Server Performance Degredation (Resolved)
  • Priority - Critical
  • Affecting Server - Elite WordPress
  • At approximately 14:20 today we received a critical alert from our networking team that the server had become unresponsive that handles our Managed WordPress services. After a few minutes of troubleshooting, we discovered the root cause and issued a restart of primary services to recover the system to bring back operation to web services. 

    An emergency patch installation to further control the system has been scheduled, notifications will go out to all active hosting accounts on the respective window.

    Thanks

Server Backup Infrastructure (Resolved)
  • Priority - Critical
  • Affecting Server - Elite WordPress
  • There was an issue with our backup architecture on our main server platform that governs our Managed WordPress service.

    The issue was with an internal configuration that caused it to run exceedingly long filling up disk space, as soon as the space was all used up, protection systems launched and shut down websites to protect them.

    The issue was cleared at approximately 845AM and all services were registered as fully online and operational at 900AM.

    This issue has also been permanently resolved and should not incur any further issues in our services.

    Thank you for your business, should you have any issues please do not hesitate to contact us through our support portal.

Hotmail blocking Email (Resolved)
  • Priority - Medium
  • ***CLOSED*** Hotmail has removed the server from their blocking lists.

    ***UPDATE*** Hotmail.com has removed the IP address from its blocked senders, we will continue to monitor the progress and mark the issue resolved once we have seen that the server IPs are completely removed from their systems. This could take 24-48hrs to completely resolve.

    Good afternoon,

    We are receiving reports of Hotmail's email servers listing our primary server as spam. We have no spam records on our system and all global spam lists are reporting us clean.

    We have asked Hotmail to provide proof of the spamming or to delist our server and we are awaiting their response.

    Thank you for your patience.
