For those on server IP ending in 147
The back end of the migration will be completed on Monday December 18th, 2023 starting at 9AM SLT. This includes the DNS A records for the IP address for all domains including the control panel domain. The DNS change worldwide may take up to 24 to 48 hours. During DNS update, the browser may connect to the old server which will result invalid password so bear with us while the changes update. For future reference the new IP address is 188.8.131.52 and the control panel URL will remain the same, just changing the IP address as it is with a different datacenter.
Those on Server IP ending in 242
The migration process will begin on Monday, same time as well. This may take up to 2 days, it just depends. They were able to do the other server in about 15 hours but have a backup just in case. The back end of this will be done as soon as the migration is completed so you may get the same issues as described above. Please be patient and bear with me through this process. The datacenter & I are working to have the least amount of downtime possible. I will send an update again once everything has been completed. Also for future reference, your IP will be 184.108.40.206
Also note I am sending out this notification to each customer via a notification system inworld. I will also be taking the time to send this to each customer directly as well. Just trying to notify everyone the best I can. This is why we have a website so if you IMs get capped, you can still access important information such as this. That site is: https://news.hostcrate.stream/
I also want to side note that I *didn’t* want to move/migrate. I was forced to by the datacenter we had been with for just shy of a decade! 10 years of loyalty. You can read that ticket interaction on this post for full details. I just wanted to make that crystal clear as I did receive a not so friendly IM complaining about my moving and raising pricing. If I would of ordered servers with the current datacenter, the price increase would of been a lot more as they are expensive. But I didn’t want to do that so I looked for another & receive word from someone who knows their stuff. Their pricing is reasonable and I didn’t have to raise it that much. I also moved my office to lessen the cost of operations which lessen the price I would have to increase it by. If you have an issue with this and decided to leave Hostcrate, I’m sorry and I do hope that you find a provider that is better suited for you. We wll be here if ever you decide to come back.
That is all, for now. If you have any questions, etc, please reach out. Thank you again!!!!!!
