Server is now Live
We have decided to move away to a new provider, to a much better server. The server will come with more storage and will be SSD instead of HDD and will have 64 GB of RAM (current server is 16 GB) and faster gigabit connectivity (current server is 100Mbs) and much higher bandwidth cap as well, so sites performance should be much better and also allow us to provide more storage and bandwidth per site/account.
We are switching to new server tonight at 10 : 00 AM ET.
Migration has started - New server go live date is Dec. 6th 2020
Email and Control panel configurations have changed please have a read at these instructions. Thanks
Login details to new control panel.
Please test your sites fully have 7 days before older drive is wiped
New control panel
PHP will be upgraded
PHP 5.3 upgraded to PHP 5.6
Update: This issue has now been resolved, if having any concerns still please contact us right away. Some users were impacted by the attempt by our provider to port over some of the emails from May 14th to May 17th time frame from old server to the new one, and they made an error and it doubled the disk space usage for some accounts. Their team is working on this issue and come up with a plan of action, but in the meanwhile I have gone ahead and increased the disk space for the accounts impacted. Please note we will be bumping all the accounts disk space and bandwidth limits in the next month. It is unfortunate that this occurred and some clients had not mail availability for almost a day or two. Please report and submit a ticket right away if there are still some ongoing pending issues, while we work with our provider to fix this error. Once again sorry for the inconvenience this has caused some of our clients.
We have taken the liberty of upgrading our billing system to the latest version, please notify us via email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having any issues logging in here to submit tickets or any other billing issues after this upgrade. Thanks
Hi, Server migration to better hardware is now complete, please check your sites and report right away any concerns so we can troubleshoot and fix asap, it is difficult for us to go over all the websites so we are looking for support from each website owner to report any concerns with their sites. Thanks
Quick update, we are migrating data over tonight to the new server so please do not panic if you notice your sites being offline from 9 PM CDT to 11 PM CDT. We expect it to go smoothly and rather quickly as well.
Server is being upgraded and additional storage, ram and cpu will give us the opportunity to increase the existing and new clients storage and bandwidth limits to double or triple depending on the plans we currently have. Upgrade will happen prior to this weekend (if not prior will take place on the weekend) so please do not worry if you notice your site being offline. However, we strongly urge everyone to make complete backups of their sites and keep a copy with them, we are hoping for minimum downtime and no data loss. So, please make sure you have backups of your sites.
Today, December 28 after 10 PM CST expect server downtime, we are doing required maintenance on server. Expected downtime could be 1 to 2 hrs.
Billing system upgraded
Some of your might be using IMAP and Outlook and are being greeted with the message about the server certificate : “Target Principal Name is Incorrect”. There is a fix for that.
We have successfully restored older copy of certain tables because developers were not sure which tables were corrupt. The copy if from July 2, 2011. We have however imported recent invoices,tickets and announcements and notes tables so your accounts should not be impacted. However please let us know if something is either missing or wrong with your account setup or payment setup. Sorry for the inconvenience this might have caused. Regards Sumeet
We have weird bug pop into our billing system so we will be rolling back the system to a state when it worked and products showed up for clients. We will be doing parallel install of the system and try to merge database but we are not sure if we will have any success. So those clients that signed up with us within the last 2- 3 months might be affected. So if you see error messages in billing system or it being down please bear with us. We are hoping things will go smooth. Regards
The billing system is having some issues displaying the products that you currently have with us. The invoicing and ordering system is working but in your profile you will not be able to see your products. We are getting support from company responsible for the script and will update if situation changes. If there are un-paid invoices please proceed to pay them else system will suspend your account, we believe the service responsible for un-suspending your account after late invoices have been paid is offline so if you have made the payment for late invoice and your site is suspended please open a ticket. Regards Sumeet
Recently we have upgraded the billing/support section to latest release, it comes with several cosmetic changes and features. Please contact us ASAP if you have any Questions/Concerns etc. Regards Sumeet
Server scanned and several sites found to be infected and need attention asap. Those impacted need to change their passwords and ensure strong passwords are used, to prevent further hacking of their websites. If no action is taken you might see your sites offline/hacked etc..
For those wondering about higher than usual server loads recently, we are aware of the same and are trying to resolve the issue with the client responsible for the spikes.
Billing Section Updated
Server rebooted due to urgent kernel updates. Sorry about the scare and inconvenience caused due to abrupt reboot.
We have enabled auto re-activation of suspended accounts due to failed payment on time. This impacts those clients that fail to make payment in time and have suspended accounts.
