We’ve been tired of our old web host for a very very long time. We always planned on moving to a new host or getting our own private dedicated server, but it was never really a reasonable option for us since we really haven’t had a lot of time or reason to focus on our website or even our web presence. It’s something I wish we could create more content for, but right now, it doesn’t really make a lot of sense.
However, it has been in my interest for a long time to start a web design company since that’s what I spend the majority of my time doing anyway. It’s what finances everything we do right now and what’s taking a lot of my focus and subsequently the focus and direction of Terrabang. So, finally the time is right to set off and create this web company with a trusted partner.
Behold, SpaceApe Design. It’s going to take a little while for our new venture to stretch its legs and get set-up, but the immediate advantage to all of our other networks (Antithesis Comedy, etc) is that we are all now on SpaceApe’s dedicated server.
What does this mean for you? Well, pretty much everything is going to remain the same, except it’s going to be a lot faster and more responsive. It’s also finally giving us the platform we need to really develop The Backlot and expand its features in the ways we want.
It’s also given way to inexpensively run a whole network of websites whenever and however we want. In fact, ReelGood Productions, the company that’s replacing Terrabang’s original commercial goals is already going up. That’s another venture that I have to tend to and would like to focus a lot of my energy on.
My intention is to find someone to take Terrabang and run with it. I’m definitely not abandoning it, but I need someone to take over guiding it and organizing it. I’d like to shift its focus back on creating a community…and who knows, maybe The Backlot will completely replace it someday. What am I ever going to do with all of these business cards?
I’ll be back with more updates soon. Cheers.
