This is an important notice that details some changes that will impact your service. Read below to learn about: Expected / planned downtime, IP address changes, more.
We are migrating all existing Netherlands VPSes to accommodate network changes.
Each VM will be migrated to a new host node. This will cause temporary downtime during the migration process. Additionally, each VM will be assigned new IP addresses (both V4 and V6). We’ll be assigning customers IPs from newer subnets from our own ASN.
With the existing setup, we are using our own IPv4 and a leased subnet of IPv6 which are announced under our upstream’s ASN instead of our own. This update will allow us to use our own IPv4, our own IPv6, and our own ASN. The geographic location, datacenter, network, features, hardware specs of host nodes, etc will all remain the same.
Unfortunately it is not possible to migrate these servers with the IPs intact. Sometime after this mass migration is completed, we can then re-announce the subnet that your IP comes from with this new network setup and then can re-assign whatever IP you had originally if needed, but this will be done by request only and only after all VMs have been migrated.
Unfortunately this will not be known by us until after the migration for your individual VM has started. We do not have the option to choose what IP specifically will be assigned to your new VM. As soon as the VM is migrated, you will receive a new welcome email with your new IP.
This is to better accommodate our growth as a business and to ensure public network information accurately depicts IncogNET as being the ISP behind our IP space. Additionally, this new setup will allow us to better accommodate our growth and to increase our presence in this location.
We hope to start migrations next week. We’ll begin with some of our internal and personal servers to make sure our work flow for migrating customer servers is as optimized as possible.
UPDATE:If you are on, "summer.nl.incogvps.com" then this does not apply to you. You are already on the new network.
While citizens of Russia wake up daily to learn of new sanctions placed upon them by global corporations, more and more companies are jumping on the bandwagon to virtue signal that, they too, stand with Ukraine.
Our desire to provide a platform that allows users from around the world to access and publish information greatly outweighs our desire to "stick it to Putin" by denying Russian citizens the ability to use our services. We want you to be able to access and publish information about what is happening in the world. The great majority of sanctions imposed upon Russia only negatively impact the citizens who are of no fault of their geographic location in this world or the government who serves them.
We have Russian friends. We have Ukrainian friends. Like anywhere else on earth, most people are good hearted people who are just trying to live their life. We wish every citizen the best.
TL;DR: We're still providing service to Russia and will continue to do so unless it becomes illegal to do so under US Law.
It's been a busy month for us, but that hasn't prevented us from addressing some areas where we could improve our CloudLinux Shared Hosting service. One of the things we really strive for as a business is to be able to reflect upon our service offerings and improve them in areas where customers may have submitted suggestions, to match current market trends in feature sets, and to correct any annoyances that we ourselves may have as users of our own service. In fact, this very blog is hosted on our Dallas, Texas based Shared Hosting service and we host some of our own personal projects on both our shared hosting and KVM Virtual Servers.

Well, we’re back with a blog. When we first started, we ran a short-lived Wordpress blog that had gained some traction, but ultimately decided to replace it with a simple flat-file, bash-based blog ( BashBlog! ), but decided to ditch it after the novelty of managing a bash-based blog wore off and the chore of updating it settled in.
