    Hello,
    Today I'm happy to announce that we will be moving to a new hosting company. Moving to a new hosting provider will bring us better specifications (CPU, RAM etc), faster loading times, a higher server uptime and an improved degree of security.

    What to expect?
    There should be no issues with the move, apart from the DNS change that will temporarily affect the traffic.
    During a 24 hours period, as the DNS is propagating worldwide, our site will be randomly loading from either the old host or the new host. Once the 24 hours will pass, the site will only be loading from the new host.

    Well, if you read this, then you are now browsing MalwareTips from its new server. Not only that, however we are now running on a HTTP/2 connection, so you should really see an improvement in speed browsing.
    As always, if you have issues or questions, just let me know and I'll try to see what can I do to answer them!

    Cruising along here on a new server on HTTP/2 2016 is starting out to be a good year for MT!!
    As always though it is the membership that makes the site so you guys deserve a big "Thank You" also.

    Its not surprise when the expenses for such migration isn't a problem, as this website became daily entrance of traffic where circulation of revenue is active.

    Congratulations @Jack for that wonderful announcement, definitely we are in the flow of emerged technology to follow the overall standards.

    Testing now and besides the request header compression minimizes the bandwidth required further speeding up the loading of pages especially with slow connections, so it is amazing!:)

    And it gets better, "Your website is faster than 93% of all tested websites.".
    More impressive is the fact that previous locations like Amsterdam, London or Berlin where we would be loading at around 4 seconds, now load under 2 seconds...
