Thousands of South African Websites Offline Today
A datacentre problem put thousands of South African websites offline this morning from around 07h00 SAST to 11h00 SAST. The problem occurred at Internet Solutions Bryanston datacentre. All sites locally hosted by Afrihost, including all Graphicline sites and our clients' sites hosted on servers in this datacentre. E-mail servers were also down.
The exact number of sites affected is unknown, The best we can do is make an educated guess: Dedicated servers as well as shared hosting servers were all down; so the number of websites offline today will number in the thousands.
