I moved CEX to a new server today. I had been operating on a VPS which is a fairly powerful solution but I still share some resources with other users on the server.  The hosting provider throttles some parts of the account. So that I don’t take all the resources on that server.

Now CEX is  on its own server. I surely hope that this is the last upgrade I need to do any time Expat In Cebusoon. 🙂 A little over a  year ago, I could host this and all of my other sites on a $29 server. Now, I can’t do that. I wont say what the cost are but they are a lot more.

The main reason I’m making this public is because there is a slight chance you could make a comment and then have it disappear. I do not think this will happen because I have a fairly complicated setup. The website seems to already be served from the server for everyone. I still have one more change to make though.

When I make the change, it will take about 48 hours for the entire Internet to know exactly were everything is. Because of my unusual setup, I think this will only affect one site and it gets almost no visitors. There is very little there and what is there is ugly. haha

I just wanted to let everyone know, that in case something disappears over the next two days, that would be the reason why. You didn’t do anything wrong.

I also need to make a test post to make sure everything is connected properly. That is to make sure it shows up. The site should be substantially faster and I think it is. I’m noticing a huge improvement but that could just be my wishful thinking or even be a temporary improvement of my Internet connection. The test I just ran on my connection though do not indicate my Internet connection has improved. In fact, with the amount of  “data loss” that I have, I’m surprised my net is working at all. However it is. 🙂

Please let me know if you have any usual problems on the site.

I’ll also take a few seconds to plug the CEX Forums. The forum is only a couple of weeks old, less actually. However it is already getting significant use. A forum is a great place to hold conversations with others with similar interest. If you are a single Filipina, it is also a great place to get to know some single future expats. Meaning you might be able to lure them on over before another girl does. LOL I know not all Filipina are interested in such but some are.

Are there any graphic artist out there that would be willing to make a log for me?  I could really use one.

There is a ton of great information there so you should get yourself over there! Here is the link.
