I saw you blog post, can you tell how much time we have until the complete shutdown? We have a mobile app that is pointing to the apphb.com domain.
Do you have a deathline?
Any migration guide to other service?

Yes the service will be shut down on December 5th (UTC time), so December 4th should be the deadline to avoid downtime.
Does your mobile application have a reference to the "your-app.apphb.com" hostname hardcoded? If it does I'd highly recommend you update it to use a domain you control using a CNAME that points to your apphb.com subdomain (e.g. a CNAME from
your-app.apphb.com) as a first step. Make sure to also add
your-app.your-domain.comon the Hostnames page for your AppHarbor application so it'll respond to those requests.
This way your users will have more time to update your mobile app while you find a new service provider and prepare the migration. You can then switch over to the new hosting provider at the DNS level simply by updating the
your-app.your-domain.comDNS record when you're ready to migrate, and your users can continue to use your app with minimal interruption.
I'm compiling a list of helpful resources for migrating apps to alternative services (such as AWS and Azure) and should have that ready soon. In the meantime you might want to check out this guide to deploy .NET apps on AWS Elastic Beanstalk or this one for Azure (which you can also deploy using a local git repository as described here).

Just for ask, I have been seeing some trouble with our API and Redis Cache, is there something related with AppHarbor shutdown?

No there are no known issues at this time. I'll close this ticket for now, but feel free to open a new one if you're still experiencing issues with your app!

This comment was split into a new private discussion: AppHarbor shutdown
Hi Rune, we created a CNAME record from our domain to the app.hb domain, the redirection works well but we need certificate that can validate both domain, since we need to be able to access api.apphb.com and api.ournewdomain.com anb both under https
