Impacted equipment:

On Friday, October 5, beginning at 9 PM Central time, we will be performing necessary critical maintenance on the server “gil.machighway.com” to replace a failing hard drive. We are also using this opportunity to upgrade the server hardware as well as add an additional redundant drive to ensure disk integrity and minimize downtime in the future.

For extended times during this maintenance period the server will be offline while sites are copied to the new drives. This will mean that your site and email will be inaccessible while this copying is taking place. No email messages sent to you during this period will be lost and will just be delayed in arrival.

For most customers there is nothing you need to do. However, if your the name servers for your domain are not set to “ns1.machighway.com” and “ns2.machighway.com” you will need to login to the outside provider where you host the DNS for your domain and change any records currently pointing to 74.52.144.114 to 184.173.226.69.

Typically we schedule a 48 hour window to perform this maintenance; this may result in several hours of downtime for each site during this period. Our systems engineers will do everything within their power to ensure the most minimal downtime possible.

We appreciate your patience as we make these necessary and pro-active changes. Please let us know if there are any questions regarding this maintenance =)
