Scheduled Maintenance

Our datacenter partner will be performing maintenance on the router connected to the server, which may result in a brief period of interrupted connectivity. Total downtime is expected to be less than 15 minutes during the maintenance window:

Start: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 12:00AM CDT
End: Wednesday, September 25, 2013 8:00AM CDT

Please note: you may see a brief period of slow, or interrupted, connectivity while the maintenance is completed.

Changes to the host for FTP connections

Quick announcement for current hostees who have not received my email:

I’ve just switched over to Cloudflare’s DNS for added security and there will be a small change you have to make to connect to the FTP via a client now.

If you find yourself having difficulty logging in, simply change your FTP host from ‘domain.com’ to ‘direct.domain.com’. Everything else should remain the same.

So for example, if you were originally given a FTP login info with asterous.com for the host, just switch it over to direct.asterous.com.

Let me know if you’re still having any issues and I’ll look into it ASAP.

Scheduled Maintenance

The server will be rebooted in order to install to a new kernel. Total downtime is expected to be less than 30 minutes during the maintenance window:

Start: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 12:00AM EST
End: Wednesday, February 20, 2013 6:00AM EST

Please note that the server may be rebooted at any time during the window above.

This new kernel provides enhanced security updates and server performance upgrades, and it is necessary to continue operating the server at peak performance levels.
