May 12th, 2009: Reason for Service Outage

FYI, I received this response from the hosting company regarding the outage today from 5:45 ET to 6:21 ET:
An entire data center went down, ([located] in Dallas, TX). It was a router issue.

Possible Outage: Tue May 12, 2009 5:45pm ET

Hi Folks
Just thought I'd post this here as I have lost access to the cpanel and email for my account (which would affect most of yours as well). It could just be a hiccup, but it's still down after a few tries. I will stay on it and update this post when the server is accessible again.

If you have any further questions, you can leave them as a comment here, or use my alternate email listed in the sidebar.

More to come...
Greg Campbell

*** UPDATE ***

All of my hosting accounts that use a cPanel interface were down from about 5:45pm ET until 6:21pm ET when all are now back up. Sorry for the downtime. Will seek further explanation and post here.
