This morning when checking email I got a unknown host error, that was rather unexpected. After a few more checks it looked like a problem. When logging a ticket with 8-95.com, my host, it was learned the data center which physically houses the server the domain is on had a fiber line cut. Not only did they have problems with their primary circuit but their redundancy failed as well, not good. I’ve been following the outage on Webhostingtalk and I should consider myself lucky my site is not business related.
Since around 10:40 this morning that facility has been down but as of 6:15 looks like we’re back up. According to the thread on Webhostingtalk the carrier has routed around the fiber cut.
