Problems accessing IEDR systems [Resolved]
Posted by Helpdesk Admin on 09 September 2016 08:07 AM


Since about 6:30am our systems have been unable to connect to IEDR to perform operations on .ie domain names, and .ie domains are currently showing as unavailable for registration in the store.

This appears to be an issue with IE Domain Registry systems as their site & console are currently down.

Until service is restored, it will not be possible to register, transfer or renew .ie domains or change name servers.

We will update when we have more information.

Update [11:30]

IEDR have restored connectivity to their systems.

Updates to Automation Systems [Completed]
Posted by Helpdesk Admin on 06 September 2016 02:18 PM

We will be performing updates to our core automation systems on Thursday 8th and Friday 9th September.

Hosting automation systems will be upgraded on Friday morning between 12am and 8am on Friday 9th.

There will be some short outages after 9pm on Thursday to allow for pre-upgrade checks and database snapshots.

Control panels may be intermittently accessible during this time but we recommend not performing any DNS changes or major website changes between 9pm Thursday and 8am Friday as these may be interrupted or delayed.

Email, DNS, SaaS and Cloud VPS services should operate normally during the upgrade, however some short duration outages on shared hosting are possible during this time as individual hosting and database servers are restarted.

As announced previously, the legacy Site Builder 4.5 product is no longer supported due to lack of browser support. Access to SiteBuilder 4.5 will be removed shortly after the upgrade - sites will continue to display but it will no longer be possible to update them using SiteBuilder 4.5. It is recommended to migrate such sites to Parallels Presence Builder 12.

[Update: 00:05]

Upgrades have started, access to control panels will be intermittent.

[Update: 04:00]

All upgrades are completed.
