Planned Maintenance

Planned maintenance is always performed outside of peak hours wherever possible (which means we'll do the maintenance between 00:00 and 06:00).  Sometimes this isn't possible, and in some cases it's actually better to do the work during office hours (for example with backup servers, where they're less heavily used during the day).

Unplanned outages

Occasionally things go wrong unexpectedly. When this happens we need to prioritise fixing the issue, especially if it affects many customers.  However we'll always try to keep you updated.
