Our datacenter has notified us that they are going to migrate our racks to their new datacenter in Dallas between 4th January 2016 and 16th January 2016.
We do not have an exact date for this migration to happen at this time. Once we know more, we will promptly update you.
We will make sure to have things migrated as quickly as possible without complications. There would be an at most 1 hour downtime because of this migration. The migration will most likely be done at US Central night time.
The new datacenter is only a few miles away and in the same city. One of our admins will be on site during the migration to keep an eye on things. So we expect things will go smoothly.
Please note that there won't be an IP change. You'll just notice a downtime while we take the servers down and move them physically to the new racks in the new datacenter.
With this migration, we are expecting to grow faster as a result of bigger footprint and better connectivity with private peering with providers such as Cloudflare, Akamai, Google, AWS, Facebook, Netflix, etc.
Please prepare your applications for this downtime and make sure to backup your important data before the migration just in case.
