Why is my hosting account being migrated?
CloudLinux 8 comes with advanced security, improved resource management, updated software, and better integration with new technologies. We're always looking for ways to improve our platform and technology. To provide these benefits, we need to migrate your hosting account to a new server.
What can I expect from the migration process?
To ensure the smoothest possible experience, we’ll take care of moving everything for you. We'll send you an email before your migration begins.
When all your data is moved and we’re ready to make the switch from CloudLinux 6 to CloudLinux 8, you may experience brief downtime. But we’ll do our best to keep any downtime to a minimum.
We’ll then send you an email when your migration is complete.
Do I need to update my DNS?
No. You won’t need to make any DNS changes for this migration.
When is the migration happening?
Migrations will be occurring throughout 2024. Email notifications will be sent out before your migration.
Can I reschedule my migration?
Unfortunately, we can't accommodate requests to reschedule individual migrations.
Will my cost or renewal date change because of this migration?
No. Your cost and renewal date won't change because of this migration.
