We have monitored all migrated services for 30 minutes and are confident that the migration has not caused degraded performance across any systems moved.
The migration of all content has been completed. All services have been moved from MERLIN to KASPER. If you are a web hosting client, please contact us to ensure your DNS records are still valid. We will monitor services for a while to ensure the migration has not degraded performance.
Whilst the database content is replicated from MERLIN to the new server, KASPER, connections to the database will be unavailable and all services reliant will be taken offline. We apologise for this and will post further updates as soon as the replication has completed.
Transfer in Progress
The transfer process for all data held on MERLIN is in progress. We will provide further updates here as the migration process continues. Client services are not yet affected.
We have begun the process of migrating all content and services hosted on MERLIN to a new server, KASPER which has a better spec for the services it will run.
We believe all services are now back online. We will continue to monitor the situation.
Our instance has been re-deployed and most services for web content have now been restored. We will continue to work to ensure everything is restored and that service is stable.
Declared as Minor Incident
We are continuing to work with Vultr to restore our services. Currently we are re-deploying one of our instances which will then allow us to resume services for our web content.
Host Node Outage
Vultr is currently experiencing a host node outage which has affected out web content service. This has also had knock-on affects within our Discord Bots service. We are working with them to resume service as soon as possible.
The web content server is fully migrated. At this time we ask all clients using our hosting system to update their DNS records, replacing all instances of 188.8.131.52 with 184.108.40.206 to resume your service.
At this time many of our DNS records have not propagated the changes and so many services may still appear offline.

The web server is back online. We are re-configuring content now!
Our web content server has been built. We are now provisioning the disk.
