IMPORTANT: Downtime Notice for Full Server upgrade

  • Thursday, 17th September, 2020
  • 03:37am

As part of our commitment to provide the best possible infrastructure for your services, we have scheduled the following upgrade for the dime198 Linux shared hosting server. Please read the following details carefully:

Reason for maintenance:
We're always working to improve the performance and reliability of our services. As this server is currently running on legacy hardware, we've decided that an upgrade to our latest hardware and software configurations would be best to ensure that we're providing the highest quality of service moving forward.

Our team is going to be taking your server offline in order to prevent any updates to websites during that time from being lost once the upgrade is complete. We will be backing up all server data, migrating it to the new server, and finally restoring the data. This full upgrade should improve performance and reliability for you and your clients across the board.

Maintenance Window:
START: Friday, September 25th, 2020 @ 10:00 PM EDT
END: Saturday, September 26th, 2020 @ 8:00 AM EDT

Estimated Downtime:
We understand the importance of uptime for you and your clients and will be working as quickly as possible to complete this process. Accounts will be put into maintenance mode for the duration of the migration (up to 24 hours) in order to ensure the integrity of all account data. We advise that you do not attempt to make any changes to your website until after the full maintenance window has ended as we cannot guarantee such changes will transfer. In addition, we highly encourage clients to backup any integral data prior to the migration and to thoroughly check and verify all sites and configurations post-migration.

Although we do not expect downtime to last the entire duration of the maintenance window, we would advise you to prepare for 6-10 hours of potential intermittent service interruptions during the restore just in case. It is also important to read the notes below in order to prepare your account for this upgrade.

After this update our DNS and Server ip will change. However, the name servers will remain the same.

Server IP [Main IP:]
DNS#1: []
DNS#2: []


Update - September 25th, 2020 @ 10:00 PM EDT 


Currently, the migration is still occurring as the maintenance window is from Friday, September 25th, 2020 @ 10:00 PM EDT - Saturday, September 26th, 2020 @ 8:00 AM EDT.
It is currently 3:05AM EDT and thus any discrepancies are likely due to the migration still occurring and details have not been updated as of yet.
