The website has just switched over to a VPS instead of our old shared hosting solution

This has been a long time coming.
The old site was slow and we almost hit our resource cap each month. This month that happened. We hit our 20gb bandtwidth limit, meaning the site was unavailable for about an hour while we got the website imported to the new VPS.

Is the site still unavailable for your buddies?
Since the host changed, the IP also changed, meaning people either have to wait for their DNS to reset, or clear it manually. A guide for flushing your dns can be found here for both Windows and Mac) https://documentation.cpanel.net/display/CKB/How+To+Clear+Your+DNS+Cache
Linux users, i expect you to know how to do this on your own!  :) 

It still doesn't work!
It is very possibly that your computer is using a DNS server that has not yet itself cleared its cache.
If you know how to change your DNS to something like Google DNS, then you can do this (it is most likely better than your default DNS server anyway)
However i wont actually say you should do it, it is just a matter of time before the site works for you again

The new host
First of all, the new host is cheaper, but i think these results speak for themselves


Old siteNew site


The new site also has a 1TB bandtwidth, meaning we shouldn't hit this cap again any time soon :)

There are still some minor issues with the character encodings, but everything seems to work fine

Awesome work! had a DB error this morning though (but you probably know) Forum definitely feels faster, maybe that's because I know it is, dont know :P

Also if we're talking about phone version of the forum. Where is the "unread posts since last visit" on phone? o: (btw everything still fine for phone on my Samsun s2)

I know just wanted to ask here m8

Maybe I found a temporarysolution for it.
It looks its bc of the announcement secton.

If you on mobile and checking forum and have a long screen to right and its not fitting correct on the screen.  then minimize the announcement section so hide hide it then my phone scale correctly again.
