      Downtime this evening - 19th August

      We have just been made aware of the following from our hosting company.

      We're currently investigating some network issues and will update the status site as soon as we know more. In the meantime please accept our apologies for any inconveniences caused.

      We have identified that the cause was a DDoS attack against one of our customers which we have now null routed.

      A full outage report will be provided to affected customers in the morning.
      Obviously this would be the reason why both our webserver and SMTP server were offline this evening.
