Server Migration: Squall transfer to Tidus
Start Date: 09-30-2018 – 23:59 (EST -5)
End Date 10-01-2018 – 04:30 (EST -5)
Server Transfer is 100% complete...
(DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING WHILE SERVER TRANSFER IS IN PROGRESS)
After several considerations, and trying our best to resolve this severe issue regarding Squall (https://portal.bladenode.com/announcements/7/server-performance-issues--Squall.html), we have decided to move vendors and completely move squall to one of our in-house nodes. In the past few weeks, we have been installing new servers that are fully managed by us, and not the vendors. As BladeNode is a server hosting company that provides VPS hosting, we have created custom dedicated servers that are designed to handle the most demanding projects. That being said, our staff believes we have provided a solution that will resolve these issues. We know that everyone has already been moved several times, but this should be our last move. No doubt this can be frustrating with all these changes, but in the end, we are sure this will be for the best.
To resolve these issues as fast as possible, we have decided to start the transfer on 09-30-2018 – 00:00 (EST -5) and will end on 09-30-2018 – 04:30 (EST -5). For the majority of our clients, it will not be necessary to do anything, as we will handle everything for you. All you might have to do is to make sure all the domains that are hosted by us must be pointed to our nameservers below:
If you use Cloudflare or custom DNS hosting, then please point your domains A record to 22.214.171.124. We expect there will be 0 downtimes, as we will leave the old server running to make sure everyone's accounts are transferred safely. If you have any feedback or concerns regarding this issue, then please submit a ticket via our brand new portal system (Will post a separate update about it in the near future) that is located at https://portal.bladenode.com/
We are truly sorry for any inconvenience this has caused or may cause. Every client who uses our shared hosting will be given credit for the performance issues and any downtime that may occur during the move. We appreciate your understanding in this matter and thank you for choosing BladeNode Web Hosting.
