Cloud Migration, Phase 1

This evening, we commenced migrating the first bank of hosted websites to our new cloud service, beginning with and some of our premium hosting clients. There may be a brief interruption of services as worldwide DNS servers update individual website DNS to the new IP addresses. Rest assured the site migrations are going smoothly, and if for any reason your site does not come up when you go to it, you can check its status by going to and typing in your domain name, or simply clear your cache and restart your browser as the issue may be local to your machine.

Important: if you have email hosted with grassfrog, you will need to accept a new SSL certificate when the warning window pops up, in order to access your email.  Click Confirm Security Exception to make this acceptance a one-time thing and save the new certificate information in your email client.

I have manually checked all of the sites we have migrated thus far and they are showing up successfully.  We will continue to monitor sites throughout the migration to ensure a successful outcome.

Please check back here for updates. We expect Phase 1 of our server migration to be completed tonight, and Phase 2 to be announced shortly thereafter.
