【热门收购】FlipHost被Query Foundry收购

最近FlipHost发布公告,声明目前品牌已经被Query Foundry, LLC收购,该收购者同时也是CloudShards的母公司。FlipHost最早只是HostGator的分销商,后来发展成为独立的VPS服务商,第一次出现在微魔部落是在2012年7月份,当时的价格即使现在来看也很有竞争力(查看)。近期的公告表示FlipHost依然会继续以独立的品牌运营,但是将更加专注于SSD产品线。此次收购影响包括:

  • IP地址改为ARIN,替代原有的分销;
  • 硬件由租用改为自有;
  • 网络改为自有(提高自己控制的权限)
  • 机械硬盘用户将迁移到CloudShards,以保证FlipHost专注于SSD产品线

另外大家可能比较关注的是价格方面,官方表示,续费的价格将不会改变。

同时官方声称并购后将有以下提升:

  • 增加独立服务器业务
  • 托管业务
  • 达拉斯机房增添KVM产品线
  • 洛杉矶机房增添OpenVZ产品线
  • Cloudshards客服团队将协助FlipHost
  • 增添ipv6支持
  • 为所有ip增添自动rDNSB

另外一起收购案发生在今年的7月份,SwiftVM被SupremeBytes收购,当时因为微魔不常关注自己的Gmail,导致迁移的过程并不顺利,以后微魔会定期发布这些收购消息。

Hello ,

Today is a big day. Today I am announcing that Fliphost has been acquired by Query Foundry, LLC, the company behind Cloud Shards. This is great news. When I started Fliphost over two years ago I never expected it to grow this well and last this long. Here I am two years later, going from a single shared reseller account with Hostgator to having over ten nodes in three locations. Over the years we have introduced numerous free extras including backups, DNS, offloaded SQL and many other features; but we can do more. In the hands of Query Foundry, LLC, Fliphost will grow and improve beyond what alone it could never do. Fliphost is to remain a separate brand and to focus on SSD and high storage servers.

 

What will change:

IP addresses will be changed to owned ARIN allocations instead of leased IPs
Switch from rented hardware to owned hardware.
Change to own network (Higher control)
OpenVZ HDD users (Not Storage servers) will move to the Cloud Shards brand to have Fliphost focus on SSD.

What will not change:

Fliphost will remain a separate brand
Pricing will not change
Quality of service will not decrease
I will be remaining with Fliphost (and also part of the Cloud Shards team)

What will improve:

Addition of dedicated server services
Addition of colocation services
Bringing KVM to Dallas
Bringing OpenVZ to LA
Improved support (Cloud Shards team will helping out with Fliphost)
IPv6 addresses will be offered in all locations
Automatic RDNS for all IPs

Migrations to owned hardware and IPs:

New Jersey Storage users will remain as is until further notice. No migrations are planned and it is business as usual there.

LA SSD KVM users will be migrated to new colocated owned hardware. This will be scheduled sometime after the Dallas migrations have happened, most likely sometime in Q1 2014. For now, it is business as usual.

Dallas OpenVZ HDD (Not storage servers) users will be transferred across to Cloud Shards' client system. The easiest way to handle this is to register at https://www.cloudshards.com/clientarea.phpwith the same details and request a migration of your services. Users will be given 2 weeks from this announcement, 11/13/13, to voluntarily organize the move. After that, migrations will be scheduled with each customer.

Dallas OpenVZ SSD users will be migrated to new colocated owned hardware remaining under the Fliphost brand.

Minecraft users will be moved to new IPs and owned hardware in the coming weeks.

Paypal subscriptions:

If you currently have an automatic payment/subscription setup in Paypal to automatically make your payments every month it has been canceled. On your next invoice you will have to pay manually. At that time you can either make manual payments from then on or setup a new subscription.

Final note:

Change is not bad. Even though the structure of Fliphost will be changing, the commitment to quality services and support will not. I started Fliphost with the goal of providing better hosting than I was receiving and that has not and will not change.

 

If you have any questions regarding this announcement please do not hesitate to open a support ticket in the client area, http://sales.fliphost.net/clientarea.php, or you may personally email me at:alex@fliphost.net.

 

"To a bright and beautiful future!"

  1. Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to ask!
