Beginning next week, our server providers will be performing routine security updates to our Cloud Servers. These security updates are necessary to ensure our servers are protected from known security vulnerabilities. This means our servers will experience downtime whilst these updates are performed, downtime is estimated to be 1 hour or less. This will mean, if hosting a website with us, the site will be offline during this time.
Unfortunately it is not possible for us to give you an exact timeframe when the necessary security updates will be applied. This will only be determined by our supplier immediately before the update. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
