Closure Schedule

When will my servers go away?

We will be shutting down servers on December 8th and December 29th. Please see the groups below to determine which of these dates your server(s) will be terminated.

To find your server's location, you can check the "Location" field in Prisma on your server's Overview page. If you have an Ashburn server, you can find its node ID by checking the FTP access information (under Advanced < FTP Access) for "hostname" (e.g. "ash13.cubed.host" would be node ash13).

To collect your files, we strongly recommend using FTP due to some potential technical limitations.
This guide can help: How do I use WinSCP?
If you are on MacOS, please see this guide instead: How do I use FileZilla?

If you are transferring to another game server provider, such as Nodecraft, they may offer to transfer your files on your behalf. It is normal for hosts to request your FTP details from CubedHost in order to transfer your files.

GSPs/Providers - please read: Please feel free to create a Prisma account and ask our customers to add your company account to the service; this will grant FTP access to the server without asking for the user's credentials. Customers can add the appropriate email to their server via the Advanced < Manage Users modal in Prisma. Link this guide for more guidance.
For file transfers via FTP, the username format is [email protected][serverid]; e.g., [email protected] The password for FTP is your account's password. You may use the server's IP address to connect to FTP.
