It works on the old address for me, so all seems well. Not only that, it's loading quickly. On the old server, it was often slow, sometimes very slow. And there was a lot of down time. Hence the title of this post. Good move, Percy.
It'll be interesting to see if the rate of people joining increases noticeably, and the general traffic rate.
I forget if I've already mentioned this, but the old server was a very old 1.2 GHz Pentium 4 running Fedora 1.0. The new server is a 2.4 GHz Intel Core (dual cpus) running Centos 4.7. I'm hopeful that it will prove to be more robust and reliable. For web hosting software I'm now running Plesk instead of Ensim, still feeling my way around.
The name server update hasn't propagated to my ISP yet, but I'm glad to hear that at least one person seems to have it already.
It's running an open-source version of Redhat Linux called Centos 4.7.
I don't have any evidence that email is working yet. I set my account to receive email notifications and I'm not getting any, but this could be due to the gradual propagation of the name server information. If anyone receives an actual email notification please let me know, it would help confirm one more thing that is working.
