IP Address Migration

Our uplink provider in our Auckland, Albany DC has informed us of a requirement to migrate some of our IP Address ranges.

Unfortunately the ranges affected will impact some core shared web servers - earth, and mars.  Some VPS servers will be affected, if this affects your server you will have been notified of these changes.  Email services will be unaffected.

What do I do?

As a majority of customers use our name servers for DNS we have made these changes for you, your website will contnue to function normally on the new IP Address.  If you don't receive an email you should be fine.

Some customers will be using other name servers, this is fine, but it means we cannot automate these changes for you, please use the below table to update your DNS records.  This is usually and easy change made at your DNS provider or registrars website.

Web Server Old IP New IP
earth.simplehost.co.nz

60.234.67.52 or 60.234.77.170

103.6.144.210
mars.simplehost.co.nz 60.234.67.50 103.6.144.211

When?

The old IP Addresses will be inaccesible after the 22cnd July 2012 so we urge customers to make these changes as soon as you can to avoid any disruption.  We will also be emailing those who are affected and need to make these changes.

Why?

After recent issues our uplink provider has made steps to remove Orcon transit from their redundant network, this in turn has meant handing back all Orcon address space.  It will also ensure the most redundant path to our services is used in future using the new IP Addressing.

The new IP Addresses are carrier-neutral and permanent for us, so we don't anticipate any future IP Address changes.

 

If you have any questions, or need help making the changes please don't hesitate to email support@simplehost.co.nz or call.

Apologies for the inconvenience caused,

The Simplehost Team.
