Due to essential maintenance work prompted by the latest security patch releases, it will be necessary to perform a reboot of the server your website is hosted from during the following maintenance window;

Tuesday 11th February 2014, between the hours of 18:00 - 22:00.

At the point of restart your website will become unavailable, however downtime is not expected to exceed 15 minutes, we will always strive to keep disruption to an absolute minimum. Unfortunately it is not possible to give an exact time for the reboot as the number of patches released varies significantly each month.

Tuesday's release is currently expected to contain the following;

The Microsoft based servers have around 20 updates across all products including Windows Malicious Software Removal Tool, there are a small number of updates for the majority of Linux based servers as well with some relating to the core OS and Java.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused however this work is essential to maintain the systems and to allow us to continue to provide a robust and resilient service and ensure your site remains secure. These regular monthly updates are included as part of the managed hosting service that we provide to you.
