Distrubution release support (CentOS4/Debian 5)

Linux distributions keep moving forwards, and as they progress older releases stop receiving security patches or updates. As part of our commitment to maintaining reliable and safe services, we would like to highlight the following announcements...

CentOS-4 End Of Life

The CentOS-4 distribution (current version 4.9) will be at End of Life on February 29, 2012.

Notification of end-of-life for Debian oldstable

The Debian project released Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 alias "squeeze" on the 6th of February 2011 ... Hence, the security support for the old release of 5.0 is going to end on the 6th of February 2012 as previously announced.

And in related news CentOS 5 and CentOS 6 support extended by 3 years

We have a selection of upgrade guides available for some distributions

Anyone wishing to upgrade older installations are encouraged to contact us with questions via a support ticket
