For 7 years MFT was hosted by this one hosting company. Things were good for the first couple of years as MFT was just a tiny fish in the big pond. Soon MFT got more popular and we started to get more people to join our online community. That's when things went bad. so bad that even a few of the members here had the direct line to their support team. haha! their favorite saying was: i'll just reboot the server.
So I found a new hosting company that had great settings for MFT and they even offered to move it for free! Me being as non-techy as possible when it comes to these things happily agreed. 2 weeks of ridiculous back and forth with their support staff drove me insane....for example...
me: the server is not working. i can't see my forum.
anyways...2 weeks of that drove me insane. i left and found a new hosting company that was more expensive but their staff was way more responsive. with the help of a good friend, i was able to move MFT to it's new home yesterday. hopefully this will be the last and final move and i can concentrate on adding more stuff to MFT.
so there you have it...moral of the story? 3rd time's the charm!
