    You will get two nameservers as you have now, however this time they will be on seperate class C networks. This should ease problems with certain foreign domains that require this. Hopefully that answers your question.

    Hi Andrew,

    That's great news!

    I'm assuming the oldest servers will be upgraded first? Will all servers be upgraded? I'm on cpanel34, which i assume would be one of the last to be upgraded?

    Thanks.

    Cool. Great update Andrew. I was waiting for PHP5 so I can run whois.cart among other stuff. I wish you can make a special server for RoR, but then again... these are fine for now.

    Very cool is what I think Andrew.

    You mentioned cpanel10 as being the first to be moved. If that is the case, do you have a schedule in place yet? Will there be any downtime? If so, how long?

    Do I need to shut my forums down, or will the transfer be transparent?

    I look forward to PHP5, as more and more of my software supports it.

    Thanks for all of your continued efforts and hard work!

    Jim

    For those of us who created our own nameservers, what is the protocol? Create new nameservers the same way we did the old ones, and then switch at the registrar?

    Guess I'll have to look up some old info to figure this out.

    Oldest servers and those in special need will be upgraded first. At this time all that is know is that cpanel10 will be first followed by cpanel20 most likely. cpanel34 really has not had any problems, is fairly new (Dual Xeon+), and running solid. We still have a few servers running P4's.

    No actual downtime will be involved but there will be a period of time where your site may load from the old server for some users and from the new server for others. With heavy MySQL applications it would probably be best to shut them down once the transfer begins to avoid losing information that is added after that.

    You will simply have to change the IP addresses associated with your custom nameservers. These IP addresses will be available before the actual transfer.

    Yes, PHP4 will still function exactly as it currently does for quite some time. PHP5 will be available by default via .php5 files but this can be changed by each user to execute .php and other extensions as well.

    Unfortunately, cpanel19 is probably one of the last servers that will be upgraded.

    Can you give us an idea of how long it will take to switch all the servers over and a general idea of what order you are thinkng of?

    I'm on two seperate servers...will there be a huge gap between their upgrades?

    anyway...thanks for your efforts.
    We hope to have all servers upgraded by sometime this summer but only time will tell if that is even possible. Once we get the process fully ironed out it shouldn't be a big deal to get the upgrades done quickly. There very well could be a gap between the two depending on which servers they are.

    Are you referring to clustering or something along those lines? That simply is not feasible for shared hosting. DNS servers are simply being placed on seperate class C networks due to restrictions of certain forgeign domain types.

    We will offer both unmanaged and managed dedicated server solutions.

    DNS servers on different class C subnets is all well and good, but are they still going to run on the same box? Or a different box consequently connected to different network hardware etc.?

    This is going to be awesome.

    Andrew, this is awesome stuff, also I'm pumped about client exec. I will be jumping on that.

    More on the custom nameservers - Will we be informed once the move happens, so that we can quickly go in and change the IP of these custom nameservers?

    Is there a potential of downtime for these nameservers if the move happens and we don't know about it, because they point to the old IP's?

    Will you post a message or announcement before each server gets moved?

    Thanks!
