We have just received notice from renren.com that the server we are hosting our app on, godaddy.com, is too slow. This is because godaddy.com is hosted over here in the US, and a worry is that when we gather traction, users will experience severe lags which are undesirable.
The team sees this as a problem as well and are currently moving quickly to solve the problem. We have just purchased a server space over in a datacenter at Hong Kong. This may set-back our user-development by a few days, but we recognize this as a necessary action. We will continue to do testing with our test-group over here in Stanford in these few days while we shift our server over to Hong Kong.
