    I'm changing registrars and with it, the DNS settings will be updating. While I don't anticipate any down time with this, there's always a chance an old cache hasn't been flushed out. If you're having an issue over the next few days connecting, try doing hard refreshes (ctrl +f5) and maybe even re-set your modem/router to pick up new entries. or, just wait :)

    Always flush your cache.

    It's not the registrar's fault... it's all the nodes all over the world that cache entries. It has to be done. it it checked a master list every time, the internet would slow to a crawl

    These moves completed overnight. If you've noticed any difference in response times, please let me know.
    This was a preemptive move before I stop self-hosting DNS and push it to cloudflare.
