We are going to take the board offline to avoid data corruption while we transfer data to a server in the same location as our other server ... tonight at 10PM PST the process, I'm told, is going to start. I figure within 12 hours best case it's done.... but could take longer. I may be able to bring the server online faster, but I'm at the mercy of our hosting provider. In theory, this will give less latency between our website and our database to provide the best performance and loading times with our current infrastructure. Enough nerd talk, we're putting the thingy next to the thingy to make the website faster. :) This will affect YTMD as well as GG ... apologies, future goals might separate the two, but YTMD is our sister and she lives in the same room as GG. :) LOL
FYI... Apologies, but it'll help you come up with better conversation I think...
Please also visit Hostgator and complain how long their migrations take - I put in the "Transfer Request (ID:202682)" on March 16, 2016:
