Metal Gear Informer should be faster and more stable now

Metal Gear Informer has upgraded to a new hosting plan. You may have noticed during the past couple of years that the site would sometimes become slow, or even go offline from time to time. The reason for that was simple: the website has become too big for the server to be able to handle the large amount of traffic.

We have been speaking to our provider about this, and what it came down to is that we had to upgrade to a bigger hosting plan, one that was more capable of handling the current amount of pageviews.

This upgrade brings two notable advantages: the site will become more stable, and it will become a lot faster (about 66% apparently), due to the use of a content delivery network.

We hope you’ll continue to use this website as the go to source for Metal Gear and Kojima information!

        I know, I paid for MGS-X.com through that random as fuck website lol, u using them for this too?

        • It’s a subsidiary of that site, so in a way, yes.

    • Vegas

      Since Nyx is too educated for that, I will say this myself: go jerk off a gorilla.

    Thanks Nyxus, I know keeping a server (even with a provider) costs money and a lot of effort. Besides that, all MGS info always comes right on time, sometimes I even think you’re an AI 😛 I wish I was here since the very beggining to suport this community because I really like the way this place is, but anyway I’d do anything in my power to keep our Heaven alive. Thanks again and keep up the good work 😀

    By the way, just as I clicked the title saying that the servers are faster, my phone crashed. Irony is a bitch.

    GW made me smile!

  • Plissken

    Where else am I going to get my daily news on Metal..Gear…?

  • Proud of you.

  • WhatTheJuicay

    So guys, I just thought of something.. Since Sony will be making a big push for Project Morpheus at this year’s E3.. It got me thinking.. What if Project Morpheus is supported by Kojima and MGSV? Imagine how crazy the hallucinations and the opening sequence would be. I think I might just get a PM just for MGSV.

    I’m really not going crazy for VR, but for this I’d be all in for it. Just like my interest in 3D has increased recently after finally seeing my first 3D film (Mad Max: Fury Road), as well as 3DTVs being far more affordable now–but barely any games that currently support it.. go figure.

    So anyone here for a MGSV x Project Morpheus?

  • Sly

    Lol that GW pic made me giggle

  • MAG V Supreme

    Nice work, we as a community are happy. stay blessed mgi.

  • WhatTheJuicay

    so… any plans to better integrate the forums into this blog? ie, forums.metalgearinformer.com? same layout, color scheme, etc. Only thing is i guess people will have to sign up to post. I actually forget theres a forum tab and never go there because its pretty much a whole different site.

    • Don’t think WordPress has forums. But you’re right, the forum is a separate thing as it is now.

  • nice! congrats nyxus

  • James

    Awesome! This site also used to never work on my cell phone, but now it does! Best MGS news site on the internet.

  • Ozzman

    • MichaelPayneV

      Which forums?

  • Miguel

    Great news! Someone have notice in idbm of the incorporation paz ortega?

    • MichaelPayneV

      That’s because the IMDB staff has forgot to delete Paz from MGSV once GZ and TPP were confirmed to be 2 separate Games!

      EDIT: All tough i do think that Paz will appear as a Hallucination for Big Boss!

  • Jim

    Oh, thank god. I can finally check this site from my phone. It wouldn’t load unless I was on wifi for tell last year or two. Shit was excruciating.
