Fasthosts goes titsup, blames DNS blunder

Monday morning blues for biz customers

Fasthosts went titsup this morning after DNS issues blighted the service.

Biz customers complained about the outage and demanded an immediate fix from Fasthosts, which has been responding to the technical crisis via its Twitter account.

Others moaned that they were unable to get through on Fasthosts' support phone line, which suggested that it had been inundated with gripes.

At time of writing, the website hosting service had been out of action for more than two hours. Worse still, the firm was unable to tell customers when it would return to normal.

Inevitably, some folk were already demanding compensation for the loss of service, which has probably hit some Blighty businesses hard at the start of a working week.

Just after 9:30am this morning, Fasthosts coughed to the technical cock-up.

The Register sought comment from Fasthosts, but it hadn't got back to us at time of publication. ®
