    Cricket Web Server Move - 7th July 2014

    On 7th July, we will be moving from our current server to a new server as required by our hosting provider:

Your dedicated server will need to be migrated over to this new and improved setup, as we are closing our presence in the old data center.

    This will involve a period of downtime of approximately 8 hours across the following time. The outage period will vary depending on
    network speeds at the time, disk performance as well as general load already on the server.

    We will be providing updates on our Facebook and Twitter pages so please stay tuned to them for the latest updates.

    Will the site still look the same or will there be some change in appearance?

    No, there won't be any difference to the appearance.

    It's just a back-end server change basically.

    Yes 8 hours is pretty much worst case. It should be a lot less providing everything goes well.

    There's DNS changes as well though so it may take people a little bit of time to hit the new server.

    No feedback? I assume that means no one is having any problems?
