Update: Migration of thousands hosting accounts had been completed. Should you are experiencing any technical issues, kindly create a support ticket and we would be glad to assists.
Thank you for your understanding.
Dear Staples Clients.
We have started migrating hosting accounts on Staples including yourself to a new, better, stronger server that we will call Drawer. We are proud to offer this top of the line, industry leading, configuration to the long-time clients on the Staples server. Benefits of the move include:
1) The new server features a RAID SSD array for MySQL and OS partitions. This allows for the fastest possible access to your databases, files, and more.
2) Redundant 10 Gig hookups allowing for the least amount of network disruption possible in case of attacks or abuse.
3) The new server has three times the amount of ram than the older server. This would allow further caching of IO which is generally the bottle neck on shared hosting services.
We look forward to helping you out in making the move as painless as possible. Please remember we are doing this for the overall betterment of services and the improved network and performance of your hosting account. All updates regarding migration will be posted here on this announcement.
Apology for inconvenience caused as we always look forward to provide better hosting services and keep up with the latest technology available on ground as the many years goes by.
If you are using a third party DNS for your domains or your domains are purchased outside, you must change the A records for your domains to point to the shared IP of the new server (188.8.131.52). If you have a dedicated IP and are using a third party dns provider, as soon as we assign your site a new IP, you will need to point to the new IP using your current registrar's domain panel. You will need to change the IP Address ONLY once the migration is completed. As long as your Domains are pointing to our main DNS servers namely
ns1.vertito.com and ns2.vertito.com,
then there will be no change required at your end.
NOTE: As the data transfer is resource intensive operation so you may experience slightly sluggish performance during the migration. We understand that this might be troublesome and we look forward to helping you out in making the move as painless as possible.
We will update here once the migration is completed. The old server Staples will remain up and running for several days to make sure that every site is pointing to new server called Drawer. We will also setup forwarding to redirect traffic from Staples to Drawer, which will be done automatically.
We believe this will immensely improve the service we are offering and thank you for your patience. If you encounter any problems at all in regards to this, please simply create a support ticket or email us at email@example.com.
Thank you for your understanding and patience.
