Web Server Upgrades to Windows Server 2016

17 March 2017 - Posted by Doug, in Network Announcements

Over the next few months, our servers will be upgrading all our Shared Hosting Web Servers, going from Windows Server 2012 R2 to Windows Server 2016. This will allow customers to take advantage of many new features, including faster page loading times. To prevent long downtime for any customers, each current web server will be cloned, and after exhaustive testing, the Clone Servers will switch over to Production Servers.

By implementing the upgrades in this fashion it allows us to perform the upgrades without impacting customers websites on and off during the period. Once the upgrade is complete, there will be a short "Outage" of around 3 minutes, whilst the final changes are put in place. These works will begin on 20th March 2017, are expected to take 6 to 8 weeks in test and trials (all of this will not affect your websites) and finally the 3 minutes outage when the servers are switched to Windows Server 2016.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact support.
