Winksite is currently serving 20K publishers, a quarter million monthly users across 150 countries, and continues to grow daily. While our data center has performed well with next to zero downtime, recent increases of traffic have made some aspects of our service a bit sluggish to visitors at certain points of the day.
To head off any nasty, unplanned interruptions to service we have planned a necessary upgrade to our servers. Part of this upgrade involves moving our database to a larger, faster server that will accommodate future growth. Unfortunately, this requires us to take Winksite offline for several hours on Thursday, Nov 30th.
We apologize in advance for this interruption of service and promise we will do everything possible to keep the downtime to a minimum. We’re really excited about the performance increases these upgrades will bring (yep, we’re geeks) and look forward to providing all of you with continued mobile access to the content and connections you have grown accustomed to."
