We’re migrating all live Foleon Docs to a new hosting provider: the Google Cloud Platform (GCP). The migration takes place on February 2nd, during which your Foleon Docs may be temporarily unavailable. There will be no further impact.
💡 This migration does not impact self-hosted Foleon Docs.
Visit the official Foleon status page for the exact time and maintenance duration — you can subscribe to receive live notifications. Please note that the Google Cloud Platform is already a Foleon sub-processor and that all hosting locations will remain the same.
This migration comes with several impactful improvements:
With premier hosting and fail-over mechanisms, we’ll limit the chance of downtime in case of server crashes.
We’re improving security with enterprise-grade built-in defenses against DDoS and other attacks.
On top of this, there will also be some other changes:
When you delete a live Foleon Doc, it will also be taken offline automatically.
We’ll start supporting IP whitelisting for custom domains. Read more about setting up access control.
If you change your domain setup in the project settings, you’ll no longer have to republish all Docs in that project. Their URLs will update automatically, and the old version will redirect to the new URLs.
If you’re hosting Foleon Docs on a custom (sub)domain without www., we’ll automatically redirect traffic to your domain. For example, if you’re publishing on example.com, www.example.com will also work.
We’ll no longer support domains that include an underscore.
This migration is part of a larger architectural change we’ve been working on behind the scenes. You’ll hear more about it in the coming months.
