Master CoachAccountable and become the best dang coach you can be. Also, news.

Now Bigger And Faster

Well, technically speaking CoachAccountable is about the same size.  But the server on which it is hosted is bigger, and sure enough the CoachAccountable application runs noticeably faster.

On the heels of a pair of downtime issues with the previous hosting provider over the last 7 days, I decided CoachAccountable has outgrown its modest hosting home and deserves a little faster & more reliable hardware on which to run.  Just a few hours ago I switched things over during a maintenance window of just 12 minutes, and things are up and zooming delightfully faster than before.

The difference is most noticeable when you first log in!

    The provider I went with is A2 Hosting. They had nice packages of Ubuntu with full access privileges, which means that rather that go with a standard one-size-fits-all configuration I was able to trick it out in a number of ways for performance. Nginx server, PHP op-code caching, DNS lookup caching, Anycast DNS lookup, PHP5-FPM, MySQL performance tuning, and otherwise super lean and mean.

    Glad you like! A number of other people have emailed to tell me they’re finding it zippier as well.
