I'll soon be changing mabination's web hosting, to go from paying about 100$ per month to 30$, by moving the web servers into my home infrastructure.
You guys will still be requesting the website from public facing servers, but they will be cheap-ass 10$ VPSs in 3 different geographic areas set up with round-robin DNS.
It'll look something like that ^
When you request mabination.com in your browser, one of 3 servers in either the US, UK or Netherlands will respond, and act as a proxy between you and my house.
It's already in place for my personal website https://osayidan.net
If you spam nslookup requests on "osayidan.net" you'll see 3 IPs that keep changing their order.
The tentative date for the switch for mabination will be this coming weekend. The forums will be down for an unknown period of time so I can do a database backup and import into the new server, and transfer any files that aren't already synced (mainly avatars that people might have changed).
You will see a "forum is offline" message when it is happening, and if you happen to see a message like "Forum has moved, you're now seeing the old version" it means your DNS has not yet updated to the new one, though this shouldn't happen to 99% of you since I've already set the TTL on the DNS records to be very low.
For those who have no idea what I just said: possibly a big maintenance this weekend.
