I got an email from DreamHost that says:
[quote]Due to space and power constraints in our primary datacenter we are moving
the entire shared cluster “spacey” to our LAX facility at 10:00PM PST (GMT
- 8), two weeks from today, Friday, November 30th 2007. All webservers,
mail servers, file servers, and MySQL servers in the spacey cluster will
be unreachable during the move, which we expect to take approximately 8 hours.[/quote]
Is it possible to upload a small temporary page for my visitors to see during the downtime so they’ll know what’s going on and won’t panic?
8 hours is quite a long downtime. Is DreamHost going to compensate me for this downtime? I’m paying $8.95 per month for my hosting, so if I did the math right, they owe me $0.10.
