« on: 2013 09 24, 14:22:30 »
TL;DR: Blacraft will be down sometime on September 30, and afterwards the new IP will be 85.236.109.242:2137.

Multiplay Gameservers - Important information!
Hi Mikkel,

Multiplay Gameservers are committed to providing the very best and latest network equipment with which to run our servers on. We very rarely have to upgrade this hardware, however to continue giving you the best experience possible, we have to implement upgrades periodically.

We are currently carrying out a large number of upgrades to our network in order to greatly improve the stability of the service we provide and we are emailing you today to let you know that we will be making some changes to your service next week as part of these upgrades.

We have scheduled this outage on:

Monday 30th September 2013 for approximately 60 minutes between the hours of:
9am (GMT +1) and 6pm (GMT+1)

Unfortunately part of the changes we're making require the IP address of your server  to change and whilst we try to prevent this where possible, we haven't been able to on this occasion. We are however able to provide the new IP address that your server will be moving to. This will be: 85.236.109.242:2137

Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this may cause you. We have not taken this decision lightly and believe this upgrade will provide great improvements with the quality of servers we provide.

 
If you have any questions please contact our Support Team and we will be glad to help.
 
The MultiplayGameservers.com Team.

More news:

Hi Mikkel,

As you may already be aware, we're currently in the process of making some important upgrades to our network. These upgrades increase our ability to handle large amounts of traffic and will greatly increase the stability and resiliency of the servers using this network.

 
An important part of our upgrades will be to replace some of our core networking equipment. We will be doing this in our Amsterdam data centre early next week. We do try where possible to limit any time where your server is unavailable but unfortunately it isn't possible to do so when replacing this hardware.
 
We will be doing this on Wednesday 9th October between the following times:
 
06:30 CEST
 
and
 
18:00 CEST
 
We expect the downtime to last for approximately 2-3 hours between the above window and we will do our very best to keep this to a minimum. There may also be some very short periods where your server is not available within this window.
 
Thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
