Upcoming server move of Server 4

As announced in a previous blog post, Server 4 will be moved to a new server. The server company is migrating to a new datacenter and the servers in the old datacenter were not possible to be kept unfortunately.

It's going to happen a bit sooner than I expected though, I might get the new server next week already and the move may happen next week already.

As mentioned already, this move is only for the accounts on Server 4, you can check on which server you are hosted on your Account page (link on top).

For the people on Server 4, most likely you won't have to do anything at all. During the move your website should continue to work, only some changes that were made during the server move (like a forum post) might not be reflected on the new server. The move itself should not take very long, though.

Only the people with a domain name that was pointed directly to our ip address (and not to the nameservers) will need to change that to the new ip after the move happened.

I just got the server. I'm going to check it out and maybe start the move today or tomorrow.

The server configuration is mostly finished. The server seems to be doing pretty fine.

I'll move the website in a few hours or tomorrow morning.

I'll move the websites tomorrow morning. I don't think there is enough time left this evening.

The move is pretty much finished. It went faster than I expected. The accounts are transferred and should already be working on the new server.

New server: .

I'll post a new blog post with more information about the move after some testing.
