We’re finally back after being knocked offline for a day.
I knew this was coming. I have been watching our traffic steadily climb for the past six months now. It really started picking up momentum in late September. We have recovered from Charlottesville and have been on track this month to exceed our previous record high which was set in August 2017 when we were at the center of a media firestorm.
Occidental Dissent was taken offline because we had outgrown our old hosting plan. It is a good problem to have to deal with and a nice change of place from 2017 when the Alt-Right collapsed and 2018 when we were getting dragged into a civil lawsuit (still pending) from Charlottesville. We are trying to grow and become a bigger and more influential platform.
I’ve had to upgrade our hosting plan and migrate the site to a virtual private server to accommodate the surge in new traffic. The catch is that our hosting bill is now $60 more per month – 3x more than what it had been previously – and there might still be some bugs left to iron out from the transfer. If you can, please send us a few shekels to the P.O. Box to help offset the cost of the new server for we can go ahead and pay off the host for the year ahead. It will also be fun to celebrate this victory of “extremism” over our enemies like the ADL.
