Name Server Maintenance – 14 February

Maintenance has been scheduled for our primary name server for Friday 14 February.

Maintenance action:

The Clifton Data Centre will be performing server hardware relocation as part of a major expansion of their facility.

Maintenance schedule:

Date: Friday 14 February
07:00 to 15:00 SAST
05:00 to 13:00 GMT
24:00 to 08:00 EDT
21:00 Thursday to 05:00F Friday PDT

Expected downtime:

While a maintenance window of eight hours has been scheduled, the estimated downtime for the server should be less than four hours. During this time our secondary name server will be online to process DNS lookups. We therefore do not anticipate any impact on your website or email services.

Please note that we cannot guarantee correct propagation of DNS zones changes to our name server cluster during the maintenance window. Therefore, we recommend that you refrain from submitting any DNS changes (Custom DNS Records and MX Entries functions in cPanel) during this time.
