Folks, we are on a new server! Please leave a comment or email via the main contact form of any problems, page loads, access to your accounts.
Feedback on the new server as well as the site is greatly appreciated! We should now have the resources to make a lot of changes to the site itself.
If you can't get through at all, the gmail is oak.robert.
Below is the reason for the move. We're on a VPS with Wired Tree for all geek readers.
About last Thursday we wrote the below:
The Economic Populist was literally disabled by Bluehost hosting company with no warning and no real technical details for the cause. Therefore, The Economic Populist is looking for a new host, a new server home. This will increase costs to run the site.
If you like The Economic Populist, please consider making a small donation, to cover new server costs.
Obviously, out of the blue with no warning, having an entire web hosting account completely disabled under nebulous terms at best is unacceptable by any measure of hosting service, so we must move the site.
Be aware site features are also being disabled in hopes of keeping The Economic Populist online and getting a smooth transition to a new web host. It's still unclear the reason for Bluehost shutting down the entire account without warning and while we are attempting to reduce server load by reducing features, it's anyone's guess on their reasons. We cannot obtain concrete metrics on server load to make sure we meet their requirements. It's Kafkaesque.
Authors, please save your posts. I just cannot guarantee if the site is freezed and while I'm downloading the latest databases, it's possible I cannot save everything.
Sorry for the inconvenience and please consider donating for the server costs if you like the site, want us to keep doing our groove economics thing!
