Demon hosting back online
After a week off..
Demon Web Hosting is back online today after technical problems downed the service for a week.
In a statement, the company said:
We experienced a file system software failure on one of our many Demon hosting platforms and our engineers continue to work around the clock to bring this small hosting platform back into service. Due to the nature of the software failure, detailed and specialist activities have been required which have taken a longer period of time to complete. However, we anticipate that service will be restored in the morning of Tuesday 3rd October. We apologise to affected customers for the inconvenience caused."
Essential maintenance carried out last Monday 25 September at midday started the problem.
By Friday 29 September, engineers were promising a fix in 24 hours.
Demon was one of the UK's first ISPs, founded in 1992. In 1998 it was bought by Thus. ®
