Server Upgrades - only affects some NZ customers
Friday, 28th April, 2017
Starting at 7pm on Thursday 8th June we will be upgrading one of our older NZ servers; Venus. Work should be complete by 11pm.
During this time customers hosted on that server may notice some brief periods of downtime for both their web site and email although we will be working hard to keep this to a minimum.
We will be taking full backups before the upgrade to ensure your data is safe. However, we would advise against making changes to your web site during that time period as any changes made on the original server once we have started the migration may not make it across to the new server.
The new server is part of a rolling server renewal and will bring with it:
- improved performance
- improved security
- the option of changing PHP versions and other new feature
- more storage
We apologies in advance for any inconvenience.
