The first keep update at d2mods.infoI august i posted an announcement stating that hugelaser is shutting down (check the topic here). The site and forums are now hosted by me (volf) and the downloads are hosted by Necrolis.
Being independent has brought up some new possibilities that were not easy to accomplish before due to lack of server access. As an example i have been monitoring the sites performance and tweaked to site for better speed along with allot of search engine optimisation changes, found unused and broken scripts that were adding to the loading times signifigantly. I have also been monitoring 404 errors (page not found) and fixed some pages that have been missing for a long time. As an example the staff page had disappeared completely so a new one was added here (you will also find a staff link to the left in the navigation under forums category.
Dead linksA side effect of the move has been a drop in pagerank and traffic as allot of incoming links are still pointing to phrozenkeep.hugelaser.com. We now ask webmasters and link partners to update any links to point to the new url. The format of all links is still the same, you only need to change replace phrozenkeep.hugelaser.com to d2mods.info or d2mods.com in links. If
you have made posts containing links to the phrozen keep on other forums you would be doing us a favor by editing the links to.
