Solidhost (own website and VPSs) appears to be down again for about an hour now. It looks again like a network issue (similar to the one caused last week). I am reporting this here as their website and ticketing system are off, thus there is no way of contacting them.
I keep being told it will be resolved soon. I think it's a router at Nikhef. One died last Sunday there and it has been running on a backup. The one that died was shceduled to be replaced in around 5 hours.
Thats just my guess though, I won't find out till its fixed.
Solidhost is down for more than one hour (or network issue). My own server id down also, of course.
Tonino is right. There should be a special place for messages about outages. Solidhost forum isn't enough as we can see. This is not a first network problem at this week.
I also check dnsreport.com and other similar services (asking for solidhost.com):
"A timeout occurred getting the NS records from your nameservers! None of your nameservers responded fast enough. They are probably down or unreachable."
So, this is not my network problem (if someone will ask about that).
Thanks for contacting me, I got your message. I just wanted to make sure that you are aware of the issue.
The problem seems fixed now. Have you got any information on what was going on?
We have been for more than a year with solidhost and the past month is the only period that we 've faced such repeated issues. Before that, we have only faced a couple of about 1 hour network outage incidents for the whole year, which is quite good.
I think that there must be a specific course of action in order to avoid this from happening again.
