The MyAutoEvents.com website will be unavailable for a couple hours the afternoon/evening of Friday January 18th, 2008 while the MyAutoEvents.com servers are relocated to a new facility.

There will be a "Down for maintenance" message displayed while this migration is being performed. The message will disappear and the site will return to full functionality when the movement of these servers is complete. I will also post a message to the forums when the maintenance is done. If you have an account on the MAE Support Forums you can click the "Watch this topic for replies" at the bottom of this thread to be notified by email when MyAutoEvents is back online.

Thanks for your patience!

Probably should have said something about a *reason* for the maintenance period in January... Rolling Eyes

MyAutoEvents has had some difficulties in the past with reliability of services. Some of this due to server size (addressed early 2007 with a refresh/upgrade of all MAE servers) and some due to capabilities of the hosting facility where the MyAutoEvents.com servers were located (power and network outages leading to service interruptions).

The goal at MyAutoEvents.com has always been to keep costs low so that event organizers can utilize the MAE services with a minimal impact to event finances. But when the service isn't 100% reliable, cost becomes less of a factor - and a low price (even free) doesn't seem like such a great deal.

In order to address the hosting capability problem, the entire MyAutoEvents.com server farm was relocated to a new co-location facility in January. The new location offers increased (huge) bandwith, state of the art multiple redundancies on power and network connectivity, and enhanced physical security measures.

Changes were made to the pricing model in May 2007 in anticipation of this move. MAE usage has grown to the point where the need is there and the additional cost of state of the art hosting is fully justifyable and with the pricing changes enacted in 2007 financially possible.

The goal remains to provide MAE users with the best VALUE in online event management and registration services with no excuses made for RELIABILITY.

If you encounter any problems accessing the MAE site, please let me know. support@myautoevents.com
