- Priority - Critical
- Affecting Server - Alpha
In order to improve our service, we are upgrading our shared hosting infrastructure to cloud hosting infrastructure on 28/08/2021 at 23:00 BST and we expect this process to run through till 31/08/2021 until 23:59 BST.
This upgrade will increase the reliability of our shared hosting service and will remove the risk of downtime in the case of hardware faults on a single physical machine. The only change in respect to software versions will be the upgrade from MariaDB 10.3.30 to MySQL v8.0 for additional SQL improvements, all other software versions and configurations will remain the same.
If you are utilising dedicated IPs, these will be reissued after the upgrade has been completed. If you are pointing domains by the name server, no change is required to DNS. If you are pointing to an A record, then the IP will need to be updated accordingly after the upgrade has been completed. The new shared server IP will be confirmed shortly.
Thank you for your understanding.
