Datacenter Migration on August 9th

Our upstream provider Liquid Web will be performing an evening maintenance on Aug 9th to migrate between data centers.

During the maintenance window, the Control Panel will be temporarily unavailable (approximately 1 hour) to ensure synchronization between locations. Also during this maintenance window, your websites and databases will experience temporarily READ ONLY mode to ensure accurate data transfer. After the migration, the database management IPs will be updated to the IPs listed at the link below. You will see this change reflected in the control panel as well.

NOTE: Database read only status will be based on size and complexity of individual database. Large databases may take 20-60 minutes for synchronization. The maintenance window is expected to last for approximately six hours.

Any further updates, as well as the list of new database IP’s can be found here:
