I received the ofllowing E-mail from my host, Sleek Servers:
Unfortunately we will be closing down the Chicago location because it has become too costly for us and we cannot manage / repair our equipment without paying them an additional fee. IF we were charging more for our game servers than this wouldn't be a problem. Unfortunately we tried charging more for premium locations without success. The Chicago location has been great, but simply put, we are not making enough money to justify the support and labor we put into it. We have also been running into hardware issues with one of our game server machines. We want to maintain a high up time with our systems and we cannot repair them quickly when they go down.
We will need to transfer your game server to one of our other available locations (Atlanta, Kansas City, or Los Angeles). Kansas City is within the same region as Chicago and it would probably be the best choice for your move. Unfortunately we cannot move IP's so your IP will change. Please submit a support ticket when you're ready for the move and be sure to specify what location you would like to move to. Lately because of the hardware issues we may or may not be able to move your game server. IF the system goes down then we may have to create a new server for you.
IMPORTANT: Minecraft users can only move to Kansas City. However we cannot transfer your maps because TCAdmin has troubles with it. HOWEVER you can! You can download your map folder using FTP or you can zip it up first and then download it. We ask that you open a support ticket when you're ready for your replacement Kansas City server. Chicago servers will remain online until June 30th 2011. IF you do not contact us for a replacement server in time we can still create one for you, however you will not have access to your old server files.
We apologize for any inconveniences this may have caused. The Chicago location has simply become too costly for us.
If you have any questions, please open a support ticket!
So I figured, since the server is getting a new name, I should try getting a hostname to work So it will either be: ariyun.no-ip.org, or ariyun.co.cc, if I can make that work. How does that sound?
On a second note, I have a very complicated plan, that I hope to activate soon. Warning the following image, is extremely complicated!!!(badjoke):
