Resolved – Issues Accessing Customer Websites and E-mail Services

Unfortunately we have been experiencing problems with the Fasthosts platform. Planned maintenance is being carried out on the Fasthosts Servers from the 10th October to the early hours of 11th October.

This means customers may experience issues connecting to their websites or e-mail services. Fortunately this is only temporary and downtime should be kept to a minimum. We keep this blog post up to date as we learn more.

Here is the official statement from Fasthosts:

We will be carrying out upgrades to core network infrastructure between the hours of 2300 on Monday 10th October and 0600 Tuesday 11th October.

During this time there is an expected impact to live services lasting approximately 2 seconds. The services impacted are the shared web hosting and e-mail platforms.

This issue is presently under investigation.
Resolved
Fasthosts has posted on their website that the maintenance is complete and normal services have been resumed.
