Price / Plan Changes

Salams,

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

Migration Complete!

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

From Windows
Start > Run
type in CMD

On Command Prompt type in
ping mpadc.com

If the entries resolve to 69.16.237.199

Then DNS has not yet resolved on your ISP / Network, this usually takes a few hours

If the Entry resolves to
69.167.159.63

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

Migration Update – Latest

:Last Updated: Thursday 3rd June 2010 07:55 am
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

Salams
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
23:30PM EDT
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!
