Service Issues – Update

Category : Blog

Dear Customers

Just a quick update to the issues affecting service over the past couple of days.

The notice regarding service issues is still in place at the datacentre, however, I currently cannot identify any issues with site loading times, so I am assuming, for now, that the issue is resolved.

I will keep an eye out for any new notices regarding the slow websites, and if there are any changes, I will post them on the announcements page and the Latest News section of the site.

Many Thanks


4/5th May Service Issues

Category : Blog

Dear Customers,

It has been highlighted that websites may load slower than usual, this is due to an issue with the Comcast network in the US (This is where our servers are based).

Although neither our ISP or, I can imagine any customers ISP is Comcast, they do carry traffic destined for and travelling via the US, as a result the issues they are experiencing are likely to cause problems for some of the smaller websites hosted from the US.

As far as I am aware, the issues are intermittent, with recent tests demonstrating little to no difference in the time the websites are taking to load, nevertheless, I will continue to monitor the situation and post an update here when I have an update.

Thank You for your patience
