I am pleased to let know that this weekend I moved Wire to the Ear from shared hosting at iPower to a Managed VPS (Virtual Private Server) at Wiredtree. The move will most certainly improve downtime especially when the site gets hit with high traffic. The next step will be to install WP Super Cache and improve performance. Thanks for being patient if you visited the site and it was down.

Some of you may have noticed errors when visiting Wire to the Ear. Usually at the top of the site you see “User has exceeded the ‘max_questions’. We are aware of the problem and are working on fixing it. I would like to mention it happens because the site has become very popular which I am really happy about. Thanks to everyone who is coming and visiting, it’s greatly appreciated!
We are going to install a WordPress plug-in called WP-Cache which according to support will help the issue. If it doesn’t fix the problem then we will have to either switch to a virtual or dedicated Server or simply switch hosts.
If you have some knowledge of these kinds of things please leave some comments. Any advice is always appreciated.
