EasyNetSites is moving our data files on Tuesday, August 10 to a new server as part of their infrastructure upgrade. The site will still be available for members but no one should do, e.g. renewals after midnight 8/9 to midnight 8/11. Any transactions would not be picked up by them if it happens in that window of time.
