Moving House

The time has come to up sticks and move Cube Tutor to warmer climes.  We’re changing our hosting provider.

It’s taken a fair amount of work to get to this point but we should hopefully see further performance improvements in our new home.

In order to complete the migration we plan to take the site down tomorrow Thursday 30th October at around 10AM GMT.  The process will involve backing up our entire live database and importing it on to the new platform.  We expect this to take 3-4 hours.  In addition we will need to update our DNS record to point the domain cubetutor.com to our new servers.  This can take up to 24 hours so in the meantime we will publish another URL that you can access Cube Tutor on.

We’ve taken all of the precautions that we can but there is a chance that something may go wrong.  This is the equivalent to moving house in real life, and sometimes the removal company destroys your furniture or you realise that you accidentally bought a 1 bed studio rather than the 4 bed family house that you needed!  For that reason we will be hanging on to our old setup for a week or two so that we can switch back if necessary.  Hopefully that won’t need to happen but you never know.

For the first few days we will be monitoring things very closely and it would be great if you guys could report any problems as soon as you experience them.  The quicker that we can get things sorted, the better.

Cheers!
Ben.
