[Completed] UPS service work


The maintenance work was undertaken with no issues.


We apologise for the lack of notice.

The main UPS is being serviced today. We expect no down-time or service issues.

COMPLETED: – shared hosting server downtime 18th Aug

[UPDATE] The server move was completed successfully. We believe that all sites are functioning correctly. However, if you think your site has a problem, please email in the normal manner.

[PLANNED WORK] We are seeing a sudden large number of hard drive errors indicating a possible near-term failure on this server which hosts a small number of shared websites. To ensure that this doesn’t cause problems later, we have decided to move this server to a new VM after normal business hours today unless the error rate increases and we need to move more quickly. Down-time of no more than an hour should be expected. We apologise for the short-notice.
