Major Outage at Fasthosts

Many dedicated server customers at Fasthosts are offline today due to a hardware failure in a core network switch. The downtime is the latest in a series of performance problems at Fasthosts, one of the largest UK hosting providers. In December a system-wide password reset caused problems for Fasthosts customers, many of whom found their websites disabled when they couldn’t access databases or control panels. The reset was prompted by an earlier security incident. Fasthosts also had extended outages in July 2007 and June 2006. Fasthosts was acquired by 1&1 Internet in May 2006.
