What is this?

FellowSites is a co-operative web hosting provider affectionately dubbed a “fellowship of websites.” It started in 2003 when a small group of friends pooled their resources to lower their monthly hosting costs.

Fellowsites acquired by Goleman Networks, Inc.

Posted on March 24, 2011 by Cory Goleman

Goleman Networks, a web hosting and web development company located in Salt Lake City, UT, acquired all Fellowsites assets and customers on January 31, 2011.  We are in the process of stabilizing the hosting server the fellowsites.org site and all Fellowsites customer sites are currently hosted on.  Once this is complete we will begin migrating all Fellowsites customer accounts to a new server on our hosting cluster to provide higher uptime and performance.

Goleman Networks was founded in 2002 to provide website hosting and network management services to a handful of clients that I had previously personally been employed by.  Since then the company has grown and expanded to provide a wide range of hosting services including shared hosting, reseller hosting, virtual servers, cloud services, dedicated servers, enterprise email hosting, email filtering, domain name registration, ssl certificates and more to clients across the United States and around the globe.

I personally want to take a moment to welcome all former FellowSites customers to Goleman Networks.  I worked closely with and know the prior owner, Joey Day, over the past six plus years as he grew FellowSites from a small group of friends looking to lower their monthly hosting bill to the community of users it is today.  Joey has taken a unique approach to how web hosting is thought of and billed, an approach that I intend to continue as FellowSites is folded into the Goleman Networks hosting portfolio.  There will be some changes as this acquisition is completed in the coming weeks, these will be administrative necessities such as where PayPal payments are sent and how new accounts are provisioned, but for the most part FellowSites will continue to operate the way it has in the past.

I will be sending an email out to all current fellows within the next few days detailing changes to billing and support along with more information about Goleman Networks.  If you have any questions or concerns in the interim please post a response to this post or contact me through the regular FellowSites contact form, http://www.fellowsites.org/contact

Kind regards,

Cory B. Goleman
President

Maintenance Summary:

Periodically our datacenter providers must perform maintenance on the network systems in order to keep them operating optimally. This maintenance window has been planned for several months; however an issue with a line card on the dar1.orm-ut router has forced the maintenance window to be moved up.

During this 4 hour maintenance window, network engineers plan to perform the following tasks:

  1. Replace line card 2 on dar1.orm-ut
  2. Upgrade line card 1 on dar1.orm-ut
  3. Upgrade firmware on dar1.orm-ut
  4. Upgrade firmware on dar2.orm-ut
  5. Decommission br1.orm-ut
  6. Decommission cr1.slc-ut
  7. Install additional line card on dar1.slc-ut
  8. Install additional line card on dar2.slc-ut
  9. Upgrade firmware on dar1.slc-ut
  10. Upgrade firmware on dar2.slc-ut

Service Impact:

  • Intermittent public network connectivity, internal or private VLAN connections will be unaffected.
  • Multiple 1-180 second outages for customers on redundant connections.
  • Multiple 5-10 minute outages for customers on single connections.
  • Multiple interface resets.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Please contact us with any questions or concerns.
