Due to a Global Price increase on Domain names, we have had to slightly change our prices for Domain registration and Web Hosting!
However with the slight price increase we are also offering Extra Webspace
$20 Was the standard price for Domain name registration + 50MB, New Prices are $25 + 100 MB Webhosting!
See our Hosting Pages for more information
We have moved our support site…well not the URL but the software
It is now integrated in the main client login (where you sign up for orders, so its just a single sign on)
Server Migration have been complete and all Websites are now on the new Server
Since the nameservers were changed earlier it may take a few hours for DNS to resolve
To check if DNS has resolved from your Network do the following
Start > Run
type in CMD
On Command Prompt type in
If the entries resolve to 188.8.131.52
Then DNS has not yet resolved on your ISP / Network, this usually takes a few hours
If the Entry resolves to
Then it means you DNS has resolved
Next Step is for you to check that your sites are all working well
If you have any problems please log a request at http://support.mpadc.com and explaining the problem and we will try and resolve this for you
We have moved a brand new server thus there maybe some 3rd party modules which we may have missed out, if you find anything missing please let us know
ALL accounts have been transferred over we are now in the process of running a sync to ensure data from the old server corresponds to data on the new server
Namesservers has been changed aswell so we should be all ready to go !
Migration all complete all accounts have now been moved to the new server
Next Stage is Synching data between old host and new host which should carry over any changes made since the migration
Then nameservers to be changed..
watch this space!

Disk Cloning Unsucessful
Disk Cloning method was unsuccessful, back to plan one with migrating each accounts individually, see previous email. However all sites are still up and running
Regarding our email yesterday about the server migration we mentioned that the server will be located on a new IP address. Please disregard the instructions sent yesterday, instead we are migrating the server using Disk Cloning technique which means that data will be copied over from disk to disk, making a copy of the disk on the old server to the new server!No data will be lost and all IP addresses and current configuration will be the same the only difference will be the Hardware.
In order to achieve this we will be pulling the server offline at
04:30am UK Time
which means that ALL websites will be unavailable (Including MPADC.com Helpdesk and Client area) for a period of at least 2-3 hours whilst the disk cloning takes place
We Hope to get the server back online by 08:00am UK time 03:00am EDT, however please visit our blog for further updates
Keep an eye on this blog for Updates!
