Diabloii.Net Server Move About to Happen


This is a Diabloii.Net technical announcement! Over the next 48 hours we are moving our servers to a new host and also to a new continent. For the past seven years the servers have been located in Germany and this week they will be migrating over to the US once again. This latest measure is an effort to streamline the site’s overheads. You may remember a few months back we mentioned that the site was now in charge of its own finances and this our latest  move to reduce costs.

We hope there will be no downtime but you never can tell with these things. There are a few things we need to sort on the site but we are waiting until the move is complete before tackling those. I am currently pushing the server hamsters as hard as I can!

We would also like to thank everyone who has become a PAL in the past couple of months. Your help is appreciated and it goes some way to making sure we don’t have to rely on the flailing ad market. It won’t be long until ads dry up even more, ad rates get dropped further, and more ads get blocked by visitors. We encourage anyone who enjoys what we do here to subscribe because it helps secure this site’s future.

  1. I have recently started to systematically block ads (almost) everywhere, but I don't feel bad doing it here since I'm a subscriber. To be honest, I don't really feel bad doing it anywhere given the out of control intrusiveness of ad networks. Anyhoo. I also wanted to mention that I'd love swag from you guys! I can't speak for everyone, but I'd happily buy a dii.net t-shirt or mug or what have you 🙂

  2. I'm getting an error clicking on the link to the PAL sign-up page.

    • The one on the main page that says "Support the site! Become a Diablo: IncGamers PAL – Remove ads and more!"Also get an error clicking on the link contained in "Contribute via PayPal on this page."The "Subscription" link in the top horizontal menu works tho.

  3. I think the PAL links should work. Keep in mind you need to be logged in.

    The situation is actually getting really bad so we need to take action now. Only a tiny, tiny fraction of readers of this site are PAL supporters so we still fall well short every month. One thing we do not want to do is end up blocking off the site to everyone but supporters (like the Times) but if it continues as it is then that would have to be considered.

    Elly has once again chucked in a few grand of her savings this month to make the server move possible so you can thank her for that, but she can't keep funding it all so we need to reach out to the community.

  4. I wouldn't mind shooting you guys some bucks, but I'm not touching paypal. Not even with someone else's 10 foot pole.

  5. I feel really bad to see guys like you struggle. Your site has always been the #1 address for D3 coverage, at least for me. Basically the one site many other sites copied from.

    It kind of reminds me of SolInvictus, who managed the only good HGL Site back in the day and eventually quit.

    I wish you guys would just move to another game.

    Best of luck and you don’t deserve this.
