Dns Server Migrations!

Head Guru

Recommended Posts

Greetings TCH Family,


Our DNS Servers have been happily collocated in another data center facility for nearly 10 years. We were recently informed that the data center where two of our DNS servers are located will be ceasing operations. Since we are being forced to move our servers, we are taking this opportunity to move the servers into our own Data Center.


The following DNS Servers are scheduled for immediate replacement : : ns1.totalchoicehosting.com, ns1.snhdns.com dn3.totalchoicehosting.com, dns3.snhdns.com


If your domain is pointed to us using the above DNS Host Names you will need to take NO action. Your domain will continue to work after our migration to our new servers.


If you are using the DNS Servers IP Address to point your domain name to us then you will be required to update the IP at your DNS registrar.


Most domain registrations are done using DNS Host names and only customized DNS services use IP address as host name.


I will be updating this thread with the new IP Address allocations for the above servers within the next 24 hours. Once the new IP addresses have been published we will be posting them here.

This is simply a general information notice of our plans. We will be updating this thread as we move along with this migration.


Thank you for your time in this matter.


It is a great day to be a TCH GURU!


Yours in Hosting,


Bill Kish

The DNS server migrations are complete. We have been monitoring it for some time now and will continue to do so for the next couple of days. The process involved around 26000 dns zones on the first server and 16000 on the other which needs to be pointed to the respective new boxes. All tests indicate they are now resolving via the new ones on the cluster. If you have set the nameservers at your registar with the IP, you will need to change the IP to the following -


ns1.totalchoicehosting.com or ns1.snhdns.com ::

dns3.totalchoicehosting.com or dns3.snhdns.com ::


Please do not hesitate to contact our support team if you are facing any issues or have questions.
