As part of our continued commitment to quality of service and uptime, this host must be replaced with more modern hardware and software combinations. We have determined that the least disruptive method to handle this is to treat it in the same fashion as a foreign server migration.
As such IP addressing of sites will change: –
If your domain is registered through Othello – there is no further action necessary.
If your domain is not registered through Othello but uses our nameservers – there is no further action necessary.
If your domain is not registered through Othello and uses third party DNS services – You will need to update your provider with the new IP Address – 188.8.131.52.
What: Replacement of hardware/migration of customer data.
When: Thursday 12 April 2012 – Overnight
Who: All customers currently with services on cpanel4.othellohosts.net
Outage Expected: None; although users with forums or blogs should attempt to prevent updates during this time as depending on exact timing updates may not be migrated. Placing forums and shopping carts into maintenance mode would be ideal.
We do not expect any downtime for customers; however any custom set-ups, with nameserver FQDNs especially, that were not ordered and supplied specifically through Othello will most likely result in problems. Please contact support via the normal channels if you experience any difficulties.
