    CloudFlare has been installed on all 3 servers to block bot traffic. It needs to be activated on a per-site basis. Any site using it also has to set up a redirect. The full instructions are here:

    The upgrades have been complete. 2GB were added. The 'Agrestic' server now has 7GB of RAM and a bigger backup drive.

    Two weeks ago a secondary hard drive was also added to the 'Stuff' server and all of the backups were copied to it. There will be no hard drive upgrade for the 'Centurion' server because it already has a big enough primary drive.

    The 'Stuff' server has problems with sectors on the hard drive. The server will go down in 1 hour at 11:30 a.m. EST and all of the data will be copied to a new drive. Expect 2 to 3 hours of downtime while the transfer is in progress.

    Where things stand, all servers are either Core i7 QuadCore or Dual Xeon OctCore.

    Happy new year, everyone!

    This announcement applies to anyone who has hosted at Vectro / x Proxy Host for 2 years or longer. There will be a large DNS update happening today. All references to the old xname.org secondary DNS service will be removed from the zone data. All secondary entries are going to be removed from the xname.org servers. Please do a WHOIS lookup of your domains hosting at Vectro / x Proxy Host to see if your secondary nameserver is ns0.xname.org and change it if necessary.

    These are the only two DNS servers which should be uses:

    ns.vectro.com
    ns2.vectro.com
