Network Maintenance – January 6

This is to inform Feedity users that our service provider will be performing an upgrade to the firewalls. The upgrade is scheduled for: Tuesday, January 6, 2009 – 8:00 pm to 10:00 pm Pacific time.

During this time our application service will remain online, but users may experience periodic, intermittent loss of connection.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Database Maintenance

Due to database maintenance work in progress, creation of new feeds through the Feed Builder and user registration will be temporarily unavailable. Existing members will still be able to login to their account, and existing feeds will be generated and delivered as normal.

Our apologies for any inconvenience caused. We’ll post an update and resume our full services very soon.

Update: Database maintenance work has been completed. All features are functional now.

Unexpected Downtime

We are facing an outage at our host data centre in NYC, due to which the Feedity website is currently down.

The downtime is related to a switch issue. At this time we’re waiting for the data center to properly configure the new switch since there are special requirements for the cluster’s fail-over system to work.

Things should be up and running pretty soon!

Update: Service is up and running. Our apologies to all Feedity users for this unexpected downtime.

Feedity 2.0

It’s been a while since I’ve posted an update, but that’s simply because we have been considering a solid rearchitecture initiative for Feedity. We have been working hard to improve the service quality and our data delivery platform, and very soon we’ll be launching a new and improved version of Feedity. We are happy to announce the upcoming launch of Feedity version 2.0. The release is scheduled for 6th May 2008.

Among other new features, the new version provides better feed management capabilities, and improved performance through internal modules like caching, load-balancing etc.

The new version, however, has an impact on current RSS feeds. The new version will generate shorter feed URL’s, different from the current feed URL’s. The new shorter URL’s can have an impact on your Feedity-generated feeds, because you will have to update your feed URL’s to the new URL’s. The old feed URL’s will continue to work for the next few weeks, but we highly recommend you to update your feeds as soon as possible.

To simplify the update process, please follow three easy steps below:

1. Once the new version of Feedity is launched, you’ll see a registration link on the website. Register for a new free account.

2. Once you are registered and logged-in, please recreate your existing feeds in your account. If you face any trouble recreating your old feeds, then email us the list of all the old feeds you have, along with your account email address and password, and we’ll recreate the feeds in your account on your behalf. Thereafter, you can change your account password for better security.

3. IMPORTANT: If you are a Premium or Pro plan subscriber, then email us your account email address (not the password), so that we can manually upgrade your new account, since you’ve already paid for it. You can check your current plan details in your account profile.

We hope that you enjoy using the new version of Feedity, and rest assured, we are here to assist you with your questions. Please review our new version, and don’t hesitate to share your feedback with us.

Last but not least, we would like to thank all the users who have contributed to our service through their feedback or donations.
