To better service our European customers, we’ve added new servers located in the United Kingdom.
We understand that network reliability is essential to your business. Once fully migrated, European customers should see (even) faster response times when using Checkfront.
The new hosting facility is located in London England at Telecity Group’s state-of-the-art Powergate facility (tour) with peering to many well connected providers including Deutsche Telekom, Interoute, Level3, PCCW-BTN, Telia and Tiscali.
Existing European customers will be migrated from the US to the new UK data center within the coming days. Please note there should be little to no interruption in service, however everyone will be given a 24 hour notice before the move is made. If you are in Europe but would like to continue to be hosted out of the US, please file a support ticket.
Note: you can determine what data center you are in by logging into your Checkfront console and going to Manage / System.
For customers located within the United Kingdom, you’ll soon notice your url change from yourid.checkfront.com to yourid.checkfront.co.uk. Your checkfront.com domain will forward indefinitely and no changes should be necessary on your end (exept for maybe your bookmarks!).
If you have any questions feel free to contact us.
