Blink and You Missed It: Systems A No Go
(SoapOperaNetwork.com) — Honestly, the title sounds more interesting than what is actually happening. Later this evening, Soap Opera Network will be migrating to a new service provider that promises better and faster service than we’ve ever received in the (almost) 10 years we’ve been online. What that means is that we will not be posting new content on the site, including our message boards, after 8:00 PM ET/5:00 PM PT. The transition should be short and quick without any real interruption in service. In fact, everything will be so fast that we do not expect any issues with propagation (if you are wondering what that means, see below).
The process whereby the name servers throughout the world have updated their records for a specific domain. For example, if you move your domain from one host to another, it will take around 24 hours or so for the new address to broadcast everywhere. During that 24 hour period, the traffic is decreasing at the old location and increasing at the new location.
Additionally, beginning tomorrow we will be launching our new website on our faster server and will begin loading the content that had been previously promised, but hadn’t been seen. We apologise for not having it up when necessary, but things happen and all you can do is roll with the punches as they say.
Exciting times ahead!
