RSS Subscribe Scheduled Maintenance: SQL Server Migration
Posted on 27/10/11 02:37PM

Our SQL 2000 Service, mssql.mydns.net.nz will be retired on Friday 18 November 2011. This decision has been made because SQL 2000 is over 10 years old and we can no longer support the software, or the hardware providing the service. All current SQL 2000 databases will be migrated to a replacement server running the latest version of Microsoft SQL, SQL 2008 R2 unless we are advised otherwise.

RSS Subscribe Email outage at Albany datacentre
Posted on 18/10/11 01:32PM

This announcement only applies to our Corporate and Business plan users

There is currently an email outage with our upstream providers.
Our providers are working to resolve this. There are authentication issues and that means that your mail client will ask to re-enter your password. We request that you do not enter any password and cancel that prompt as the outage is at the datacentre and when the issue is resolved, you won't have that pop up.


The outage started at 1PM and service resumed at 1:30PM. The mail storage locked-up at 100% usage and needed a reboot to recover. At the moment our providers suspect an Operating System error as all hardware is reported as being OK. Our providers will continue to monitor the service.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

RSS Subscribe Paymex credit card payments not being processed
Posted on 28/09/11 01:14PM

Our credit card payment provider Paymex has announced that they are no longer processing credit cards due to being closed down by their bank. Therefore we have had to disable the credit card payment option in our domain manager system. We do still accept payment by direct credit, online banking and cheque.
If you have a domain that is due to expire within the next week, and you don't think you will be able to make payment in time, please contact us. We do recommend renewing domains well before the expiry date so there is no risk of them expiring.

Currently there appears to be a problem with Paymex and it's ability to process Mastercard payments.
