Update: Our server move is complete! Everything looks great on our new hardware, with all bugs squashed and our average response time holding at a blazingly fast 40ms =)
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
We have been notified by our hosting provider (SoftLayer) that the pod our servers are located on needs upgrades, and we are being required to move our servers.
We have been working on this for the past few weeks to ensure a smooth transition and plan to initiate the move on Friday July 6th. Due to the size of Shivtr's database, we expect the transfer to take about 8 hours to complete.
If your site uses a Shivtr subdomain, such as *.shivtr.com or *.wowhordes.com, you won't need to do anything. Once the move is complete your site will simply be running on our new, shiny hardware!
However, if your site uses a custom domain name, you will need to update its IP address to point to our new server. When we begin the transfer, the old server will display a maintenance message, with a note showing our new ip address and help on how to update your domain name.
If you have any questions on this feel free to ask below, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Hope you are having a great summer of gaming! =)
