The web hosting servers are being migrated due to a recent tragedy, the control panel used behind the scenes at SwiftLayer was developed by someone who recently passed away. In order to make sure the systems hosting your accounts are up to date and running smoothly, we are transitioning your accounts over to a commercial control panel recognized throughout the industry as a leader in virtualization.

We have taken this short downtime seriously and as such we have upgraded the hardware to 12GB of RAM, Dual Quad Core i7 Processors w/HT creating a total of 8 cores and 8 virtual cores. This upgrade puts our hosting environment above the competition and will bring your sites performance to new levels.

We at SwiftLayer are committed to excellence and uptime, we appreciate your patience while this migration takes place. If you have any questions feel free to open a support ticket and one of our staff will be happy to assist you.

Thank you,

I was worried when I saw the title of this topic. But you guys got this done as quick as I saw it. Nice job that was faster than any board downtime I have ever seen. <- My new Blog

Was experiencing some connection problems this afternoon (gmt +1), shortly..

But the new hardware sounds real nice. And the downtime was next to nothing.

Nice job indeed!
