Hopefully some of the GRT regulars will think to look here…
OneWorldHosting offered to move GRT in light of all the problems we’d been having this week. I was told downtime would be 10-15 minutes. So I said “Sure, let’s do it.”
That was about 4 hours ago. As of now, the site isn’t back. I called OneWorld and spoke to the person who offered to move it. She said there was a problem with the script that moves sites, and that she’d handed it off to an admin who is supposed to be working on the problem now. She said she would *like* to get it done today so the site is up for the weekend!!
End result…I have no idea when the site will be back up. If it isn’t restored by OneWorld by the end of the day I’ll try and get a new host for it, but that’ll mean DNS changes which will increase the amount of time it’s down. The worst part is, I’m going away on Sunday, so if it isn’t back by then, it won’t be for another week. And at that point I don’t know if it’ll be worth bringing back online, as people will have gotten out of the habit of visiting.
If anyone ever asks your opinion of a quality place to host a website, PLEASE tell them to stay far, far away from OneWorldHosting. They used to be excellent, but it appears that times have changed.
