Scheduled Server Migration (Scheduled)
  • Priority - Medium
  • Affecting Server - Shared Web Hosting
  • BoltHost web hosting accounts on IP addresses and will be migrated across to a new server this weekend (24th-26th June) in the early hours of the morning. 

    This may occur on Saturday, Sunday or Monday morning sometime between the hours of 12am and 6am depending how we go for time and where your account is in the transfer queue.

    Downtime should be no more than two hours and should occur sometime between 12am and 6am in the morning.

    No action is required on your part unless you have recently received an email from us regarding required IP Address changes (in which case please action ASAP).

    If you have any questions or concerns please let us know. 

    Things to be aware of:

    The default version of PHP will change from 5.5 to 5.6. If you run a PHP site please ensure it is compatible with PHP 5.6 to ensure that there is no downtime to your site. If your site specifically requires PHP 5.5 you can configure this after the transfer has completed. The new server has the ability to run any PHP version that you require. This can be set from the "Select PHP version" option in the Control Panel on the new server.

    If your site was built by myself, The Fount or Intuit Creative then no action is required on your part.

    Why we are doing this:

    We are moving customers to a new server simply because the existing one is now due for replacement. Replacing hardware before it wears out is an important part of maintaining reliability.

    New features coming with the new server:

    Ability to run any version of PHP from 4.4 up. You can choose the PHP version that you require from the control panel.

    All older PHP versions will be hardened with patches to fix security vulnerabilities, even on versions no-longer supported by the PHP development team.

    Ability to install/remove most PHP modules with a simple point and click interface from within the control panel.

    Ability to set PHP configuration values from the control panel using a simple point and click interface without the need to edit configuration files.

    Significant security, reliability and performance improvements. No restarts required for Kernel security updates will reduce downtime.

    If you have any questions or concerns please get in touch!
