well you might or might not know the actual story what is going on.
As of now their Windows Server hosting platform is down again...
This has been going on since Thursday, they first said it was down to security problems, then a network ACL issue, and now back to a windows OS problem.
Today being the 1st November, sites are not resolving. And they last updated was 0800 GMT :
Summary of the issue: Our windows hosting service was subjected to an attack, that affected the operating systems on some of the servers. Due to this, some websites on these servers ceased to resolve, while others faced problems with database connectivity. However, our team moved quickly to ensure that the websites were secure and no data was lost. We have taken extensive measures to fix the server issues, and to ensure that a similar problem does not reoccur
UPDATE @ 8:00 GMT (1st Nov, 2009): With regard to the issue with the attack that we had reported on our Windows Hosting Servers, we are glad to inform you that our System Administration Team is very close to having the issue completely resolved. As an additional Security measure, before restoring the Servers to full functionality, we will be isolating these Servers from outside network connections to conduct a Final Security Audit. This would result in all Windows Hosting Services being down for a short duration of time. We apologize once again for the inconvenience caused and request you to bear with us in this regard.
So most if not all Windows hosting sold via the DI/LB OrderBox will have this problem.
Ill update the thread when I actually see an update on the LB site... (I wont hold my breath as the updates arent exactly quick).
UPDATE: While the issue has been identified and addressed, as an additional security measure before restoring the servers to full functionality, we have isolated the servers from external network connections to conduct a comprehensive security audit. This would result in all Windows Hosting Services being unavailable for a few hours, during which the hosted websites would not be functional.
We are extremely grateful for your continued patience, and apologize for the inconvenience caused. We consider security of your websites as the utmost priority, and are working assiduously to ensure that this issue is fixed once and for all. We shall continue to update this post with information about progress being made on a regular basis. http://logicboxes.com/support/
They started having "issues" that I know of on the 28th October, before that I do not know.
Here is an updfate from the LB site :
UPDATE: 2nd Nov, 6am: We have begun the process to bring all services back online, and are continuing to monitor them as we do so. Several of the servers have already been restored. Please watch this post for further updates.
Looking at the OrderBox platform it still has problems even if the above is true... However as today is Monday, they might actually have some DEV's in now to look at things, DI/LB development department are a Monday through Friday bunch...
