HostGator vs. imhosted
You probably didn’t actually notice anything, but in the wee hours of last night All That Nerdy Stuff made the jump from one host to another. As of today we’re officially hosted by the fine folks at HostGator. We decided to make the jump for several reasons, but the biggest of these is simple site performance. At our former host, imhosted.com, the site loaded pretty slow and had more than its fair share of downtime.
We believe this was because they simply overloaded their servers with too many accounts on a single shared host. While our new host is also a shared hosting model service they appear to take much more care about how many clients exist on a single server and what the load of that server ends up being in order to ensure a good experience for all involved. We like that.
Beyond sheer speed (which you should already notice, we certainly do!), HostGator vs. imhosted offers a greater array of features that we can use to create a cool experience for you, our esteemed visitor. As a consequence we’ll shortly be introducing some new community features that will enable you to share your own Nerdy experiences, advice and ideas with the world at large. As always, thanks for your visits and your patience through this time; we’re pleased as punch to be able to bring you the best in Nerdiness!
