Bid-Ninja Back Up and Running

We apologize for the temporary inconvenience if you were having trouble using Bid-Ninja during our small outage period.  If you’re still experiencing trouble using/loading Bid-Ninja, please clear your browsers cache, close out your browser and reopen it and you’ll see everything is working normally now.

We had a temporary outage of service due to our Amazon server going down and us having to point our nameservers to a newly started Amazon Cloud instance.

Bid-Ninja is Experiencing a Temporary Outage/Downtime

We sincerely apologize for the unexpected Bid-Ninja outage. We ourselves did not anticipate having any downtime at all. We are experiencing a minor issue with our Amazon Cloud hosting in our region.

We had to start a new “instance” on our Amazon servers and point our domains nameservers at it, which can take some hours to update/propagate worldwide.

We’ll be back up and running here very shortly and we’ll also post updates on our blog here: http://bid-ninja.com/blog/

Sincerely,

The Bid-Ninja Team

Bid-Ninja is Blindingly Fast Now that the Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade Has Been Completed

Bid-Ninja Has Completed the Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade…and Bid-Ninja is Now Faster & Better Than it Has Ever Been in the History of It’s Existence! 

As you probably already know, Bid-Ninja had a scheduled maintenance upgrade performed on December 6th. It took us longer to complete than we wanted it to (wasn’t finished until 3:00am on December 7th) which we apologize for, but once we started it we couldn’t simply stop in the middle. So, again, we do sincerely apologize for the extended outage, however it was well worth it. Bid-Ninja is now faster and more efficient than it has ever been.

We have created a short video to PROVE to you how mind blowingly fast Bid-Ninja is now (in case you want to see proof before you log into Bid-Ninja)! Click the play button below to see for yourself:

 

Bid-Ninja is Having a Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade – Anticipate Downtime – Details Within

Bid-Ninja is Will Have a Scheduled Maintenance on 12/06/2013 – Anticipate Not Having Access to Bid-Ninja from 8:00am EST to 2:00pm EST

This Scheduled Maintenance Upgrade Will Bring Improve the Speed & Efficiency of Bid-Ninja to a Level NEVER Seen Before – Bid-Ninja Will be Faster Than Ever Before!

With the recent release of all of the Bid-Ninja Locked Auction Features, we’ve grown by leaps and bounds in a very short period of time. The ability to win more auctions using Bid-Ninja with these new features has grown tenfold…in short, it’s tremendously powerful and our users have experienced this personally…so of course word has spread like wildfire.

So not only are more of our users using our software more often, but we’ve also put on more new users than ever before, resulting in literally more users using our software (and winning more auctions) at the same time than at any point in the history of Bid-Ninja. That, in combination with the Holiday shopping season, has pushed our servers to the max.

As always, we want to make sure our loyal Bid-Ninja’s have the best user experience possible. So what we’re doing is upgrading our servers and our database language to bring more speed and efficiency to you.

We know this is inconvenient, but it’s a small price to pay for the incredible speed that will come in exchange for a few hours of downtime. Please anticipate not being able to use Bid-Ninja from 8:00am EST to 2:00pm EST on December 6th, 2013.
