new video website

We have created and launched a new responsive website for Colum Maguire director. This portfolio site is based on The vimeo API to allow high def video to be streamed with ease.




Server reboot

We are writing to inform you we will shortly begin rebooting our Linux shared web hosting servers in order to apply a mission-critical security patch. At no point were any of our servers compromised, but it is very important that we patch this bug in order to prevent any possible attacks.

Websites may become inaccessible for periods of up to 10 minutes. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and appreciate your patience throughout this time.

We will keep webhostingstatus.com up to date with the progress of these updates.


Joomla/WordPress Websites

We are currently seeing further attempts from a large scale botnet targeting Joomla/Wordpress Administration areas. This attack has recently increased its hit rate and we have taken action to protect the targeted areas from these attacks. As a result of this you may now find you are prompted to pass a CAPTCHA check when attempting to login to your WordPress / Joomla website. Information regarding this botnet was also recently published by the BBC and you can read that article at http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-22152296
