Guys and girls,

My host has contacted me asking me to move the site out of their serves, it is attacked evry often and is causing problems for other users with the downtimes, I am in contact with them to se what can be done and how long they will give me to move, as right now it is troublesome to me to do so.

The thing is, this minor issue may come into a greater problem, or not, I can't be sure yet.

Just though I should let you know.

Raoni.

Nif,

   Let us know what needs to be done so we can help with the move (if required).  Do you have a timeframe and do we need to start backing up information?

Eric,

I am waiting for more information from the current host, first I will have to find a new host, then I will have to see prices and probably clear my credit card, what is gonna bite me real hard right now, but that is life. Other than that i will backup the DB and all the files of the sites, the move will be made only to a server that can set it all up as it is here.

I just wanted to let you guys know, specially because they said the troubles are caused by constant attacks on the site, meaning it will be there wherever we go...

Damn... the Shadow really hates this site...

Tell us what need be done. And i'd be willing to pitch in for the new host payment.

Nif, I echo the others...let me know what I can do to help...

Is there any way to stop the attacks?  Can we institute better anti-robot protections?

The only way to truly avoid the trouble is to change the domain name for the site, and that is troublesome by itself too. Other than that wherever we go we will have trouble, as the attacks will go with us, the server told me it is spoof mail attacks that are causing the issue and there is no real way to avoid it other than leave the domain aside.

Anyone would be particularly hard against a domain name change? I will see how long we can keep the old one linking to the current one (and thus have troubles for some more time) before they run out of patience..

Would something as simple as a .net change constitute a name change?

I know .net addresses are different from .org addresses, but i'm not sure exactly what the difference really is. If the site has to be moved anyway, maybe it's worth looking into.
