Terrahost are shutting down their Nigeria location
Lagos, Nigeria closing down
Nov 12, 2022
We are very sorry, but we are closing down our Nigeria location.
Its with the deepest regrets that we need to inform you that we have come to the decision to close down our Lagos location in Nigeria.
We have tried for a year to get the location into a profitable state, but we have unfortunately been unsuccessful at the endeavor. In the end the location is very expensive to run, and we had to decide between putting more equipment in there, or cut our losses and close it down.
Unfortunately we have chosen to close it down in favor of growing our other locations, and possibly open new ones in the future. We thank you for believing in the location and we value you very much as our client.
What happens now?
Nobody is losing their server, but it will be migrated to our Amsterdam location. Your IP address will not change, and your bandwidth upgraded to unmetered, like the other locations. If you have BGP sessions with us, these will be reissued once we've moved routing to Amsterdam.
The process of moving your server will happen over the next few of weeks. In the event we cannot online migrate you, it will happen night time CET. If you have no important data on your server, you can also reach out to have your server recreated in Amsterdam to speed up the process. Again we thank you for your continued support!

Personally I am unaffected, but I imagine this might make some people (like those seeking a global presence on the cheap) unhappy..
