We will be upgrading the DFW server on Thursday 12/04 starting at 9PM CST and hope to have this completed by 5AM CST. We expect very little downtime, but there’s a chance once the transfer is complete and we move over the DNS and the IP address, there might be a small window when sites are not accessible. Any new post or e-commerce transactions between the start time and the finish time may not show up on the new server, so please plan accordingly.
DFW is our oldest server and while the sustained traffic is below its limits, the traffic spikes can push it over the edge. While we optimize to get the most out of the hardware, there comes a time when every server must be upgraded. The new server will have at least twice the processing power and five times the hard drive performance. Since the majority of our customers are on WordPress, these two improvements will drastically reduce load times.
We thank you for your patience in this matter and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Happy Holidays!
