Futility Closet exists as a place to give people a break from the dullness of work, by providing puzzles, anecdotes, and more. It began on a shared host, but was growing too large and popular for that platform.
What We Did – We determined what the traffic requirements and size of the blog were, then made some recommendations. Greg Ross, the site author, decided on one of our recommendations. He had backups of the existing database, so we were able to set up a server and restore the data onto that new server. We configured WordPress and locked down the server, and this blog was moved quickly.
What We Still Do – DJS Consulting still hosts Futility Closet, ensuring that the underlying server receives performance and security upgrades, monitoring site performance, and maintaining regular backups.
