I think we all knew this was coming. Vodafone made the call over a year ago now to close down their various email hosting services, (clear.net.nz, es.co.nz, ihug.co.nz, paradise.net.nz, pcconnect.co.nz, quik.co.nz, vodafone.co.nz, vodafone.net.nz, wave.co.nz) and now all Domain Name Registrations, Domain Name Hosting and Web Hosting will be unavailable from the 28th of February next year. This will apply to Vodafone, Clearnet and Paradise servers.
Vodafone have provided instructions for how affected customers should go about changing to a new service, and have arranged a discounted rate with a company called Freeparking for a limited time, though you may move to whichever provider you like. They also have a list of FAQs at the bottom of the page.
If you have not sorted this move out already we suggest you get onto it as soon as possible. Considering the downtime over the holidays there are less than two months left before the deadline. Remember businesses also have to get on top of Payday Filing of PAYE Employee Details (if they have not already done so) before April next year as well.
If you require any clarification or assistance with these changes please contact us on 07 827 7119 or come in and see us at 24B Dick Street. We will be open right up to Christmas Eve – our last day is the 24th of December, and will be opening again on the 7th of January.
