Welcome to our New Server

Post by ProvoAggie » April 3rd, 2018, 1:47 pm

Because of slowdowns and outages over the past few weeks, USUFans.com Management decided that it was best to move the website to a new web server to better handle our growing userbase. That move has now been completed. Hopefully you will notice a dramatic improvement in performance. In addition to the performance and stability improvements, you may also notice that the site now has https support for increased privacy and security. Please let us know if you encounter any problems.
Thanks

Dramatic improvement in performance is very noticeable. Great job! I'll second what gus said about appreciating what you do for the rest of us.

Making USUFans Great Again!

Thanks Aglicious and ProvoAggie!

I guarantee you that most of the pissiness on board in recent months was due to too much waiting on pages to load. That is the only viable explanation.

Thanks for all your work. It’s always better to be able to fight and insult each other in real time 😉.

But seriously, thank you. It’s a great site.

Things should load faster now but everything else should be the same. Adding https was a requirement of future versions of Tapatalk though.

Many thanks. The slow loading was intolerable.
