MySQL upgrade on all of our web servers

We have some good news!

We will be upgrading our MySQL database servers this weekend from version 5.5 to 5.6.

We believe there are no backward compatibility issues for our customers. If you are interested in more details, please consult the MySQL upgrading page:

We expect less than 10 minute downtime on Sunday early morning between 1am to 2am UTC+0 time.

New version is better suited for some popular plugins and frameworks.

Thank you for enjoying the best web hosting deal on the market.

Jun/14 – Relocation of the EU data center

Following multiple downtimes in our EU data center, we have decided to move our servers to a brand new and very green data center Digitalis.

The relocation will be performed tomorrow, Jun 14 at 19:00 UTC+0 (21:00 CET).

Due to close proximity of the data centers, we are expecting downtime between 45 minutes to 2 hours.

Here are some highlights of DC Digitalis:

  • Adiabatic evaporation cooling
  • Rotary UPS installed instead of dirty batteries
  • Residual heat is used to heat the near by greenhouses, motor generators and machine rooms
  • Can house up to 340 racks, which represents space for 8,160 servers with standard dimensions
  • DC Digitalis needs two-thirds less energy to supply the supporting infrastructure than conventional data centres.

Thank you for understanding.
