The migration has completed and all sites are migrated on the new servers.
In case you are experiencing any issues, please open a ticket to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team will be happy to assist.
The Migration has been initiated as per the schedule.
We request you to update the DNS records now for any domains using the 3rd party nameservers.
As the current batch of servers are reaching their EOL, we would be upgrading the servers where your reseller account is hosted to heavy-duty servers with Intel Dual Octacore Processors & Superfast SSD Drives.
The migration details for the servers are given below:
Servers Impacted: Venus.dnsracks.com ( 220.127.116.11 )
Migration Start Date: February 18, 2021, 9:00 PM IST ( 3:30 PM GMT )

Why the need for Migration?: As a part of our quality assurance policy, we regularly upgrade our infrastructure to meet the Industry standards & to protect the servers from any possible signs of crashes/downtimes.
Migration Description: During this time, we will be migrating the old servers to a new & powerful server with the following configuration:
What we expect from you: If you are using our DNS/Name Servers then you don't have to worry about anything. If however you are using your own custom name servers then please follow the instructions given below carefully:
1) You'll have to renumber the IP address of website, FTP and mail DNS records associated with the domain you are running as custom name servers.
Old DNS Records are ( Venus server ):
yourdomain.com A 18.104.22.168
ftp.yourdomain.com A 22.214.171.124
mail.yourdomain.com A 126.96.36.199
New DNS Records are:
yourdomain.com A 188.8.131.52
ftp.yourdomain.com A 184.108.40.206
mail.yourdomain.com A 220.127.116.11
That's it... beyond this, you don't have to do anything.
Our helpdesk will be fully functional and staffed during the migrations. We will also be posting periodic updates in the announcements section to keep you fully informed of the status of all migrations. Please do not use our emergency contact numbers during the migration, as this will just slow our work.
We appreciate your business and will do everything in our power to minimize downtime while safely and securely moving servers.
