We are pleased to announce that we’ve moved SurvivalBlog’s primary dedicated server offshore, to Holland. Please take a minute to write down our new dotted quad address on a notecard, and keep in your wallet. It is: 188.8.131.52.
It is quite important that you keep this number handy. Why? Because if our domain name is ever hijacked, then you will still be able to reach SurvivalBlog by entering our dotted quad address into your browser’s address window. But please use only https://survivalblog.com for your regular bookmark to the blog site. This helps us quantify our site visits.
Note that with some web browsers, our recent server move means that you may receive a new security warning. You may safely ignore that warning and set a permanent exception.
We’d also like to announce that we are now seeking backup server space in any of the following countries: Canada, Luxembourg, Norway, Iceland, Finland, Switzerland, Serbia, Czech Republic, Israel, Kenya, Cape Verde, Namibia, New Zealand, The Philippines, Tonga, St. Kitts & Nevis, the Cayman Islands, Honduras, Chile, Uruguay, or Paraguay. If you have any free server space available in any of those countries, then please let us know. Note that the bandwidth requirements for the backup servers will be minimal unless our primary server comes under a DDOS ping attack.
