As per our previous post about our Linux VPS Hosting Server upgrade/migration/maintenance, I’m pleased to update that upgrade/migration of our server vps3.sh3lls.net and vps5.sh3lls.net has been completed and all clients having accounts on these servers have been informed, so please do check your email if you are facing any issues, currently upgrade of vps1.sh3lls.net is going on, if you are facing any issues please immediately open a support ticket at https://secure.sh3lls.net
We are pleased to inform all our Linux VPS Hosting clients that we have started the server upgrade process and all Linux VPS should be soon moved to our new upgraded servers as already stated in our previous blog post, the upgrade should be transparent to clients, most of you will not notice any downtime at all, as it will be a live migration, you might just notice a very very short network disruption nothing more, if you face any other issues please immediately open a support ticket at https://secure.sh3lls.net so that we can look into it, once your VPS is migrated we will email you about it, moreover please note you just might need to setup your RDNS/PTR Records again and also your VPS Control Panel login and password will be changed, which we will already specify in the email that we will send to you once our LINUX VPS Hosting Servers are upgraded.
This whole upgrade process can take upto 48 hours.
With reference to our post earlier about upgrade of our Linux VPS Hosting server vps2.sh3lls.net the upgrade was smooth and now we are clearly able to see the difference, all vps are running very smoothly without any lag just like dedicated servers so we have now decided to upgrade all our Linux VPS Hosting servers, we have ordered few servers with the following specs:
CPU: AMD Dual Opteron 6128 (16 Cores x 2.0GHz)
HDD: SSD Drives
The Linux VPS server upgrade will almost transparent to clients as we will be doing Live / Online Migration in which the VPS is even not rebooted, it just freezed for a minute or two and then again unfreezed on the new VPS servers so it will just look like a short network interruption, all your process will keep running, but the only difference will be that your VPS Control panel logins might change so please do check your mails, as soon as your VPS is moved to the new server we will mail you your new login details for the new Upgraded Linux VPS Hosting Control Panel
I hope that all our clients will like and enjoy the improved performance in their VPS
