site I have with them as a test run - so any problems that arise can be identified before doing it with the NGI site ..

Watch this space ..

It will be quite soon .. I've since discovered that not only is the host shutting up shop but also the domain registrar (these hold the details of the www bit in the address bar) - so I'll have to move both the website itself and the www. bit - doing the second bit usually means an extra cost charged by the new registrar.

It will be soon tho - I've already moved one of my webbies elsewhere and didn't have any problems - but the entire NGI site is a biggy so it will take a lot of time and effort to do it and may see the NGI webby down for a couple of days (hopefully not - but you never know) - so I'll want to do it when it causes as little disruption as possible .. Best time would have been over Xmas - but I was drunk a lot and would have found it tricky .. :D

I know you had dodgy sidelines Jay but to publicly admit them is concerning!

Can you put that dogging site back up, I never took any notes so cant remember all the places! :wink:

Ok - the forum will be closing down at some point tonight and temporarily transfered across to http://www.spooktours.co.uk/ngiforums/ before showing up back on the new host in its usual place.

There maybe down time between shutting it down here (I have to shut it down and take snapshot of it there and then) and opening it at the temp place .. but it shouldn't be more than a couple of hours.

Once the temp forum is up and running .. I'll then be transferring the website and the forum to the new host and access to http://www.northern-ghost-investigations.com will be intermittent at best for upto 72 hours.

Good luck everyone .. And I'll see you on the other side!! :shock:
