Zed1.net finally came back sometime before 9 this morning, only to disappear again! It was back again after midday. I finally received an email explaining:
“Some customers may have been experiencing intermittent problems with the server over the weekend. We have been working continually to rectify it and have now identified the problem, which is currently being worked on.”
They have decided to bring forward their Systems Upgrade Schedule which should result in a faster more reliable service. We shall see.
In the meantime I am still assessing other hosting providers. I’m even looking at reseller services which will allow me to host multiple domains.
