Beginning May 15th, 2012, we will begin migrating customers to the current (dv) 4.0 Servers and start the End of Life process for (dv) 3.0 and 3.5. In February 2011, we launched the (dv) 4.0 service, with all new software and Plesk Control Panel. As we make new and exciting updates to the (dv) 4.0, it’s time to upgrade and remove out of date services.
What does this mean to me?
We are encouraging all of our customers to self-migrate to the newer (dv) 4.0. If you decide that you do not want to migrate your own content, we will be performing basic migrations using the Parallels Plesk Migration Manager. For most of our customers, this will be sufficient. However, for all customers with customizations outside of Plesk, it could cause some issues. If you have customized your server, we strongly recommend that you self-migrate.

What is different in (dv) 4.0?
For those customers not familiar with the new (dv) 4.0 line, here are some of the new, exciting features in Plesk 10 that were not available on the (dv) 3.0 and 3.5:
- Plesk Web Presence Builder – Build websites and manage your social media presence, all from Plesk!
- SNI Support – Save money by hosting multiple SSL-enabled websites on one IP.
- Plesk Mobile Apps – Manage and monitor your server from your smartphone.
- Better, Faster Scaling – Go from 512MB of RAM to 16G, all from your AccountCenter.
These features, plus updated versions of software make the (dv) 4.0 better than ever for the same price!
When will I be automatically migrated?
Given the number of services to be migrated, we don’t have specific dates to give to everyone. Once your specific server has been scheduled for migration, you will be notified.
