Dear Mike,
The time for our big Data Center move is quickly approaching and I wanted to give you another update as to how everything is progressing.

For those of you who signed up with us in the last few weeks, this will be news to you! Your websites are already hosted at our new data center, so you will not be affected by the move. Please take a look at my first announcement here:
Announcing The New Ecommerce Data Center

We've been very diligent in planning the move of our data center and we're on schedule with all preparations. Our primary target date for the relocation of all servers is the end of next week: Midnight, Friday March 28th. At that time, for a period of up to 48 hours, there will be service unavailability. It is not certain when your account will become unavailable or how fast it will come back up. Please allow ample time for us to make the move safely and securely.

I know I'm asking a lot of you and am truly thankful for your patience. You can expect significant service improvements with this move. It is likely that most accounts will only be down a portion of the allotted 48-hour window.

Once your site is up and online, you can rest confidently knowing that it is hosted in a brand-new high tech Data Center. With multiple large, ultra-fast connections to the Internet, a state-of-the-art power grid and redundancy systems and high-capacity cooling, the new Ecommerce Data Center is the place to be for your website, for years to come.

Mike, next week I'll email you again shortly before the move - and I'll have some inspiring pictures as to what your websites can call their new home.

Until then!

Kind Regards,

http://www.ixwebhosting.com


Just so you know it's comming. I'll update you when I get updated as to when this is going to happen.

I've been with this host for around 4 years. So, unfortunately, it's still going to happen. They told me today, it will most likely be Friday the 28th of March.

That's when I think it will be. Midnight, to me, is at the end of the day.

03-27-08 update:
Dear Mike,
Our Big Data Center Move Is A Go! As I've been informing you the past few weeks, we will be moving all of our servers to a brand new state-of-the-art facility in Columbus, OH.
All our preparations are being finalized and we're on schedule to begin the move at Midnight on Friday, March 28th 2008 (ie. early Saturday morning). For a period of 24-48 hours, services will be down.
can't thank you enough for your patience with our move. So far, the feedback I've received from you has been tremendous and very supportive. I truly appreciate it.

While we've allotted a 48-hour window for this move, we're striving to have all services back online by 9am EST on Sunday morning, or earlier. As soon as everything has been restored, I'll email you again with an update. If you should still be experiencing issues after this time, please don't hesitate to contact us.


Now you know what I know. Midnight friday to 9am sunday is the window. (EST)
