iLounge upgrades servers, more coming

In order to keep up with - and hopefully outpace - dramatic increases in iLounge’s traffic, we have upgraded our servers for the second time in six months. This upgrade moves iLounge onto an even more powerful array of machines more capable of handling the over two million readers we now have in a single month, and will hopefully result in faster, better connections to iLounge for all of our readers.

Substantial additional changes - entirely positive ones - are planned for the next two months. As always, we are working on major improvements to increase speed and other features of the site, and will not pass any associated costs on to our readers. Despite rising costs of hosting, maintenance and design, we remain committed to keeping iLounge entirely free of charge.

We hope you enjoy the faster iLounge servers.

I love the website, but for me it still takes a long time (1 minute or more) to load a page.

iPodlounge is absolutely the absolute best accessory there is for iPod owners—and potential iPod owners—anywhere

And it’s certainly the best bargain. Thanks for helping me learn to get the most from my Pod. Keep it up!
