The site migration and maintenance is complete. The site should now be working properly and running at top speed.

For those who don't know, the site has been in the process of a migration over the past few months and in the past few days, that process has been finalizing. This migration was a mandatory hostgator migration and I'm real glad it's finally done. This also means that the site wont be going down at 6 AM (central time) every day due to backups, it'll only go down once a week now at that same time for a single weekly backup.

If you have any questions or feedback, please post them to this thread.


Thank you all for your patience and loyalty to Vizzed.com

mrfe : I don't really want to say but you'll find out if you're on at that time.

On a scale of 1 to 10, easily a 10 lol. It's a huge relief to have such a burden taken care of. I always hate doing server migrations, they're time consuming and things never go the way I want. Surprisingly, this migration went well compared to previous migrations, even if it took forever to finish.

I have 1 or 2 more migrations happening sometime next month but those migrations wont cause the site to go down and most likely wont affect anyone (although it might cause one of the netplay servers to go down). That migration involves placing the RGR games on a faster server which will cause the RGR games to download a lot faster for both the users who own the Download Accelerator item and those who don't.

In my opinion the site IS faster. Thank you for updating us. Your a great site owner. Plus this site is amazing by itself. Honestly I was mad that the forums where down, not the games, I've lost interest in them, but the forum is amazing. I cant stress enough how thankful I am. I cant wait to see what else you have up your sleeve. Keep um coming David.

Davideo7 : You're welcome, I willing to bet we're all as glad as you are that this site maintenance is finished as alot of us enjoy working on this site or just coming on here to take time to relax. We should all really be thanking you and many others for taking this site so far from when it first started even compared to how it was in 2010 to where Vizzed is now & what is planned to come.

I certainly do not mind one bit at all about having a single weekly back-up, because as long as the site will continue to work once it is completed. Once again I'd like to say thanks for what you've done for this site & have a nice day!

Davideo7 : Will the new server your moving the games to be able to support resuming broken downloads? I ask because last week I tried downloading Final Fantasy VII and it kept resetting itself. It would get about halfway to 75 % and start over. I eventually hit my data limit and had to give up. Just wondering if it could do this or at the least be a lot more stable.
For larger games it would be a big help.

A faster Vizzed makes the world go round, eh?

I'm glad it's faster and that it goes down at 7AM one day a week. I don't even wake up at 7AM, so yay. .

Will it stop going down at random times as well? I almost completed a game, and then Vizzed went down. :/

David, in your first post it says that it was at 7 am central time, but it really goes out at 6 am central. I am always on Vizzed at 7 am eastern, which is when it is down.

Glad to hear it's finished. It's about time since you've been dealing with this off and on since the end of July.

If they were my hosting company, I would have found someone else...just based on how you were treated during whatever they had going on back in the summer. But I understand that it's not the easiest thing for you to do to change everything to a different host.

Anyways thanks for all the hard work David. I appreciate it!

Jordanv78 : They did have a lot of servers to transfer so I understand why it took so long, just unfortunate. They also gave me a full month free for one of my servers, which is a $375 value so they at least made it up to me in some way. They've also upgraded their server plans and the new updates are insane, puts their prices above and beyond Godaddy's. My main file server is still with Godaddy but I'm going to transfer it to hostgator because for $75 more, I would go from 10 TB bandwidth to 25 TB, 100 Mbps uplink to 1 Gbps uplink (that determines download speed of files) and an overall far faster server. With the new changes hostgator has done recently, I'll probably save $500+ a month on server fees, which is a big deal since the site's traffic and ad revenue have dropped so much over the past few months.

This update really made the site run so smoothly now and since the maintenance was completed, the site didn't lag at all which I think is a huge improvement.

At 6 A.M. I'm rarely up mostly if it's something important I have to do that morning, but on other normal mornings, I normally get up at like 9:00 A.M. so I won't get affected with the downtime for that one day a week.

Davideo7 : That's cool that they did that for you. Honestly, you deserved it after they kept you in limbo for so long this summer. I just couldn't believe how they were just like "oh well" with regards to having your site down for so long without much word on what was going on.

Anyways it sounds like Vizzed has a pretty sweet setup now. Glad that everything wasn't "all for nothing"

Thanks again for all the hard work David!
