    Default MacGurus Lives at New Host

    MacGurus Store and Forums are now hosted in Texas at HostGator. HostGator is a big outfit, and the way business is flocking to Texas, probably a good omen. (no Damien, sorry, omen is NOT referring to the movie about you!)

    Utah based Westhost did a good job for us for 4 or 5 years. But lately the problems with our website have been building and seemingly unfixable. Certainly beyond their support capabilities. Like order emails getting delayed on the server for up to 4 or 5 days. Hard to do business that way.

    So time for a new host, and 24 hour support is, so far, pretty impressive at HostGator.

    Let us know if you see anything funky..... or at least funkier than you expect from MacGurus Just finished laying down the databases.

    Thanks!

    Thumbs up

    Congrats. Never fun to do, but hopefully well worth the hassle, and clean sailing ahead.

    I wish they were not so poorly managed. USPS was 6 billion dollars in the hole this year. Eventually it will catch up to them. They do a pretty good job of accomplishing their mission.
