Important nameserver update

April 25th, 2011

The machine that runs one of our nameservers has recently changed. ns1.simpledns.co.uk now points to – if you use your own nameservers then you will need to update this immediately. This typically applies to reseller customers.

No other customers will be affected by this change.

It’s no April Fool – it’s our uptime report!

April 1st, 2011

Our uptime figures for March 2011 are in with a whopping 99.99% uptime across our network – now that’s no joke!*

*Apologies for the pun.

Another excellent uptime report!

March 1st, 2011

It may have been a short month but we’re still proud of our 99.99% uptime achieved during February, 2011 with all but three servers reaching a perfect 100% uptime.

Uptime report for January, 2011

February 2nd, 2011

Our uptime figures are in once again – not as good a month as we’d expect for January with uptime of 99.91% – don’t worry, we’ll be working extra hard to make sure that improves for February.

MySQL upgrade on server10.simplewebserver.co.uk

January 18th, 2011

Customers with hosting on server10.simplewebserver.co.uk should be aware that we will be upgrading MySQL from the 5.0 branch to 5.1 early next week.

This shouldn’t cause any issues but you should be aware of the impact of the change:


This will be a one-way upgrade and it will not be possible to downgrade afterwards to do be sure you have suitable backups if required.

Of course, if you have any questions, please get in touch.
