  • For all assigned domains that use our nameservers, the IP addresses in the DNS Zone will be automatically adjusted.
  • For all assigned domains using external nameservers, you will need to adjust the IP addresses manually.
  • For all external applications, you will need to allow the new IP address in the application. For more information click here: Share IP of the web server

During the upgrade the websites and databases will be briefly unavailable. E-mail services are however not affected and keep running as usual. As soon as the upgrade is completed you will receive a notification by email.
