Along with many of you we have been experiencing outages for all of our websites hosted with these providers. This is due to an issue with two core switches at the Endurance International Group’s data center in Provo,UT. Most sites have been offline and back periodically through the day although there are many that haven’t seen any up time at all.
As of the time of this article many of us hosting our websites on one of these providers have noticed our sites coming back online. This being said it may not mean its up for good today. There are a few places that you can find information on the outages and stay updated on the issues.
Information on the actual data center itself can be found at enduranceresponse.com which should let us all know when everything is back to normal and running smoothly. If you notice any resources that are posting on this issue please drop a comment and we will add to our list of resources:

- Bluehost says they are trying to answer phone calls but aren’t having the best of luck with the overload.
If your website is having issues due to being on one of these hosts please let us know in the comments as well as those resources that are noticed to inform everyone of whats going on.
August 2, 2013 4:34 EST – It looks like the datacenter has replaced one of the two faulty switches and are rebooting. This means that a few of you with your websites up may see it down during the reboot but others will see theirs come up here shortly.
