   posted by sibbi on 26-Mar-2024 15:19:36 (412 reads)

Our hosting provider Server4you suffered what they called an "infrastructure incident" on March 21st. Water seems to have gotten into the room holding the batteries for the data center, which caused systematic failure which affected amongst other things, their routers, DNS subsystem and some of the machines they host.

It's taken them 5 days so far to recover from this incident and it's still ongoing but at least our network activity seems to have been restored. Our server was not directly affected by the outage, but network connectivity to it was however, so we dropped out 5 days ago and have been out ever since.

We apologise for this incident and the downtime, we have been looking into some sort of a future plan for the site involving a more modern virtualised hosting environment with a CMS which would be easier to maintain and keep running, but we're very understaffed and life keeps us busy with other things.

Kind regards

OMG - a provider with just two physical locations, one in France and one in US? And starting price at 20 euros? You should perhaps consider switching provider to one that has multiple sites in multiple regions (and cheaper too).

- digital ocean
- vultr
- linode/akamai
- upcloud
- ungleich
- many more (like MS Azure and AWS, heh)

Nice to have you back.

We all had a feeling you are understaffed but did you reach out for help among the users lately?
