We're on the move to a new web server!

Please stick with us as we move over

We are currently moving all data from our old servers over to a single new high-end web server located in Los Angeles with a different host.

At the moment our forums are down and we aren't adding any new content to the site. We have plenty of hot tech content lined up for you as soon as we're on the new site and the DNS is switched over.

It's going to be worth the wait. As TweakTown grows, we required a better solution for our hosting needs, and we think we've got a server that is going to last us for a good while and result in faster performance and less downtime. Our new host also offers stock performance tuning and security hardening, and we're excited to see the performance ourselves of this new investment once it goes online.

CPU: Dual Intel Xeon E5620 2.4GHz

RAM: 48GB DDR3 ECC Registered

Storage: 4 x 180GB Intel 520 SSDs in RAID 10 on Adaptec 6405 RAID controller

Software: LiteSpeed Web Server

LAN: 1Gbps

We'll post another update once we're live on the new server!
