    LOCKED - Migration Instructions/How To's/Why Leaving Yuku?

    Why are we leaving Yuku?

    One reason is cost. Yuku now costs about $3700/year. The hosting fees with this company are significantly less. Yuku's price is based upon page views. Hosting company will stay pretty much the same so if the site grows - the site cost stays the same unlike Yuku. And Yuku hasn't increased their price in a few years and they are hurting for $$$.

    Also, I am not sure how much longer Yuku will be in business. They have been sold about 4 times over the past 5 years and they lost their biggest board in July which accounted for 15% of their traffic. Plus - they never optimized a mobile view and I just got tired of waiting on them.
