If you are using 2skies.com DNS, then you need not adjust anything. We will notify you directly here once the upgrade has been complete.
Thanks for your patience.
The server Anchor is currently undergoing hardware maintenance due to a hard disk drive issue and as a result sites are currently inaccessible.
All account holders with sites on Anchor will be affected. All accounts have been backed up and data is unaffected. We thank you for your patience and aim to have the sites back up as soon as we can.
UPDATE 31/1/2010 6am GMT:
the issue has been resolved and all account holders should have working accounts and sites. In some cases sites may require DNS to still resolve to the new IP which could take some hours.
