Server theft knocks Peter Gabriel off the web

Raid on ISP's data centre

Beginner's guide to SSL certificates

Peter Gabriel's online music empire is reduced to a holding page, following the theft of servers from his web host over the weekend.

According to the web monitoring firm Netcraft, Gabriel's servers are hosted by Rednet Ltd, although that appears to be a defunct brand of a UK company called Opal Telecom, which in turn is a wholly owned subsidiary of Carphone Warehouse.

But details are sketchy and as it's a public holiday in the UK, we'll fill in the gaps tomorrow.

In the meantime here is the message posted at time of writing on the web-savvy musician's site, PeterGabriel.com.

Tex on petergabriel.com: " We'll be back soon - apologies for the lack of service."

Real World, Peter Gabriel and WOMAD web services are currently off-line. Our servers were stolen from our ISP's data centre on Sunday night - Monday morning. We are working on restoring normal service as soon as possible.
