Irish hosting company Hosting365 went dark this morning at around 10:30am according to reports I am receiving. The last time this occurred was last July when there was a fire in a nearby ESB substation if memory serves.
I contacted Hosting365’s Marketing Director, Ed Byrne, about this incident and Ed informed me that:
We are back now. I need to get a full report but we did have a serious issue while electrical engineers we working on the UPS. Human error, incredibly annoying. Will tell all openly when I know.
As I write this, Hosting365’s main site is still offline and not answering pings.
UPDATE – Ed contacted me again to say that he is updating the blog on hosting365status.com with info as he gets it.
