Hopefully the changes will present with no problems and the change over will be swift.

Over the next few weeks all customer accounts will be transferred from our existing servers on to our new cloud platform.  This new platform will provide a level of redundancy, performance and flexibility that cannot be matched on our current setup.  It will provide relief from some of the minor irritating bugs associated with the current single server setup and take us one big step closer to 100% fall over redundancy across our entire service.

The actual moves will be staged server by server and will take place during the night.  Each individual server move will be announced on our forums on this thread... here. There is expected to be an hour or two of downtime during the night while the sites are transferred due to the changing of IP addresses.  Any email's received during this time will be queued and still be delivered once the DNS has updated so it's not anything to be concerned about, no data will be lost.

Unfortunately the hosting company messed up! They changed all the servers over to the cloud reassuring us that the change over will be will be swift with no problems, however, this was not the case and there were numerous problems to deal with.

I thank the team for all the effort they have put in getting back online. We have had to rebuild the site from the bottom up.  >:(

But, there's always an upside and we are now well into the development of creating a completely new look website, this will be in the form of a portal that includes this forum. The portal will allow more articles and be able to carry local news events as well as lots of other features. We hope this redesign will be up and running asap.

Thank you all for your patience and do please carry on visiting . ;D
