If you follow FlockHosting on social networks you may have seen this beautiful thing:
Yes, I’ve decided to make a new FlockHosting shirt you can buy! Heck I loved it so much, I got me one already:
Now the design above is only available for nine days. That’s it. The company I’m doing this through makes it, so I don’t have any up-front costs or anything else -but- I am hoping to throw in a few designs for FlockHosting. Over the next six months will be ready for Customer Appreciation Day/Week/Month (whichever I can schedule out correctly!)
This t-shirt, of course, is not the first design FlockHosting has ever had. Yes I’ve been dabbled with the shirt world before:
Amazing right? This t-shirt is still up for sale on CafePress.com, however, trying something new, something hopefully I can keep up as the goal here is to help fund growth of Church Hosting.
We’ve reached SO many sites and helped many churches get online, operational but as always I want to grow more. – The previous fund’s folks have helped with has helped us reach two servers, over 400 churches, and I want-to-do-more!
So if you like, instead of using the old Crowd Funding Site (which is still fine! Some of you do!). However, if you want a comfy t-shirt (sweater coming soon) and soon some other fun hosting themed, as well as some cool designs I hope to work on, all proceeds will go towards Church Hosting growth!
I will be doing a fresh article this month on the new goals of Church Hosting, including some cool options for design, backup, etc. So stay tuned, another FlockUpdate will be heading your way!
Lastly, if you have a design idea, I’d love to post a shirt a month or every two months, if your design is selected? You get a free print! And I’ll even throw in a $15 Amazon Gift Card! So submit any design ideas you have, if you need the logo click here. Legal Jargon: You submit it, FlockHosting owns it, we can reproduce it as needed.
I noted in the most recent FlockUpdate that there would be a migration on Friday and it’s nearly here!
I’ve moved a few accounts already and they have gone over smoothly (Thanks to brave testers!) the only in-between issue at this point is the hostnames. Since “grace.flockhosting.com” and “church.flockhosting.com” – still point to the active servers, and since folks check their email this way – it creates an issue for making this move quickly.
If you manage your DNS – the new IP is: 18.104.22.168
Simply point your A records to this new IP where you used to have: 22.214.171.124
If you manage your DNS – the new IP is: 126.96.36.199
Simply point your A records to this new IP where you used to have: 188.8.131.52
For most of you thankfully it should not be an issue what-so-ever! Things are coming along awesomely, and performance has already improved since the cut-over as it stands, even with just a handful of accounts!
The official move is April 22, 2016 @ 10PM Pacific
Some news is coming on Monday! So stay tuned! A sneak peak may be posted on Facebook or Twitter, so if you aren’t following, please do!
