Dudeworld gets to live on a spunky new server !!
« on: September 06, 2013, 09:47:45 AM »
Just in from Hostgator :


Your account is being upgraded onto brand new, more powerful hardware which will include the latest versions of cPanel and CentOS.
We plan to facilitate this upgrade as quickly and seamlessly as possible. Ensuring your total satisfaction with this maintenance is our primary objective. We will keep you updated via e-mail throughout. The upgrade process itself will result in an exact copy of your account being moved to new hardware and will ensure that the freshest possible up to the minute data is retained.

Once your data switchover is complete we will begin diverting all traffic to your new server so that you do not miss any traffic or experience connectivity problems. Please be aware that there may be minimal amounts of downtime, however we will do everything within our power to ensure a smooth transition. Please note, if you are currently using custom name servers, this process may require a change of IP addresses.

We will contact you within 48-72 hours, once the upgrade process has started.

Cool, but if you haven't already, I would suggest grabbing a full backup.

I have been more than pleased with Hostgator. Besides my lending a hand here, I followed your lead and went with Hostgator for my own hosting and I've had zero complaints.

Still, best laid plans of mice and men leads to me suggesting a full backup.

Where everything out here ain't what it seems
When I'm down to nothing, I just go ahead and dream
And face the fact that I'm a circle in a world full of squares

Nice, a little overdue but nice, I think we are getting special attention though, technically we are in a  server cluster "cloud" but I did ask them ages back to keep us on same physical hardware.

I better make sure santa's little helpers get moved as well ;)

Cheers
