Server 20 67.15.16.19 (the transfer will last till April, 10, 2006)

Server 22 67.15.24.22 (the transfer will last till March, 26, 2006)

Server 23 67.15.42.48 the transfer will process till April, 10, 2006

Server 22 appeared to be one of the most stable until recently.

What risks are there in the move?

MArtin, most likely all the nameserver IPs will be changed and the new nameservers will be dns.hostony com and .org on those servers.

MoJo and Bonnie, sometimes proplems with NS records appear when the accounts are moved to different nameserver IPs, but they do not last for long. So the best way to avoid problems is to guard your account and let us know immediately if something goes wrong.

Martin, your private nameservers on server 20 will have to be switched to different IPs too.

My domain names are with an Australian registrar so I'm going to have to provide them with the new IPs ?

Which means that websites will be unavailable for a day or so ?

MoJo, you are absolutely right.

The matter is that we have also had some outdated nameservers (e.g NS16.HOSTONY.COM, NS16.HOSTONY.NET) hosted on 2 of the old servers, and people who had their domains registered elsewhere and haven't contacted treir registrar companies are likely to have problems with nameserver records. however the problem vanishes almost immediately after the new NS recods are set by the registrar.

NS18.HOSTONY.NET NS19.HOSTONY.NET should also be changed to dns.hostony.com and dns.hostony.org

I just now saw this thread! Please look at my issue here (NB the third update):

http://forum.hostony.com/index.php?showtopic=4873

In short: Go to http://www.dlma.com

If it says, "Old Server". Wait, and try again later, the name server id hasn't migrated to your side of the world yet. I did update its registrar's entries to dns.hostony.com/.org, yesterday. Just wait.

If it says, "New Server", all is well. Thank you for a great job!

If the server could not be found, there's a problem. You may not have done the migration correctly. Would you please investigate? (Hint: This is the problem I have with both dlma.com (different registrar) and daliblume.com (Hostony registrar), both of which have been updated to the new dns's.)

Thanks, Lehrer. I know the migration won't be trivial. It'll help us all if you announce (directly in email is the best) when you copy the sites, and when you've redirected the dns entries.

We can ftp directly to each server and migrate "missing" updates ourselves, but if we know the window of transfer, it'll help us keep an eye out for it.

So ns18.hostony.net and ns17.hostony.net need to be changed to dns.hostony.com and dns.hostony.org

Lehrer, when should I change the Name Servers over?
Immediately or once you've moved everything to the new server?
