Update 1:
 
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.
 
 
 
Dear Customers,

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 ImpactedVenus.dnsracks.com
 ( 65.60.4.234 )
Migration Start Date: February 18, 2021, 9:00 PM IST ( 3:30 PM GMT )
ETA for Completion: Migration would be completed in approx 24 - 48 hours
Service ImpactedVenus.dnsracks.com

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:
  • Latest generation Intel Processors with Dual Octa Core Compute
  • 128 GB ECC Ram
  • SuperFast Enterprise SSD Drives on RAID 10
  • High-Capacity Enterprise Storage Systems

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 65.60.4.234
ftp.yourdomain.com A 65.60.4.234
mail.yourdomain.com A 65.60.4.234

New DNS Records are:
yourdomain.com A 65.60.58.202
ftp.yourdomain.com A 65.60.58.202
mail.yourdomain.com A 65.60.58.202

That's it... beyond this, you don't have to do anything.

Communications Plan:

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.
 
 
Warm Regards,

Team WIPL
