Your question doesn't appear to be on topic at Server Fault, as you do not seem to be the server administrator of either server. In this case, you may do better at our sister site Pro Webmasters. When you go, be sure to add additional details about the web hosting providers you are using, such as OS, control panels, and any other information that may help others understand your environment and answer your question. – Michael Hampton Jan 1 '13 at 22:54
