Is it bad to frequently change the IP of a website?

Old 08-26-2013, 10:28 AM Question In general, is it bad to migrate a website from a server to another one and assigning a new IP to it?

In other words, is there any special advantage for having a contant IP for a website in a long period of time?

It is bad from SEO, DNS records, browser caching, and so forth, if the IP of a website is changing?

Old 08-26-2013, 11:23 AM If the migration to another server is done how it should be, there should be no bad consequences at all. And about the IP change, as far as the content of your sire is available on the old IP address during the propagation of the new one, it will not effect the customers. You may change your backend server IP every few days/hours/minutes if you want.
Reply With Quote Old 08-26-2013, 07:17 PM This is anecdotal, but I found that after an IP change, some email messages sent from a mailing list on my new host went to my "spam" folder in Gmail whereas before they didn't. Easily fixed by dragging those messages to my inbox to re-educate the filter, but users who don't check their spam folder might be affected. But as I say this is anecdotal because I couldn't easily repeat the experiment to prove it.

All in all though, as long as enough preparation is done, and the transition is handled by an admin who knows what they are doing, it should not be a problem.

And I've commonly had the problem of adopting an IP on multiple blacklists or which has low reputation. mxtoolbox does a good job of checking the blacklists. If you're having an issue with a specific mail service you can usually get some diagnostics if they soft bounce your emails or if they have a way to look up reputation. I think hotmail has tools to do so and they're one of the nastiest about bouncing email. Proper SPF records / email authentication helps over time and I've been told helps when you change IPs.

Do know though that changing the IP of a domain does not always change your mx server. IE if I move a cpanel account to a dedicated IP in my configuration it will still use the main server IP to send outgoing mail. That is, however, another configuration option.

EDIT: I was thinking about dedicated hosting, for shared hosting the following would apply as well as the blacklist lookup: If you're moving to an entirely new server and your mail is consistently going to the spam folder it would probably mean that other sites on the host are spammers. It's tough to fix if you have a shared host unless they assign email to your IP and correctly set up rDNS.. I would venture to say that's rare. Know that you need to be looking up the blacklist for whatever IP outgoing mail is being sent from.

I just had an issue where exim started sending through IPv6 to gmail and everything went to the spam folder because it failed my SPF record.. So many variables with email.

Exchange SSL Certificates Problem

Hi All,

Good day!

Kindly help me regarding my email certificates error.

I always have to add the certificate everytime I go to our mail OWA, here is the link: https://mail.maritimeclinic.net/owa

Is this normal? or maybe I need to configure something?

As I see it I think this is normal because of the security purposes but maybe this is also a problem.

You can check my screenshot.

Thank you for your assistance.

Regards,
Sean

What's a normal load for a cPanel server?

Old Yesterday, 06:19 PM My backup host is currently running with a load at 245.27 "(8 cpus)", I would consider this to be very high for any of my servers. What load do you normally see on cPanel servers? Normal load on this host is about 3 - 10.

What's your CPU usage, wait%? Could be heavy IO or bottlenecked cpu. Looks like your memory is fine.

I've seen cloudlinux do something like that before, best to ask your host what's going on. If performance is still fine it might be nothing.

Thanks all.

Definitely a problem then. Time to ask your host what's up.
Old Yesterday, 06:38 PM Its indeed high load and could have degrade your website performance. You need to contact your host and ask them to check whats the reason.

A load of 245.27 would be really bad on an 8 CPU server. There was a build of CloudLinux at one point that showed really high load values due to a bug, but CLoudLinux fixed that bug quite a while ago. It is possible that your host has not kept CloudLinux fully updated. If that is the case, they should update the CloudLinux kernel and then reboot the server.
Old Yesterday, 11:22 PM This server should be a fake AMD 8 core processors sell by server4you. I believe its like Atom processor.
