Uptime report for January, 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.

Another brilliant month for uptime at simplewebhosting.co.uk

January 5th, 2011

Yes, in December 2010 we achieved an brilliant 99.98% uptime smashing our uptime guarantee yet again! In fact, our average uptime for 2010 was 99.98% – which we think you’ll agree is pretty impressive.

Happy New Year!

Upcoming VAT rate change (sorry)

December 17th, 2010

The Government has announced it will increase the UK standard rate of VAT from 17.5% to 20% on Tuesday, 4th January 2011.  You can find out more at http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/vat/forms-rates/rates/rate-increase.htm

Therefore, invoices raised after 4th January will reflect the new higher VAT rate of 20%

You won’t need to take any action – our billing system will do everything for you – we’re just making you aware.
