We have some important updates regarding Blanq’s backend infrastructure to improve reliability and security.
New IP address
We have moved to a new IP address 126.96.36.199 which means in your DNS settings, you would need to update your current A record from 188.8.131.52 to 184.108.40.206 for the domain that you have already added in the dashboard.
We will continue to support the old IP address until 20th of September 2020. This is one time and final exercise on your end. The IP address will not change in the future.
Cname support added
You can now add CNAME instead of using IP address 220.127.116.11 if you prefer CNAME for your domain. Just create a new CNAME record and use cname.blanq.io. in the Value field and @ in Host field.
Give us a few hours to verify your DNS changes and once verified, we will send you an email.
Better database reliability and security
Over the weekend, we migrated our entire database to DigitalOcean’s Managed database service thereby ensuring a more reliable and secure application. You will notice slightly better performance with this change.
