GR8 Fires Now on a New Dedicated Server

Great news that the GR8 Fires site is now running on it’s own dedicated server.

For the last 21/2 years the GR8 Fires website was on a shared hosting platform.

In the time that we had shared hosting, the site was down a few times every couple of months for perhaps 10 minutes to 4 hours, usually during the early hours of the morning, but in general it was fine.

Nevertheless with an increasing number of online visitors and customers, and with Google’s announcement that they’re taking speed loading times into consideration we decided to try and increase site speed, have more control over the server and went for a dedicated server option.

We have noticed an increase in speed and have had no downtime. So far so good.
