As part of our continuous commitment to providing better services and a better hosting experience to our valued customers, Host IT Smart will be carrying out a major data center migration on May 21, 2023.

Typically, we provide a 30 days prior notification and migration window, but due to the recent frequent outages, we are expediting the process and moving all our servers from the current data center at Reliance IDC Mumbai (Tier III) to ST Telemedia Global Data Centre Gandhinagar (Tier IV) to ensure improved performance stability.

Who Will Be Affected?

All Host IT Smart clients using VPS service will be impacted by this major server migration.

When Will this Happen?

The migration will be carried out on 21 May 2023 from 12:00 AM to 2:00 PM IST.

What Will Happen During the Migration?

  1. We will shut down and disconnect the servers, relocate them from the current data center to the new one.
  2. Approx 14 Hrs of downtime is expected during the migration exercise. Rest assured, we will keep you informed both before and after the migration.
  3. There will be NO changes to the IP addresses of your hosting accounts/servers once the migration is complete.

What Are The Things You Need To Prepare For?

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND all customers to run a full data backup of their services with us to their local desktop/laptop/external drive as an extra precaution for this major migration process.

Once again, we thank you for your wonderful support, understanding, and great patience.

Upon completion of this migration, we look forward to providing you with a better service and a better hosting experience with us.

If you have any concerns or questions about this migration exercise, please feel free to contact us at or call us at 079-3507-9700.
