    From our hosting provider. I don’t expect this to cause us any problems, but posting here just in case!

    We have great news! As part of our mission to support you with your digital presence, we are always looking to improve your products and provide you with the most advanced and powerful hardware.

    On Thursday, March 21st we will be migrating you to a newer shared server. As part of this maintenance, the operating system will be upgraded from Ubuntu Bionic to Ubuntu Focal Fossa 20.04.

    In most cases, no action is required on your part, but we’ve prepared some documentation that will help you prepare for the upgrade to Ubuntu Focal:

    Our server logs indicate that you are managing your DNS through a third party for the domain(s) listed below:

    Action needed: Your Shared Server’s IP address will change as a result of this upgrade, which means you will need to provide that new IP to your DNS provider once this upgrade has been completed.

    It is very important that you update this information with your current provider! Otherwise, this might lead to downtime for your website. Although this isn’t going to be a permanent solution for future upgrades to your products, please check out our knowledge base article to learn more about DNS records.

    You can also consider switching to using DreamHost nameservers to avoid this problem now and in the future, or transferring your domain registration to DreamHost; We will handle all the details for future upgrades, so you can focus on making your business successful.

    Your new server will have a new hostname once this maintenance is complete. We will let you know what that new hostname is after this maintenance has been completed. Both your old and new hostname will work for one week to allow you time to update your hostname as needed.

    We do not expect this upgrade to incur any downtime whatsoever. We will follow up again with an email a week from now once the process has been completed.

    If you’ve got any questions about this upgrade, please be sure to check out the knowledge base article linked above, or reach out to our technical support team. We’re standing by, ready to help!

    Looks like it all went well enough. Have not seen any problems the past few days.
