A special effort this year will be made to improve our telephone customer service, and website support options. Additionally, a large part of the focus this year will be on delivering you updates and new services much faster. We are excited to service your account and appreciate your business.

Today, we are announcing a series of maintenance upgrades over the next couple of weeks. These upgrades are designed to enhance our current set of services and add some new functionality. Upgrades will be performed at various times during the day and night over the next couple of weeks. Only two upgrades will are expected to be service affecting and will be specially announced a minimum of 24 hours in advance.


Non-Service Affecting Upgrades:

DNS Server Upgrades: We will be updating the actual DNS software and migrate the DNS servers to new dual-quad core servers. While the service will not be available for a short time, no email or website downtime is expected.

Statistics Service Upgrades: We will be upgrading to the latest version of our statistics software as well as migrating the service to a new dual-quad core server. The latest version of the software will feature new reports and data mining capabilities. While the service will not be available for a short time, no email or website downtime is expected.
