This week I decided to pay the bucks and upgrade the ModernSurvivalBlog.com server hosting package several tiers higher. We now have lots more horsepower under the hood which should alleviate those intermittent issues that we have been experiencing during the past month which had to do with a variety of technical factors.

Although I had been implementing various experimental methods to patch it all up, I decided that the best solution was to simply upgrade the engine (more CPU processing cores, RAM, etc..).

Our site is under near constant attack by hackers behind the scenes (as are many other sites these days) and the various firewalls (and other issues) required more CPU power to deal with the load while still being able to quickly serve up web pages to meet the normal browsing demands of our users and those constantly landing here from search engines.

I will also be investigating a new website architecture to replace the “old bones” of our current code which has been in place since 2010 and “patched” over the years. Not sure how long that’ll take, but I’m starting the research process…

 
Support MSB: If you would take just a moment to head over to the following link and rate Modern Survival Blog according to your opinion (5-stars is best), I would appreciate it. Every little bit helps keep us in the top tier….
