SinoHosting is happy to announce the addition of a new location to its international web hosting services. Indeed, starting immediately, we are offering Korea-based web hosting services. The infrastructure (Linux/cPanel) and service plans are the same as our international hosting plans in Hong Kong, Singapore, the US and Europe.
Hosting in Korea is suitable for site owners who are targeting users in Beijing, Tianjin, and the North East of China: Liaoning, Heilongjiang, Jilin, even down to Shandong). Ping time from Korea is faster than Hong Kong for computers accessing from these regions.
SinoHosting servers are colocated in a first tier datacenter in Seoul, South Korea. Our Korean hosting services are currently limited to shared hosting, as such we are unable to provide VPS or dedicated servers in Korea.
As always, SinoHosting is a pioneer in being the first international host in China to offer web hosting services on Korean servers.
To sign up for this service, please go to our international hosting page.

We have been notified of a large scale migration at the Unicom DC we currently use for our shanghai.sinohosting.net server. Due to the potential risk of data failure on top of the expected downtime, we have decided to ensure the availability of our clients sites to move all websites on that server to a new server at another Unicom datacenter in Shanghai.
We apologize for the short notice as the decision had been taken by Unicom withoutnotifying us. The migration is in process and should be completed by tomorrow. Most clients who have their domains with us or use our nameservers will not need to do anything. Clients who manage their domains and use third party DNS however will need to update manually their records to point to the new IP address. We will be opening a support ticket to those clients with instructions about IP change, once their account is migrated to the new server.
If you experience any issue after the server change either with your website or your emails, please submit a support ticket with our technical support team at firstname.lastname@example.org for immediate assistance.
