Moved to a new host – dry run – please provide feedback.

Hello all.

I just moved PoliticallyMotivated.net to a new host. I had to shell out more cash for this host so please provide me feedback on if this is faster or not.

Also, please tell me if you find any broken links or images or posts, etc.

Thanks!

Ashraf

P.S. You can always help lessen the load of hosting by donating =). Even a dollar helps – everything is appreciated! No I am not shy to ask for money.

    If the problem is still there in 24 hours when the nameservers settle we can look into it.

  • And I was being serious….

  • Can’t wait.
    On a side note, why am I getting logged out all the time?

  • Thanks for that Jean. This new host gives pretty good speeds for shared hosting. As a side note, I have another surprise up my sleeve that I will probably reveal tomorrow inshAllah.

  • Are you joking or are you serious? This is blazing fast.

    Jean, do me a favor. Go to start menu -> start. Type in cmd and type in ping politicallymotivated.net. Tell me what your min, max and average pings are.

  • @ashraf:
    You’re down to 8 seconds load time for a site with only a few pics and a bit of HTML.

  • David,
    I am afraid I have no idea what you are talking about.

    Gary,
    I am intrigued. Can you send me more info at admin at politicallymotivated.net.

  • Let me know if you are happy with this new hosting service. If not, contact me. I have my own servers and love what you do and would be proud to help out.

    Under home/Archive/freebies there are comments which light up blue when passed over but only two or three lines of the comments are visible. Can you make it so that pressing ENTER when it’s lighted blue will allow me to read the whole comment? Dunno if that’s worth it or if possible. Just dreaming.
