Info on the recent outages

If you tried to access this site between March 1 and March 10, 2014, you probably noticed some problems.

As background, this site was on shared server. The shared server was attacked and the technicians managing it were unable to restore the services for about week. Once they did, the site continued to have problems. This site is no longer hosted with that hosting provider.

I moved the site to LiquidWeb, famous for its heroic support. I’ve been running gcgpremium.com (the site hosting study packages such as practice test questions and flashcards) with LiquidWeb and have experienced firsthand their heroic support. It’s not exaggerated.

While I paid for backups with the other hosting provider, I’ve since learned these backups have some problems. I have some issues I still need to tweak on this site, but thankfully it is operational. I’ll be tweaking it over the next week.

As an example, they added a full new objective on mobile devices. Also, some of the reworded objectives require a much deeper set of knowledge. For example, instead of just knowing about the importance of data security, you’re expected to know how to implement security controls to...
