The move was a success!
allnurses.com is now powered with stronger servers, security, and scalability.
We closed the site down Saturday, 22nd, 6am Eastern time to make the necessary changes. Because of work and planning done during the previous 5 days, the necessary changes/testing only took an hour to complete. It was a successful transition.
But that is not the end of the move ... we are now waiting for propagation to take place globally as we changed domain name servers.
Admittedly this is taking longer that we expected. We were hoping that 99% of our user base would have access by now but that is not the case. Many still don't have access.
Changes to the domain name servers or changes to Advanced DNS records require an update to the information stored across the Internet.
This update process is called propagation and occurs when domain name servers (DNS) on the Internet world-wide update their records (DNS tables) to reflect any updates to domain names and IP addresses. The propagation process must be completed for your changes to be recognized throughout the Internet.
DNS propagation takes approximately 12-36 hours.
Basically, what this means is that many ISPs will show you allnurses.com on the old servers / datacenter. When visiting the old location
you will not be able to post, register, or take any action as these settings have been disabled. The site is only available for read-only access. To make things easier for everyone, we added a "read-only" message when visiting allnurses.com at the old
When your ISP updates their DNS records it will start showing you allnurses.com from the new location. You will know this as fact, when you are able to post, edit, register, etc.
For those who are still having issues we apologize for the inconvenience.
