When I booted up my PC this morning I couldn’t access either my main e-mail accounts or website, so I shot off an e-mail (using another account) to Webfusion support at 08:23. At 09:08 I received the following reponse:
Thank you for your query. Currently we are experiencing a denial of service attack at our Nottingham data centre which has caused connectivity problems effecting web, email and ftp access. Our engineers are currently working to correct the problem and we hope to have it resolved shortly. For all updates please see http://www.hosting-status.pipex.net. I hope this is of some assistance. If you have any other queries please do not hesitate to contact us again.

Now, I’m impressed with that. Not quite so enamoured by the nasty people carrying out a Denial Of Service (DOS) attack on the data centre, but quite impressed with Pipex’s support. Thanks guys!
