JEEPFORUM SERVER MOVING, Support JeepForum - Equipment Drive

Last week JeepForum came under attack by a DDoS SYN Flood attack. Thursday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday morning we struggled to keep JF online as many of you noticed.

This amount of downtime is not acceptable and we do not want to have a repeat ever again.

So on the 13th we will be moving all the JeepForum servers to a new data center in Austin that can better serve our needs. The entire site will be down that whole night as we physically move the servers across town and reconfigure them. There might be additional downtime into Sunday as DNS propagates as our IP address will change.

In addition we must immediately purchase some new equipment, the most expensive being a new Cisco firewall as our current one is maxed out. Our other server equipment should have been able to handle the attack but our firewall could just not handle it and became the bottleneck during the attack.

We have money saved for new equipment but not enough to cover all the expenses. We have to pay setup, 1st and last month rent at the new data center, pay out the last months on our current data center contract plus the new equipment. Just to give you an idea of our data center bill, bandwidth alone is $1400 per month. That doesn't cover power, server cabinet rental or taxes.

Several people have private messaged and e-mailed about donating. There are several ways you can help:

1. Upgrade to Premium Member.

2. Upgrade someone else to Premium Member. Directions on How-To

3. Donate directly by using the PayPal button below.

Please also spread the word about this as most people overlook Announcements and Stickies.

There is no situation that cannot be improved with a small but well-placed explosive.
