Due to ageing hardware and a need to upgrade, we will be performing a server migration on February 6th, 2014.  Aside from some slightly faster hardware, we’ll also be upgrading to PHP 5.4 and MySQL 5.  If you use these services, it’s recommended that you update any code that might be affected by these changes before the migration.  As with any server maintenance, there will be a period of downtime during the migration.

Nameservers might change for a handful of you as well, and we’ll be communicating the new nameservers to use as we get closer to the migration.  If you have any questions, please open a support ticket!

Correction: The original post stated that the migration would begin on February 8th.  The correct date is February 6th.  Sorry for any confusion!

Beginning on March 1st, 2013 the registration, renewal and transfer costs for domains with the .ME extension will be going up.  We have to make this adjustment due to rising costs for this particular domain.  Many of our domains are sold at a loss, and as such we have to occasionally make adjustments to our prices.

The adjustment is as follows:

Going forward from March 1st the price of registration will rise from $28.40 a year to $32.50 a year.  Anyone with existing renewals will not be affected if renewed before this change.

Again, the deadline for price is March 1st, 2013.  If there are any questions or concerns feel free to open a support ticket here:

SOPA Refugees, unite!

December 23rd, 2011 | Posted by Vertimyst in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Hi all,

Recently you may have heard that certain domain registrars are in support of SOPA.  For those of you who don’t know, SOPA (Stop Online Piracy Act) is a new bill introduced by the US government that effectively gives copyright holders the authority to pursue legal action against domain holders and site owners.  While control over intellectual properties is a good thing, SOPA gives copyright holders the power to have domains and content removed, at their discretion.

As a domain provider, we don’t support SOPA.  So we’re offering all SOPA refugees a chance to unite.  Starting now (until we decide to end the promotion) all domains are 25% off.  Remember, we also have free transfers, so if you’re looking to find a safe place for your domains, look no further.

To get your domains at 25% off, use the code ‘soparefugee‘ at checkout.

Together, we’ll show what we believe.  SOPA Refugees, unite!

(For for information on SOPA:

Update: Apparently, they’ve pulled their SOPA support.  We’re still running the sale though, so feel free to join us!

Christmas Promo!

December 19th, 2011 | Posted by Vertimyst in Uncategorized - (0 Comments)

Hey all,

As a special Christmas gift to you, we’re running a special promotion.  From now until January 2nd, we’re offering a free month of hosting.  This will apply to both new sign ups and existing clients.

For new clients, simply go here ( to place your order, and at checkout enter the code vschristmas.  Any hosting package in your cart will immediately get a 100% discount!

For existing customers, we’ve had to do things a bit differently.  All clients with hosting, either active or suspended, should now have enough credit in your account to pay for 1 month of hosting.   It will automatically be used the next time you pay your invoice.

We hope you enjoy your free month, and if you have any questions or issues, open a support ticket and we’ll help you out.   Have a great Christmas!

As you may have already noticed, I’ve been making some changes to this site.  The entire website has received a facelift, including our hosting packages.

The prices are the same, but now each of our packages (Basic, Standard and Business) have far more value than before.  For only $5/month you can get 1 GB web space and 10 GB bandwidth, plus all the features that come with any of our packages.  And that’s just the Basic account.  Upgrade to our Standard package and you get at least twice that.

We’re continuing to work on more improvements.  If you have a suggestion or have something you want that we don’t have, be sure to let us know by opening a support ticket or email us at

Finally, after months of work and planning, Vertimyst Solutions is officially launched.  And we’re excited to serve you.

Since we’re new, you may be wondering exactly what we’re doing.  We’re a new business dedicated to providing you with quality services, beginning with web hosting.  We believe that you don’t get what you pay for – you get quality service no matter how much you pay.  We believe you’re not just a customer, you’re a friend.  If you need help with anything, or think we could be doing a better job, let us know – and we’ll do our best and more to help you out and make you happy.

Vertimyst Solutions is based on community.  We welcome any ideas and suggestions you have.  You help us grow as a business.  If we’re not doing well, it’s your job to let us know.  We exist to serve you.

Since we’ve only just launched, some things are still a little rough around the edges.  We’re actively working to make this one of the best hosting experiences you’ll have, so please bear with us.
