What is VLAN Migration and How Does it Affect You?

vlan migration

VLAN, or virtual local area network, is a logically segmented network that can only be accessed by your server(s). All new servers are deployed onto a client specific VLAN, with IPs that can only be used by other servers on that VLAN.

RIR, short for Regional Internet Registry, is responsible for allocating and assigning Internet resources like IP addresses. HostDime strives to use the space allocated to us by RIR in the most efficient and safe format. This includes migrating some clients servers to a private VLAN in our state-of-the-art data centers. Not only does this simplify management and reduce risk, it also helps assure future allocations from ARIN so that we can continue to be able to provide IPs to you. If you have been notified of this switch-over or would like to know more about VLANs, read on.
