    The Dallas datacenter we use will be undergoing scheduled maintenance to increase network capacity. This will result in brief downtime.

    Services affected: Dallas Shared Hosting, InstaFree website and forum.

    Is this why https://musicfor.us/ has been down for a while?

    Disregard...

    I have no idea why/how, but I tried one of the uptime monitor sites and it said my site was up. So, I rebooted the router and now it works. I have no idea but you can disregard this whole thing and I'm gonna blame it on my ISP.

    No outages yet. Had to be something on your end.

    Oh bloody hell. That quote is actually straight from the datacenter. Ugh! ha ha! I didn't verify that. Well...I believe the date is accurate anyway. I will verify with them just to be sure.

    Yeah, it was something with my ISP. Dunno what or why, but rebooting the router did the trick. I tried on multiple devices, so it wasn't a 'me' issue. I got bored and tried an uptime/site online check site and it said it was up, so I reset the router and it was good again.

    It was out for hours so I knew something had to be up. We don't ever have outages that long!

    Not that long ago, some other company bought my local ISP. I've been less than impressed with the new owners. I never thought I'd say that I want FairPoint back, but here we are...

    My websites are down as well. Not sure if it's still undergoing maintenance or not but I'm sure Bryan is already aware and working on it. Hope you guys get it up soon!

    Unscheduled scheduled maintenance. Sorry guys. The datacenter dropped the ball on this. First they messed up the day, then the time. Very frustrating.

    There will be a quick reboot of the server later tonight. Should take less than 3 minutes.

    Thanks for the update Bryan. Does that mean the maintenance has finished? I am still experiencing problems with my websites so I am guessing that it is still ongoing? Would they be resolved after the server reboot?

    The maintenance is over and has been for a bit now. I'm going to give the server a quick reboot in about 5 minutes and we will see if that resolves it. Best I can tell, all the sites are running...except for yours. I see what's going on there.
