  1. Sorry for the trouble! This can happen occasionally if the connection between our client area and your hosting server times out. The quickest way around this is to login to cPanel directly and add your domains through there instead of using the client area integration. If you continue to experience issues please contact our helpdesk through so they can investigate further. Thank you!
  2. This would be a violation of our affiliate TOS ( so any commissions earned by referring yourself would be considered invalid and you would not receive credit for those orders.
  3. Thanks for signing up with us! Account approval is not instant so there may be a delay up to 20 minutes after payment before your order is setup. If the account still isn't setup at that point it likely did not pass our fraud check and a ticket would have been opened on your account by our billing team. If you can please let me know your order or invoice # I can check the status of your order, feel free to PM me those details. Thanks!
  4. Hello! Dedicated IPs can be requested through a ticket with our sales team, you can open the ticket directly through your client area at We do require valid justification before we'll assign a dedicated IP so in your ticket please provide as much detail as possible explaining why your site requires the dedicated IP.
  5. Good morning! I'm sorry for the troubles you've faced. Based on the most recent update to ticket ID RCI-177-19253 you were able to resolve the issue. However if you continue to experience problems please let us know through the helpdesk. Thank you!
  6. Good afternoon! As long as your theme is compatible with WordPress it should run fine on our hosting. We do not limit or restrict the themes you can run on your sites.
  7. Thanks for checking out our hosting! It looks like your site is using cPanel so our team will be able to do a full migration (sites, files, databases, emails, etc.) from your current provider. All you'd need to do is submit a migration request ticket through our helpdesk once you've signed up

    I have a few potential ways to fix this but it depends on how you're opening tickets and then replying to those tickets / communicating with our team. If you could please open a ticket from your primary email address through and reference this forum thread / ask for it to be assigned to my (Brian F.) ticket queue I can gather some more details from you and we'll figure something out
  9. One thing to keep in mind is Linux will "allocate" memory and put it in cache to be used for programs/processes, so your control panel in the client area would show this memory as "used" when in reality it's only allocated but not actually in use by an active process. This helps performance quite a bit, however if you ever wanted to get an idea of your real/actual memory usage you'd be best to SSH into the server and use either the top -c or free -m command to get that output.
  10. This primarily depends on your sites traffic and resource requirements that you're hosting but without getting into specifics of your account the cloud servers will give you the potential for higher performance than being on cloud shared hosting. The main reason behind that is with full root access (and therefore the ability to modify the system however you choose) you can optimize the server specific to your sites / applications. That includes MySQL / webserver optimizations, installing custom software such as nginx for caching, or any other suggestions your developer/software maintainers may suggest. Cloud servers can also scale as needed so you can upgrade with the click of a button and double/triple your resources. This all depends on the resources your sites are currently using. The cloud web hosting plans come with 1 CPU, 1GB RAM, 5Mb/s disk IO, and 7 PHP processes. If your current usage at peak times is below that then you would not see a performance difference switching platforms. If you need more resources then your site would likely slow down once you start hitting any of those limits. If you want I can take a look at your usage and give a more detailed answer based on your specific services. If you'd like that please submit a ticket through while referencing this thread and ask for the ticket to be added to my (Brian F.) queue. I'll login to your server and we'll see if it's possible to safely move you onto our cloud web hosting platform.
  11. Glad to hear the migration went off without any major issues! The new cloud environment you're in is a huge upgrade compared to the baremetal setup from before. As for your concerns: That one I do not have an answer for. Would you mind submitting a ticket while referencing this thread and ask for it to be escalated and assign to Brian (me)? I'll work with our guys from there to get an answer / more details from your side. This is completely normal and to be expected. In fact this is a good sign! In your SSH client I assume you use either your domain name or the server name (old server) as the hostname to connect. Since both your domain and the old servers hostname are pointed to the new server IP it means you're connecting to a new machine entirely, but locally (on your computer / in your SSH client) it has the fingerprint for the old server. It prompted you when connecting because it detected this change and was warning you "Hey, someone may be trying to impersonate the server you're connecting to, are you sure this is safe?". This is known as a man-in-the-middle attack. You won't be prompted again now since you've accepted the new machines fingerprint. Completely fair point. Long and short of it this is due to how the migrations work, primarily because not every client in a shared server is on the same IP, so we're not able to send your shared IP in that template so we have to be generic. Not ideal, I completely get that, but it's the most efficient way to communicate with every client regardless of their individual setup (shared IP, dedicated IP, etc.).
  12. This is part of our account verification and is likely happening because you're not authorized so our team is following proper escalation procedure when we receive requests from unauthorized contacts. If you PM me the ticket ID I'll take care of it directly.
  13. I'm assuming this is a .uk / domain, in which case our IPS tag would be: NETEARTHONE If you run into any other issues I'd suggest opening a ticket through so we can discuss some details that we may not want to disclose publicly. Cheers!
  14. Per ticket ID PGI-840-86144 with our helpdesk this was likely due to our NYC maintenance. If you're still facing issues please follow up through our helpdesk and our team will be happy to get you sorted out. Thank you!
  15. Unfortunately this is not possible given the nature of this maintenance -- the network will be hard down so any requests to our NYC IPs won't be served. As a result the errors/messages shown when trying to reach the IPs will be out of our control (you'll get a timeout on ping, "can't reach this site" in browser, etc.). I agree it would be helpful but sadly it just isn't practical to setup in this case. As for notifications we will be relying on our status page at for that throughout the maintenance window.
