Moving day

This notice is being emailed as well as posted to the Announcements blog, to make sure everyone receives this information. If you don't already subscribe to the announcements blog, please do so through FeedBurner.

We're in the process of backing up all accounts to an offsite/remote backup server, and have begun transferring accounts to the new server. When the move is complete a notice will be posted here, but if you'd like to be ahead of the curve, the new IP will be: All account usernames and passwords will remain the same.

This move is being done ASAP rather than in stages, as I've been receiving warnings that the temperature on the current server is running high. Clearly, something is wrong, and I'd like to complete the move before the server goes down again.

DNS is being changed and the new nameservers are being *added*, with the old/current nameservers still listed so as to allow for some "cross-over" time. If this is all Greek to you, then we handle your DNS and you don't need to do anything, we will make the changes for you. If you handle your own DNS, please add the following nameservers: ( (

For domains ending in .org : ( (

Again, if you don't understand what that means about nameservers, don't worry about it, the nameserver information only applies if you handle your own DNS (and if you do, you'd know).

If you could please hold off uploading large files until after the transfer is complete, that would be helpful. The "all clear" will be posted when this process is done. Thank you for your patience.
