Our records indicate that you are a current customer.
At about 11 am EST today, there was a power failure at the building that our datacenter is in. This power failure affected an entire city block and the electric company was quickly aware and working on getting power restored.
There was also a problem with one of our power backups, which affected a few of our servers. This caused these few servers to be without power for approximately 45 minutes. We are looking into why this occurred and will be either replacing or fixing that unit.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused. Thank you for your patience!
