Server 4 to be moved to a new server next month

I got notified that the server company is removing all the servers from the datacenter of Server 4, which means that somewhere next month all the accounts on Server 4 will need to be transferred to a new server (the new Server 4).

The move will probably happen in a bit less than a month. I'm searching for a good server and either order that one or take the similar server that the current server company is offering me in their new datacenter. I will update in some time when I have more news on what I decided.

In any case, there shouldn't be much problems for the people on Server 4, mostly just work for me. If everything goes according to plan, the websites should not go down, only during the actual move the changes (during a few hours depending on how long it takes) on the old server won't be reflected on the new server. Only the people who pointed their domains to our ip will need to change it, normally you either have our subdomain or you pointed your domain(s) to our nameservers and that should continue to work without any changes on your part. But that's for in a few weeks.

Thanks for the heads up, Bondings. Good luck with a smooth transfer.

I'm probably going to take the server from the same company in their new datacenter. It's a bit better server than the current one.

Hi Steve,

Is there anything going wrong with server 4 ?
I can't access my sites since a 30 min .. Neither can I access my admin page.
I hope it's just for a short time ... rather annoying when your in the midst of configuring a Joomla site.

hope that it resolves quickly

Seems that server4 is again online ...sorry for the silly post.
Back-up back-ups back-ups ...why do we only remember to make them if something goes wrong (in stead before) ...

how do i know which server i am on again? I'm hosted at, is that server 4? because I can't access it for a while now. Though 2 hours ago I can access it.
