Investigating – We are currently experiencing some network connectivity issues on our shared hosting platform. Engineers are investigating and we will update you as soon as possible. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
We are aware of a failure affecting some client website, email and our remote support tools. Services have largely been restored although there are some remaining issues due to server problem on restart which we are working on.
The underlying problem is a third party supplier who suffered a power failure but this appears to have impacted some of their redundant fail-over systems across multiple sites. Once their engineers have completed repairs and submitted reports we will review any lessons to be learned to remove any single point of failure.
Apologies if you have been affected by this issue.
We are receiving reports of delayed email . Investigations have shown the problem to be with an external supplier who has now put in a temporary fix. We will shortly start to release queued email and no email will have been lost.
We apologise for any inconvenience. A complaint will be raised once service levels return to normal.
Just to confirm that service was restored some 50 mins after the incident started. We have been gradually releasing the queued email since then and that process is now virtually complete. Apologies once again for the inconvenience.
We are aware of an issue affecting email flow through our spam filter system. A fix has been put in place and the problem should be resolved shortly. Apologies for any inconvenience.
