As of today, I have successfully installed a dedicated router machine. This also serves as a firewall appliance. I have performed all testing and configuration and so far, everything looks good.
The only downtime the website suffered was yesterday’s afternoon until almost 12AM while the router machine was being installed.
The next step is to do the server migration. This is already happening behind the scene and will be done in steps to prevent taking the site down for an extended period. This should be done during this weekend or the first few days of the next week.
I will post another update as soon as this process is completed.
