Moving the website to a new host

Moving the website to a new host

The ImpressCMS project is moving! Physicall that is, because while we move from one hosting company to another during this week, we will remain at the same address as always -

INBOX, Marc-André's company who has been sponsoring us very generously with free hosting, notified us a few weeks ago that they would need us to find another hosting provider because they were in the process of closing down their hosting business. We didn't really see that change coming up, but it has to be said that Inbox has been sponsoring us since the beginning of the project, which is a long time, for which we are very grateful.

During CMSExpo 2012, we had made contact with several hosting providers, and after some discussions we have decided to partner up with Siteground

We already worked with Siteground to speed up the addition of ImpressCMS to the Softaculous one-click installation catalogue, and they also have a specific ImpressCMS hosting section on their site, with lots of tutorials on how to install and administer our CMS. Also, Siteground offers hosting on our 2 main continents : Europe and the US.

We will be migrating quite a bit of data in the coming week, so don't be alarmed if response is slow or if the site is behaving strangely at that specific moment. 

Once the migration is complete, I'll be back with a more formal introduction of our new hosting sponsor.

Lots of thanks to go out in this post - thanks to Marc-Andre & INBOX for all the years of hosting the ImpressCMS sites, thanks to our new host, SiteGround, and thanks to David for finishing up the details for selecting a new host!

This is our 5th year in the open source community and the beginning of new opportunities and challenges. Let's make this a great thing for us all.
