A while back we (the team leads of the Joind.in project) made the decision to move off of the hosting we were on and up to bigger and better things. Slicehost was a good place to start, but our needs were moving beyond what the little VPS was providing. Through a fortunate series of events, Thijs Feryn set up some space for the project to live on in the Combell servers. This allowed us to more easily set up things like a Hudson instance for deployment and a full test site. Here’s the info from the blog post over on Joind.in:
In recent weeks the Joind.In project has moved onto a new hosting platform. After launching the project in a quiet corner of the server used to host phpdeveloper.org (both are the brain-child of @enygma), it had somewhat outgrown the resources available to it as more and more people used it for more and bigger events.
The new platform is generously provided by Combell, who are a large Belgian ISP. They are familiar faces (and often sponsors) at technical events in Europe, and we’re very happy to have them supporting Joind.In! We now have a dedicated platform for the site, a staging area and a build server, all thanks to the support we have received.
In particular we’d like to thank Thijs Feryn who made it all happen, and of course Combell themselves. You can see their logo in our sidebar and footer, so do check them out.
We’re looking forward to some of the great things this move and new technology will allow us to do in the future of the project. If you’d like to get involved, go over to the github repo for the project or troll through the bug list and pick up something to work on.
Thanks again to Combell and to Thijs for their contribution!
