Although this may not be the most ideal time of the year to have our website go down, seeing how it is one week away from the start of the college football season and people are getting fired up for tailgating, TailgatingIdeas.com and Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com could be offline for an extended period on Sunday, August 25, 2013.
Our hosting company, Hard Hat Hosting, has informed us that they will be performing updates, rebooting and relocating each VPS Node to their new data center located in the same building. Due to the lengthy uptimes of all servers, the systems will check disk on reboot which this process can take up to an hour.
Translation: It means Tailgating Ideas.com and Shop.TailgatingIdeas.com could be offline for a little while.
Not to fear. This is only temporary and if you are able to read this it means our host servers have yet to be moved or the move was completed and we are back up and running. But if you visited and got an error message or come back and receive an error message, that is the reason.
Yes, we understand that it can be frustrating but you have to do what you have to do. We were informed that the moves and maintenance will take place between 12:00 pm central time and 6:00 pm central time. The total estimated downtime should last from 60 to 120 minutes.
Thanks for your patience and we will be back up and running soon bringing you great tailgating ideas, product reviews and recipes along with humor pieces and news that tailgaters and those who enjoy the tailgate party lifestyle would appreciate.
