Shared hosting issue

Fri, 16/03/2012 - 09:18

We are experiencing an issue with our shared hosting platform this morning which has resulted in all shared hosting services being unavailable.

The file system on the server went into read-only mode around 09:15 this morning (we are still trying to ascertain why this happened). At the moment the server is performing a file system check to check the integrity of the data. Once this is completed then the server will be back online.

We are working hard to resolve this issue and hope to resume normal service soon. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused.

Scheduled Maintenance: VPS Platform Upgrade

Sat, 10/03/2012 - 23:00 - Sun, 11/03/2012 - 01:00

We will be upgrading the Citrix XenServer hypervisor that powers our VPS platform in this maintenance window. This upgrade will allow us to support new operating systems and provides a number of stability and performance enhancements.

Any disruption should be minimal but all VPSs will be at risk for the duration of this window.

Scheduled maintenance: Data Centre Migration

Fri, 27/01/2012 - 21:00 - Sat, 28/01/2012 - 07:00

In conjunction with engineers from Gyron, we will be migrating all hardware at our primary site, Telstra’s London Hosting Centre, to Gyron’s own Centro Data Centre in Hemel Hempstead. All customer services will be affected during this window.

Sending email servers should queue your inbound email for delivery until the migration is complete. No email should be lost.

No IP addresses, hardware, software or DNS names will change during the migration - this is a physical relocation only - so you don’t need to update any configurations.
