Select one of the links below to jump to a query:

In September 2018, some customers on a Linux Web Hosting plan will be upgraded to new and up-to-date infrastructure.

  • High Availability infrastructure to improve website uptime
  • Up to date hardware with better performance
  • Support for the latest PHP and MySQL extensions
  • Regular security patching

We encourage customers to check the following after their migration date:

  1. If DNS is currently hosted elsewhere, customers will need to update their A records to point to a new IP address, which will be confirmed via email once your website has been migrated. This must be done within 2 weeks after the migration.
  2. Customers must check their website to ensure it is functioning as expected as the new hosting server contains some web server software upgrades.
  • Support for PHP 5.6, 7.0 & 7.2
  • The minimum supported PHP version will change from 5.2.17 to 5.3.3 
  • The PHP Server API will change from Apache 2.0 Handler to CGI/FastCGI
  • Perl will be upgraded from 5.8.8 to 5.10.1
     

There will be no additional costs or changes to your plan fees. However, after the website is migrated, customers will see a charge on your next invoice but it will be accompanied by a credit for the same amount.

Should customers have any further questions about this migration, please contact the Hosting and Domains team on 1300 378 638 or support@iinethosting.net.au. Opening hours are listed here.
