FastHosts Down Again

Our clients using FastHosts are contacting us today again saying things are not working.

The problems we face with this is that we spend hours looking into things that out of our control.

FastHosts is one of the larger hosting companys but it seems that they are effected by Downtime more than others.

Fasthosts Internet Ltd has warned UK businesses not to spam their customers with unsolicited newsletters and marketing emails as this is a growing concern on the same day that issue this statement the service fails. One could look at this and think that could see a failure coming sooner than later as the growing number of spam emails continues. Every hosting company has a limit to what it can handle.
