Site News The Register moves home, intros new design

We make our mistakes in public

Today, The Register swaps Web hosts. We're moving lock, stock and barrel to Level 3's colocation facility in London. The domain remapping should kick off at 12pm BST and it will take 48 hours or so from then to complete the propagation to our new IP address. Bear with us.

In recent months, The Register has been bursting at the seams. We've been maxing out on bandwidth and server capacity for four, five hours a day. We are doubling the bandwidth and doubling the servers from two to four (big fat beasts from Compaq). Which means that the site should be faster. A lot faster.

Inevitably there will be glitches, bugs, design catastrophes and we already have a long cleaning-up -around-the-edges list. We will welcome your feedback®
