We are planning to transfer the remaining part of the accounts hosted on Shared server 159 to our brand new state-of-the-art server – Shared server 153. The new server will provide the power and reliability we strive to deliver for years to come.
The transfer is going to be performed on Saturday, March 25th, at 05:00 PM EST | 21:00 UTC. We aim to keep downtime to a minimum and will be performing the transfer outside of business hours to minimize disruption.
We would like to ask you to check the name servers of your domain names and make sure they are set to dns1/dns2.namecheaphosting.com:
– If hosted domains are pointed to this set of nameservers, we will automatically update their DNS zones. No actions are required from you in this case.
– If hosted domains are pointed to the old hosting nameservers which differ from our cluster ones, please re-point your domains to the following nameservers as soon as possible:
dns1.namecheaphosting.com and dns2.namecheaphosting.com
When the transfer starts, we will be constantly updating you via this blog post, which is why we highly advise you to bookmark this page.
We greatly appreciate your patience and understanding.
