As a direct result of the downtime we experienced across the board a week back, our host has decided to migrate its datacenter.
This will result in a breif outage. Please MAKE SURE ALL HOSTS FILE MODIFICATIONS have been removed, this will directly prevent you from using the site if you keep them. They are no longer needed.
Also, we are now housing all of our EU nodes within the same datacenter/rack as our current Quad Core EU2 node, this was decided after multiple extensive testing on the network, and we found it to be an amazingly fast and stable network, so we are now growing our EU base from this 1 location.
As with all migrations, there will be a short downtime and you will have fresh IP addresses assigned to your VPS, which means that you will need to modify any nameservers or domains you have configured on the old IP addresses.
Again, please do not think of the worst, we are planning this migration very carefull to ensure the least downtime as possible, we will also be crediting all EU1 customers with an extra 128mb memory and an extra 10gb space at no extra cost once the migration has been completed.
The migrations will be taking place between the 5th and 8th of August (this week), all VPS will stay online until it is their turn to be migrated.
There should be minimal downtime as DNS will stay active on the old server until the 25th, so you have until then to transfer your DNS to the new server, meaning that there should be no downtime due to DNS, as you have more than enough time to get your DNS transferred to the new server/ip addresses.
iunno. it seems awful sketchy to me that a host's data center consists of one freakin' rack. I don't argue that it's unusual cuz wtf do I know? but man, I always thought a host would at least have their own freestanding server, and they'd be the one's leasing racks to individuals and companies.
