Network Scheduled maintenance (Resolved)
  • Priority - Critical
  • Affecting System - Network
  • On the 24th of May at 10am London time, we are having a scheduled maintenance on all our network.

    This will take approximately 2 hours but we will struggle to reduce the time to a minimum.

    We picked up this date and time due to a very low traffic on all the network thus reducing to a minimum the loss of traffic (less the 0,02% loss).

    We are sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause

    If you have any questions please contact us and we will answer as soon as possible, or you can open a ticket from your account.

Schedule downtime (Resolved)
  • Priority - Critical
  • Affecting Server - Orion
  • We are migrating to the new IP class received from our ISP

    This means that you can experience some problems accessing your website(s).
    Altho this may seem a serious problem we can assure you that it isin`t. It`s the final step in starting our own data centre and this means no more problems for you as a client hosted on our servers.

    Usually the change can tale up to 24 hours but for security reasons we reserve 72 hours for this change as it is needed for the Name Servers propagation on the internet and since is a big net it can take a while.

    You won`t have to do anything, just sit tight, relax and enjoy your weekend and we will do all the work for you.

    Also with this change we can sell cheap IPV4 IP addresses to use for SSL connections on your websites.
    We are going to add this addon once the change has been made.

    We hope you can still take it and we apologies for any inconvenience you may experience during this change and we will do our best to make it a short transition.

Schedule downtime (Resolved)
  • Priority - Low
  • Affecting Server - Orion
  • Schedule shut down on servers.

    We are replacing the network cards with 1GB cards for more speed and reliability.

    We are currently in progress of installing a fiber link with our provider for 1GB uplink and we need to replace the old network cards so that the server can support the new speed.

    Start date and time: 06/12/2012 00:30
    End date and time: 06/12/2012 04:00:00

    The time is relative the replacement can take place at any time between this hours and it should be a 15 minutes downtime.
