The game servers (game.arelith.com) and the web server (arelith.com) will be unreachable tomorrow morning for the EE migration. The migration is expected to take between four and five hours. After the migration has concluded, the 1.69 servers will cease to operate except for Fixed Level which will remain reachable at fl.arelith.com.

As we will be changing DNS settings for the arelith.com domain, it may take a few hours for your internet connection to recognise a change has occurred and forward you to the new server. This link may help if everything seems to be up but the website doesn't work for you: https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html.

As questions have been raised on what the second half of Liareth's post meant, a translation has been given:

Website names like "arelith.com" work by translating that name into a number called an IP address. Since arelith.com is moving to a new server, that IP address will change, but the name will remain the same. To save time, your computer may remember that name to IP address translation in what's called the DNS Cache. If you find yourself unable to access arelith.com tomorrow after everything is back up, you may need to Flush your DNS cache. Please see this link for instructions on how to do so: https://www.whatsmydns.net/flush-dns.html

If there are any further questions, please feel free to direct them to the team.

The migration has been completed and the servers are now up. Various teething issues and instability is to be expected over the coming days.

Big thanks to DM Apollo who made us a brand new portal.
