    • PHP 5.6.9
    • PHP 5.5.25
    • PHP 5.4.41

    We’ve also installed the new IonCube v5 loaders for all supported PHP builds. Zend Guard loaders are now installed under PHP 5.6 and are now available for use.

    The Phalcon PHP framework has been updated to the new v2 release which adds a lot of exciting new features!

    We’ve also done some custom changes to our PHP installations that have reduced the overall memory and improved performance across all servers.

  • Level 3 Upcoming Maintenance / Carrier Upgrades

    No comments May 12th, 2015 16 View(s)

    Level 3 has notified us of upcoming maintenance to their network that will affect our upstream circuit for our Denver, Colorado location. Below is a summary of the maintenance notice we’ve received from them.

    Level 3 will implement scheduled maintenance as part of a global standardization project taking place over several months in 2015, across multiple locations, to consolidate the VPN backbone. This project will improve performance for customers allowing for more optimal routing and a less complex operating environment. This maintenance will also include a software upgrade to add enhanced features as well as increase reliability and long term stability. Within this simplified environment, we will be able to provide quicker resolution of trouble issues and improved service delivery timelines. Because this project is consolidating a complex area of our network, a longer outage duration will occur when work is being performed on these devices.

    Scheduled Date: 05-28-2015
    Scheduled Time:
     6:00 AM – 11:00 AM GMT
    Max Outage Duration: 2 Hours

    During this time our operations in Denver will be offline / unavailable. This includes VPS servers, dedicated servers, shared hosting, TeamSpeak as well as our Email services. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support department.

    Thank you for choosing ASPnix!

  • MX01 Maintenance

    No comments April 24th, 2015 13 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 10 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!
