Brits in Crete Forum is on the move
On Thursday January 17th during the day the BritsinCrete Forum experienced an outage. The cause looked suspicious. In the meantime, we were testing a new stand alone server for our Crete Forum under our own security control. We decided that in view of the situation happening to the live website, we immediately moved to a brand new VPS (Virtual private Server) web hosting environment which we had been testing for several weeks already. In any move of this kind, the time it takes for propagation - moving across all the Internet services, country by country takes between 48 and 72 hours to completely happen. The move is to take security to an even higher level while securing our valuable resource and its members and visitors.
Visitors and members may see during the switch over between servers our 'wotsupnow!' announcement or find everything is back to normal. If your area has not yet been propagated to, please be patient. In any event please "refresh" your browser for the page you use to enter the website normally, just in case propagation has happened and you are not benefitting from it. All files and folders are as they were in place at the time of the outage.
Please feel free to access britsincrete.co.uk. The new "location" of our web hosting server is in Manchester in the UK. British to the core.
I offer my apologies for any inconvenience you may have experienced.
Just to mention that our main web site (www.britsincrete.net) is already on a VPS server and has not experienced this outage.
Thank you for your support of the Brits in Crete websites.
