I have some good news for everyone with sites on Dallas. We will be migrating your server into new hardware. Dallas has been and still is a great server, however we are moving into new hardware based on the servers age and the performance of the server over the past 60-90 days.
I am very confident that everyone will love their web sites new home. Faster, Faster , Faster!!! I think I have had to much coffee today. Did I say the new server is a much faster?
We will be moving accounts from Dallas to the new server starting at 11PM on 9.20.2011.
NOTE ON SERVER IP AND HOST NAME
I wanted to correct a miscommunication on my part concerning IP address changes during this migration. Since this is a completely new server and host name, all accounts WILL be getting a new IP address. However, we are rerouting the old IP address to the new server, so you still WILL NOT need to make any IP changes or DNS modifications from your end.
Old host name: dallas.tchmachines.com
New host name: orion.tchmachines.com
Old IP: 126.96.36.199
New IP: 188.8.131.52
We will be updating this page as we move along during the restore.
Looking forward to talking to everyone on Tuesday Night.
I really look forward to the family giving us feedback on performance of the new server and how our staff handled the migration.
Go TCH !
