  • MX01 Maintenance

    No comments April 24th, 2015 11 View(s)

    Within the next 15 minutes will be migrating our MX01 mail server into our cloud infrastructure. This process will take about 90 minutes to complete (possibly less). During this time you will not be able to send or receive email. Our backup mail servers will catch any incoming mail from 3rd party mail servers and deliver these emails once MX01 comes back online.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding during this time!

  • PayPal Subscriptions Canceled

    No comments April 23rd, 2015 7 View(s)

    Clients who have a PayPal subscription with us have most likely received a notification that it was canceled. We’ve canceled all PayPal subscriptions due to pricing changes, knowing this would cause issues with incomplete payments. If you use PayPal subscriptions, you will need to create a new subscription when your next renewal invoice is generated. Simply login before the due date of the invoice and select “PayPal Subscription” icon as the payment option.

    If you have any questions please contact our billing department.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

  • MSSQL01 Cloud Migration / Maintenance

    4 comments April 22nd, 2015 31 View(s)

    We will be starting the migration of our MSSQL01 SQL Server to our new Server 2012 R2-based cloud platform later this evening. We expect this to take up to 2-hours to complete. During this time the database services will be unavailable.

    This migration will not affect any data or cause any issues. The hostname for the US MSSQL01 server will remain the same and you will not need to update any scripts or external services.

    Once completed, customers should notice the immediate increase in performance over the previous system. Our new system has a very large amount of dedicated processors and RAM to SQL server and will easily handle our current load!

    If you have any questions or concerns please contact our support department!

    We’ve restarted our main R4 router to improve performance of our BGP routing as well as finalize an upgrade of the core OS. We expect this to take 5 – 10 minutes. During this time our US network will be offline while the router restarts and regains its routing information.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding!

  • Service Price Changes & Gateway Fee Adjustments

    6 comments April 20th, 2015 601 View(s)

    Effective immediately we are removing the Gateway fee from all shared hosting services, reseller services, email hosting and TeamSpeak services. We’ve also adjusted the pricing for our shared hosting services, reseller services, VPS services and dedicated server solutions.

    We’ve also moved all resellers who were on legacy packages to our new reseller packages to prevent confusions in resources and prices. The package was changed from the legacy package to one of our new packages based on current resource usage. This was also done to ensure that all resellers share the same level of resources.

    Price changes were done due to our upcoming changes to our new cloud-based shared hosting environment. Complete with Hyper-V 2012 R2, Windows Server 2012 R2, SQL Server 2014, MySQL 5.7, changes to our Level 3 network and contract with them, switch and routing equipment and more!

    We now offer all new Dedicated Severs with updated pricing and resources! Be sure to check those out!

    The next few months for us as well as our customers will be amazing! Upgraded servers, improved network performance, improved hardware RAID systems and much more!

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix as your hosting provider!
