    • Hello Michael,

      Thank you for contacting us today. We absolutely understand your disappointment, since our goal is to be up at all times as well.

      Due to the nature of shared web hosting, it took quite some time to complete a full file system check. All services are returned to normal function at this time.

      At this time we do not have a notification system in place, I have forwarded your suggestion to our management team. There are many 3rd party .Monitoring Services available that can send notifications when it sees issues.

      If you have any further questions, feel free to post them below.
      Thank you,

  • I am in Hawaii. I received my last email at 5.24am Hawaii time. It is now 3.24pm. No email and no websites. Clients can’t even send emails, and they don’t receive information that the problem is temporary. Potential clients that might have visited our websites are unlikely to return. When will the problem be fixed, and what will you do to prevent future outages of this kind? Why didn’t you email your biz112 clients that there was a problem? I am very disappointed.

  • Since we have been down almost 9 hours and counting, I assume we will be reimbursed for a year of hosting since you are beyond your guaranteed up time.  This is unacceptable.  Clients are waiting for critical emails for their business.

    Complete early morning on 7/18?  You mean after midnight on 7/17 or the time we get up in the morning on Friday?

  • Isn’t there anyway to at least get up a page that says “we’re experiencing technical difficulties” or something similar so customers aren’t just getting nothing?

  • Why doesn’t InMotion have a backup? And how will you compensate your customers for losing an entire day of revenue?

  • I don’t know how the server business works.  If my computer goes down, I can swap in a new, regularly-cloned, bootable drive, and be back up and running within minutes, losing only the data since the last backup.

    How does your business not work this way?  Shouldn’t there be duplicate servers ready to go on a moment’s notice? One dies, power on the next. 

     Again, I have no idea if that’s possible, but it sure should be.  A day without email, in 2014, is brutal.

    • Hello Gary,

      I totally understand the frustration that goes with the server downtime. Unfortunately, the recovery operations for the server do take some time, and it’s not possible to give an accurate ETA because of the data recovery efforts. There is a large amount of data involved in the process, and the rate at which it is being checked/recovered can vary. The best way I can describe it in layman’s terms is similar to when you use a Windows computer and you take a large set of files and you move it from one location to another. The window typically gives you a time estimate, but the greater the number of files, the less accurate that estimated time of completion becomes.

      I apologize I cannot be more specific than that without becoming too technical. The systems team is working as fast they can to get the server up and operational once again.

      Kindest regards,
      Arnel C.

    • Hello Jared,

      I sincerely appreciate your suggestion. There are definitely ways to create backup systems, but there are definitely differences in scale for a server of this nature. We do appreciate your patience and understand the frustration involved with the downtime.

      Our systems team is working to make the server operational as soon as possible.

      Regards,
      Arnel C.

  • this is ridiculous. It’s been over 7 hours and all it can say is no ETA.   How is that possible?  we need some sort of ETA to tell our screaming employers.
