Welcome to our new server home

June 26, 2018, 11:40 AM · Hello Violinist.com readers,

If you are seeing this, your ISP has successfully redirected you to our new server host. We have not changed the site's design - only where we are hosting it. Hopefully, this will lead to improved performance as you read Violinist.com.

Thanks for being part of the violin community!

I may be wrong, but for a while I've been suspecting there was something amiss with the previous host - their server regularly being down for a few hours on almost a weekly basis for maintenance didn't seem quite right for a professional hosting service!

(Just kidding, but the server issues you've been having are very early to mid 2000s-ish).

Edited: June 27, 2018, 7:49 PM · Thank you so much for finding the new server. I've suspected for a while that something was wrong with the old one.

I have a quick question. Is it possible to incorporate page navigation links in order to more easily access old threads (the May 2017-May 2018)?

June 28, 2018, 10:56 AM · Robert, Nice to meet you. Thanks for all of the diligence that has led to a much better experience for all of us!
June 29, 2018, 1:55 PM · Seems pretty quick now, thanks.
June 29, 2018, 2:55 PM · Working much better.
