Linux Server Upgrade & Migration – Shared Server and Reseller Servers 22nd Aug 2022
We would like to inform you that your websites will be Migrated to a New server.
The Upgrade and Migration is absolutely necessary to ensure that your website/ application runs smoothly in the long run and avoid downtimes. We will be moving you to a high end infrastructure that will ease out our current challenges. We have scheduled the shared server migration to new hardware to improve the performance and stability.
We assure you that our team will take complete backup and facilitate a smooth migration process. Your co operation and support is highly appreciated for us to complete this task. You may experience a small downtime only at the period of switching to the new DNS and during DNS propagation to reflect globally. However, we will try our best to mitigate the same as much as possible.
On completion of the migration, we will share the new IP details. Please ask your Domain Registrar (where you bought the domain) to help you implement the correct A and CNAME records according to the New Server DNS Settings (below), or email us the login information for your domain registrar or host account and we will make the necessary changes.
Looking forward to your support

Signup for Backup Service with hostcats.com 26th Apr 2022
Hopefully you’re already in the 80% of people who know to keep a computer backup (if not, right now is a good time to start). Too many computer owners have learned the hard way how important it is to create regular backups.
But do you do the same for your website?
Technology may be capable of amazing things, but it’s still fallible. And no one wants to risk losing all your digital files in a moment.
Think about the hard work you put into creating your website. Wouldn’t losing everything you’ve created be a significant loss? Well, a website is at least as vulnerable to threats as a computer is.
What Is a Website Backup Service?
A website backup is a copy of all of your website data. What the backup storage encompasses will depend upon your online backup provider. As a general rule of thumb, the more data that’s included in the data backup, the better.
This is especially the case if your website runs on any coding platform like WordPress, HTML, PHP or opensource etc, where you’ll need all of your site’s files, content, media, and databases to get it up and running again.
Datacenter – Physical Server Migration 8th Nov 2021
The DC has scheduled “physical server migration” where you are hosted in our Pune Datacenter in Hinjewadi. Unfortunately, this data center is now full with no possibility for expansion. Due to this, our data center operator has built a new facility in Hinjewadi (1 km away) and has asked us to migrate the servers physically to the new data center.
We will need at least 2 hours to move the servers from DC1 to DC2.
So We are scheduling physical server migration from the old DC to the new DC of the below server on 10th Nov 2021 between 2 AM to 6 AM IST.

New Cpanel Pricing & Alternate Option 26th Jul 2019
There was an Important Announcement from Cpanel about its control panel licensing was released a few days back. On June 27th, 2019 cPanel announced a massive pricing increase that will apply to all partners. They claimed that the pricing has not changed in 20 years and that a price increase is long overdue. So they have changed its pricing model from per-server pricing to a per-account model. Surely, cPanel has dropped a bombshell on its customers with a price hike for its services that have left some running for the door marked exit.
What do I do next?
Hostcats is here to help; We already foresaw what the Hosting Industries will look forward to if they cannot digest this increase in the price of the cPanel, when they first announced the price changes.
