Host change:

We have changed hosts since today, now this will solve the lag / connection / timed out issues, but has a small downside for practice. As the current practice setup is all about CPU power and this hosts cpu is made for having a lot of servers, and not having a few powerful ones it could lag spike a bit during the day. This will be fixed in the next...

Okay now for coldnetwork 2.0, we've been through a lot the last few months as many of you probably have noticed, and now it's time for me to pay you guys back. May will be dedicated to revamping the network, doing giveaways, events, revamps, sales whatever brings you guys joy. I'm not 100% sure yet what the planning will be as to be honest, we haven't really started on this but I'll get it done don't worry.

INFO May
Dear Community,

I actually thought the issue was solved, but it litterly started happening today again...
I was only gonna post this if the issue was solved, but I'm still gonna post it because many people are waiting.

Okay so basically, if the issue is fixed before the 1st of may, I'll be turning may in to a coldnetwork 2.0.
We'll be revamping all servers, and possibly release opfactions and hcfactions all in may, now I'm not sure if this is the smartest move but you guys deserve it.

More info on this following soon, sorry for the lack of updates but you all probably know why that is.. if not, read my latest 2 announcements!

I really plan on resolving this issue this week, a fun fact is is that I contacted the host monday (Ticket + Call) (again, I contacted them before) and haven't heard a single thing, so pray for me and I'll keep calling them until this is solved!
IMPORTANT The issues
Dear community,

The last 3 weeks have been an absolute nightmare, after switching servers it'd be cheaper for me for better performance.

So there I was, just spending hours to transfer everything, and then later on we had serious crash issues. Which at first I really didn't know the cause of, but then we did find the cause, but we didn't know if the issue had to do with me or with the host, so I continued investigating etc etc. Then I was 99% sure it was the host so I decided to buy 2 other servers (I always have 2 dedicated servers for cold). But this didn't solve the issue, now there is still a slight chance that something's wrong with the host but I highly doubt it. So I'm kinda where I started now, I really don't know what is causing it but all I know is is that all servers just lose all connection for some reason.

I'm really trying to get this as it was but I just don't know what to do anymore, I really hope the host can help me with this otherwise I'm really doubting I'll ever fix this.
Dear Community,

After I switched hosts we found out we were having serious crash issues, even some issues regarding storage of files which caused a needed rollback which you see happened when logging in.

This is the story: I bought 2 new dedicated servers, they combined have 8 cores (16 threads ofc xd) 4-4.4GHz each which should have serious performance. Which it does, it runs amazing until we saw we had crash issues, which I thought was maybe something caused by the new panel which is pretty advanced and needs a lot of programs. So I decided to reinstall everything yesterday so going back to my old panel. But after doing that we still have the crashing issues (Timed Out). So all that's left to do for me is contact our hosting because now I'm 99% sure it's some problem of them and not us.

This all costed me quite some time which delayed me from updates, sorry.

I hope you all understand the maintenance downtime and lack of updates now,

nick
