We had the primary hard drive fail on a server, safelist3.zoothost.com.

To make matters worse, a vehicle had taken out a transformer at the datacenter and they lost power to the security desk and their front offices. While the power outage didn't affect the servers in any way, it hindered my access to the servers to replace the drive as the security systems in place for access were down.

I removed the backup drive from the server and put it in another active server (newer and faster) and restored the accounts from the failed server's backup drives.

As a result, the nameservers and IP addresses have changed and you should update them as soon as you can. If your domain is registered through me, I may have already updated them, but, you should check to make sure.

The new nameservers are:

ns1.safelist2.net
ns2.safelist2.net

For your reference, the old nameservers are SL5/SL6.zoothost.com

There were no backups from 3 June as the drive failed before then. The primary drive must have started failing during the backup on 2 June as some of the backups were incomplete or failed. As a result, there were a few backups that were good from 2 June and those were restored. The rest had valid backups from 1 June and were restored for that date.

If you run into any issues, please let me know.

Sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused.
