  Important Information - Planned Server Upgrades (January 2013)
Posted by: webnetics - 28-12-12, 02:04 PM - Forum: Network Status / Server Upgrades - No Replies

Dear Valued Customer,

We apologies for any inconvenience caused, by these server upgrades. These will take place in January 2013 and there will be a downtime of 3 – 4 hours while the data from the old servers are migrated to the new servers. These upgrades will take place overnight to minimise the effects on customer accounts and there will be no loss of emails, these will be staked while the upgrades take place. This will allow us to expand our other hosting businesses.

We are planning to transfer all customer accounts in three (3) batches

Batch 1 (Non-database websites)
Batch 2 (Database driven websites)
Batch 3 (eCommerce Websites)

We will inform all customers when we planned to do the server upgrades in January 2013.

  Spam Filters
Posted by: webnetics - 10-12-12, 07:41 AM - Forum: Network Status / Server Upgrades - Replies (1)

Dear Valued Customer,

On the 8th December 2012, an automatic upgrade to our spam filters had caused for all emails to be rejected by any sender. Causing no emails to be allowed through, we have be working through the weekend to fix this problem. We have now contacted the software designers and they are working very hard to get a fix for this bug. They are estimating that a fix will be with us by the 12th December 2012.

In the mean time we have disabled the spam filter, so there will be an increase in spam in the next few days.

Please accept our apologies for this.
