A Season of Growth
Well, first the good news: The Paragon Wiki continues to enjoy astounding growth. Now, the bad news: The Paragon Wiki continues to enjoy astounding growth. We are now seeing well over 1,300,000 page hits a month and have increased traffic and visitors by around 35% in the first quarter of 2007. As a result, the Wiki has officially outgrown its shared host and needs to be moved to a location that can handle the amount of resource load placed on its server.
We are currently in the process of acquiring a virtual private host to be the Paragon Wiki's new home, and this week, perhaps extending into the weekend, we will be setting up the new server and moving everything over. Ideally, this process will be completely transparent, and no one will be any the wiser until the yellow banner at the top of this page goes away.
In reality, there will be at least a little bit of downtime while the transfer is in process, and depending on how well the move goes, that downtime may extend to longer than "a little bit." We'll certainly do our best to keep at least some sort of notice posted on the progress.
We're sorry in advance for any prolonged outage, but rest assured that we are working diligently to make this transition as quick and painless as possible.
