Over the next month, we will be migrating the following servers for our Linux customers to newly provisioned hardware:

web servers - web6 and web7-us mixed in among 2 new web servers
database servers - mysql3 mysql2-5
mail servers - mail1 and mail2
nameservers: ns1, ns2, ns3

We will also be moving Linux VPS servers and will be creating support tickets for each customer . 

Customers using third party DNS servers will be contacted to make sure their IPs are updated.

All work done will be handled by us and the migration should be seamless for the most part and there is nothing on your side to do. 

This migration starts other project offerings for us including a new anti-spam system to replace spamexperts as well as provide outgoing filtering to prevent spam from being sent from our servers and potentially causing them to be blacklisted.

10/6/2014: Mail1, ns2, ns3, and cp have been moved successfully.  

10/6/2014 (night): ns1 has been migrated.

10/16/2014:  accounts on web7-us have been migrated.

MySQL configuration for scripts will be updated during the migration process. 

Customers using external DNS services will be contacted to ensure they update DNS records.  Customers using our nameservers do not need to take action on DNS records.

If you have questions regarding this or would like to start your move process before we do, please let us know.

All accounts on web7-us have been migrated and are either in a finished state or will be completed tonight.

We will be focusing on our attention on accounts that are using mysql3 and web6.

We will be doing a migration on ns3 as well as our site and support (ticket) system tomorrow night (9/26/2014).  This will result in ns3's IP being changed.  As such, resellers will need to update the IP for ns3 to the one that will be provided after the migration is done.  The old IP will work for a couple weeks.

During this time, we will also migrate our site and internal items.  This may cause support / client support systems to be offline for a short amount of time.

This work is currently progressing.

This work is complete.  Resellers please update IP at registrar for ns3 to .
