    Well, the server is back up. Kudos to Michael and Sam for getting in touch with me shortly after I posted this.

    Thanks, and you're welcome.

    One thing I forgot to mention was that when moving domains this way, you need to disable mail on the old server as you migrate each account. In cPanel, just check the...

    On Saturday, my "fault-tolerant," "100 percent uptime guaranteed" cloud server was down for 11 hours. Today, it's been down for several hours again. There has been nothing posted here, so when my...

    Thanks to Shane and the Support Crew

    I started with BODhost a few years ago after my previous provider's service deteriorated following a move to a horrid datacenter. I started with the plain-vanilla VPS, and then upgraded to a mirrored...
