As a result of the unexpected downtime on the Monday 14th June and then the brief blip on Friday 25th June, Freedom I.T. Systems decided it was in the best interest of our customers to perform a migration over the weekend from the current setup to some new hardware. The work was scheduled to be completed by 02:00 this morning, but due to unexpected delays in DNS updates this target was not met and the work was instead completed as of 08:00 this morning.
No hosted data, including websites, databases and emails were lost in the migration, and each individual customer was only briefly unavailable for less than 30 minutes.
The end result is we are now hosted on faster and in theory more reliable and stable hardware and we have the ability to scale and cater for more users as and when.
If anyone has any problems this morning with email access (some people may need to open a cmd prompt window and type “ipconfig /flushdns” and then “ipconfig /registerdns”), then please get in touch with Alex, who is available all morning to deal with these queries.
Once again, thank you for your co-operation and understanding during this last month!
