Posted by Jorge Catena on 13 October 2014 12:37 PM


We have bad news about this, the company from where we had those servers went out of business, we never got their notification about it, we are working with the main provider (since it seems like they were resellers), trying to bring our servers back. In the case of the shared accounts of EU1, we have backups of all the data (that's in the worst scenario case), unfortunately, we don't have it of the VPS nodes, that's why we are actively working trying to get the old servers back while we do the migration. We really sorry about this, but this is something that happened and that's beyond of our scope.

We are going to update this notice as soon as we get something new.

We appreciate your patience and understanding.
