We are planning a major upgrade to our Cloud platform which will result in improved performance and stability to our Managed Cloud Servers.
The upgraded Cloud platform will also allow us to move and upgrade all Web Hosting servers to the Cloud!
You will not only see improved performance with your Web Hosting accounts but also much better uptime and stability. We will also take this opportunity to upgrade the Percona MySQL of all Web Hosting servers to version 5.6 (from the current version 5.5) in anticipation of Magento 2's General Availability launch in Q4 2015 (Magento 2.0 requires at least MySQL 5.6 to run).
The upgrade for Web Hosting servers will start from the end of October 2015 and we expect to complete the upgrade for all servers by mid November 2015 (before the Holiday Sales Season).
The upgrade will involve moving from the current physical servers to our new Cloud powered servers which are specially designed for our Web Hosting services. As with any server move, there may be some DNS propagation delay. If you are not using our nameservers (ns1-ns4.aspirationhosting.com), we recommend you to use them to reduce the DNS propagation.
We will be sending separate emails to clients with the scheduled date and time of the server move in the coming weeks.
It is our tradition at Aspiration Hosting to constantly improve and upgrade our infrastructure and services in order to always provide you with the best services possible. We hope that you are as excited as we are about this upgrade and we thank you for your patience and understanding for any inconvenience that may occur during the upgrade process.
If you have any questions about the upgrade, feel free to contact us for further details.
