Migration Information L2.ADNSHOST.COM - WHM / CPANEL

19 Feb 2017

** Any customer being migrated will receive multiple advance notices via e-mail before the migration begins. If you have any questions or concerns about the migration, please contact our support team. ***

In the next few days we will begin migrating some of our customers on older hardware over to brand new machines. The new servers will offer better performance and stability along with an operating system upgrade.

We are migrating all websites using a combination of the cPanel restoration tools. When a site is migrated, we first gather all of the necessary account information and settings and transfer those over to the new server. Once the account is configured we then begin transferring the bulk of the account data — your website files (home directory), e-mail data, and your MySQL databases. This process can take anywhere from a few seconds to several hours depending on the total disk usage on your account.

Once your migration is complete, as explained above, you will receive an e-mail with your new IP address and server name. If you are connecting directly to the IP address or hostname (e-mail, ftp, etc.) it is very important that you immediately update those settings in your e-mail or FTP client to the new IP or hostname. This will ensure that you are connecting to the new server instead of the old one.

Once your migration is complete, the name servers will need to be updated in order to point to the new server. Some of our customers choose to use third party name servers, which is fine, but it means that we will not have access to make the necessary DNS changes automatically. Instead, when the migration is complete and you receive the e-mail with your new IP address, you would need to manually modify your DNS zone at your DNS provider. If you need help making this change, your DNS provider should be able to make the change for you or assist you further. Site5 admins are also available to help you in any way possible.

We are going to be moving sites to the new server during our maintenance period on 20/2/2017, and ending on 24/8/2016. We hope to have all sites moved to the new server during this time period. In most situations, you shouldn't even notice an interruption of service.

We apologize for any inconvenience. We hope you understand that such maintenances are necessary to help AWDHPL continue to provide optimal performance and best service for you.
