Exciting Changes Coming to ServedEZ
« on: July 11, 2019, 11:30:27 PM »
Dear Users,

It has been almost a year since I started ServedEZ Free Webhosting project. The idea behind this project was and is to give an opportunity to those everyday users and small businesses, who don't want to spend more $$ on mediocre hosting services. The goal was to provide a simple, easy to use and stable Webhosting solution to everyone, for no added cost. No-Frill unlimited/unmetered Webhosting, that just works.

Today I am happy to announce that ServedEZ is proudly hosting over 1,000 active users and ~1200 active websites. I am not going to say that this was a smooth ride. We had a couple of hiccups along the way, some due to my late-night modifications, some due to abusers trying to ruin it for everyone. But overall, close to a perfect uptime of 99.76%, which is pretty solid, especially with the fact this is a one-man show on a free service.

As this project continues to grow, the small server, where I started this project, can no longer handle all our needs. It is time for an upgrade. To something bigger, faster and better and that is what this announcement is all about.

I am migrating the Free server to something that is more powerful than what I currently have. Same great features, on a faster, more powerful server, powered by CloudLinux and DirectAdmin. This migration will take place on July 20th, at 9 PM EST and would approximately take up to 12 hours to complete successfully.

Some facts to know :

What happens to my data?

This will be a seamless migration with hopefully 0 downtime and no data loss. I have been testing every aspect of this major migration for the last 2 weeks and like to believe that it will be an easy migration for everyone. To maintain consistency, please refrain from making any kind of changes to your website during the migration period. Any changes made during that time frame will be lost.

While I will perform a complete offsite backup to ensure nothing is lost, please make your own backup and save it locally ahead of time.

How do I avoid downtime?

If you are using ServedEZ DNS servers, this will be an easy migration! Nothing is needed from your side.

However, if you are using 3rd party DNS such as Cloudflare, please ensure your domain is pointing to the new IP 142.54.180.147 once the migration is over. For the sake of ensuring everything is good to go, the old server will remain live for the next 72 hours after the migration is over. Please log in to DirectAdmin panel once the migration has been completed and ensure everything is good to go. I, ServedEZ or Nexus Bytes LLC will not be responsible for any data loss that might happen due to the migration process. User is liable for his/her own data and should have their own local backup at any given time. Not just for the migration but all the time.



If you have any question or concerns, please respond to this post or open a thread under the support section of our forum and I will be more than happy to answer. Please do not PM or email me for any kind of request.


There is another exciting update coming soon and I know most of you will love it. What it is? Stay tuned for the next announcement :)

I am waiting and hoping for this. ServedEZ has come a long way and given a lot of oppurtunities to people who wants to have their website without needing to spend any money. Thank you very much SE-JAY! And I hope you'll stay and help us with the migration process as most websites hosted on servedez uses cloudflare as their dns for features like css, html and javascript minify and also accelerators.

This is totally a project that I plan to continue, as long as I financially and physically can.

It is always amazing to see our old users, still sticking with us :)

Question, has the migration process been completed? I use the CloudFlare DNS. It's time to change the old IP to 142.54.180.147 or I still have to wait for the migration to complete.

Regards!

Hello everyone. Servedez hosting I want to thank you, for this opportunity, to have free hosting. Friends, this service is nowhere to be found. I was looking for a long time, but so far so good, and the same time free hosting, like Servedez has never found anywhere. Keep it up. Dear administrator, I want to ask, is the migration already done? I'm at https://free2.servedez.com:2222/ writing my username and password but, do not acces the my control pannel page.

We are 85% done folks! A little bit more and one reboot and we are ready to go.

Thank you for being patient.
