Alert – Web server host migration on June 19, 2018

Dan York
By Dan YorkDirector, Online Content

As you may have noticed, our shiny new website has some speed issues. It is slow for many visitors. Over the past few months we’ve worked on a number of potential changes to improve the site performance. One major change we’re making is to move to a different hosting provider.

That change will happen tomorrowTuesday, 19 June 2018 at 13:00 UTC.

Assuming all goes well, you shouldn’t really notice – except that the site should be faster! But if you happen to be browsing the site around 13:00 UTC, you might see some glitches on pages while the DNS magic happens and we change to pointing to the new server.

Once we’ve made this migration, I’ll write more about what we have done and how it has helped our site’s performance. Meanwhile, I just wanted to give a quick alert about this impending change to anyone viewing our site.
