As a website developer, we have to serve our webpages from somewhere. There are many options available but we went with a VPS solution which stands for Virtual Private Server. We have been very lucky for many years with the provider we had chosen, URPad, at https://urpad.net.
Unfortunately, sometimes good things must come to and end. We received the following email from UrPad.net earlier this week:
Dear Al Paul,
This is a reminder that on Aug 22nd we will no longer be providing hosting or VPS services. If you have not already done so, we advise preparing to move your VPS and/or hosting account away from our network.
As mentioned in our last email, we have set up a migration agreement with Warpline Hosting (https://my.warpline.com/aff.php?aff=96)
This will allow you to sign up for hosting services with them, and allow for the migration of your data to them. Further details on their pricing plans can be found here: https://my.warpline.com/aff.php?aff=96
Once you have signed up for an account with Warpline, please let us know the email address used for signup, and we will ensure your data is transferred to Warpline with minimal interruption of service. This move would require an IP change.
You are of course more than welcome to use any hosting provider you wish; however, we would not be able to facilitate migration of your data or content. We anticipate shutdown of service on or shortly after Aug 22nd.

We have had a very good experience with them over the past many years. Great uptime, great website responses, overall great experience.
So there was a slight interruption last night as we migrated our website away from URPad.net. Thanks for all the great years of service URPad.Net, we had a great run together....you will be missed.
