scheduled maintenance “NYC1 Network Maintenance 2019-12-12 09:00 UTC”

If you have VPS or dedicated web hosting server with, they just sent a message for a scheduled maintenance at one of their datacenter facilities below. is pretty good, they do verification of all of their customers before allowing an account to be created, sort of like a KYC verification, which is good, this is to prevent illegal activities taking advantage of the servers for illegal activities.

During the above window, the networking team will be making changes to our core networking equipment to improve performance and reliability for our NYC1 location

Expected Impact:

There may be a few minutes of increased latency as well as small amounts of packet loss while we shift traffic to redundant devices. We will endeavour to keep this to a minimum for the duration of the change.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to us by replying to this email or opening up a ticket on your account.

Thank you,

DigitalOcean Networking Team
