As many of you will already be aware we are currently in the process of moving our equipment from the data centre facility we currently use to a different one (whilst also expanding our hosting network to cover two other facilities). As part of this we obviously have to physically move servers.
Around half the notices to dedicated server customers have already been sent, starting with those who will be moved first.
In terms of our virtual/shared hosting we will be moving servers on the weekends of 1st/2nd April and 8th/9th April. To find out when the server your site is on will be moved, please use the following tool: Server Move Date Checker. All server moves will take place starting at 23:00 on the day given by the tool and will carry on until 06:00 the following day. We expect downtime to be between 1 and 2 hours maximum.
We thank you for your patience and understanding during these moves.
We’ve had a couple of people ask if anything will be changing with regards to the servers/settings/software etc. Nothing will be changing on this front, we are moving the physical servers as they are between facilities – all software, settings, IP addresses etc. will remain the same.
