Nolan Fans has moved to its new server

Hey guys, over the past several weeks, the server that originally hosted the website since its launch has been struggling to keep up with the website's ever increasing traffic. We've been struggling to find a solution for this problem, but we knew all along, that we had to buy a new server...so we did. We moved NolanFans.com over to the new server just after midnight last night, and I've got to tell you - this thing is FAST!

We can guarantee that this new server will have nearly zero outages (versus the one old crashing twice a week) and that you'll be able to navigate through our website faster than ever before.

Have fun with it!

This is a little nerdy, but this graph shows the amount of time (in milliseconds) that Google has spent downloading a page while indexing Nolan Fans.

May 22 is when we switched to the new server. A clear increase in performance.

Check out this. This gives a very good indication about the traffic.

Yea. I was the one who set that up. :lol:
They were showing weird traffic estimates that were completely wrong (Google Analytics is so much better), so I decided to "get quantified," as it were. Now we are directly measured by Quantcast.
