System outage – Sunday 25 April 2010
April 06 2010
On Sunday 25 April 2010 at 07:00 (BST) Nominet will be performing a major upgrade to their database software. The upgrade will cause their registration systems to be unavailable from 07:00 until 13:00 (BST).
During this time Online Services including web domain manager and PRSS, EPP, and ENUM registration systems will be unavailable. The automaton will not process email requests, but they will be received and queued for processing when it restarts. All of their registration systems will restart simultaneously at 13:00, at which point EPP requests will be accepted and the automaton will start to process queued requests – it is therefore possible that an EPP request may be processed sooner than an earlier automaton request for the same domain name.
WHOIS and DAC services will be moved to Nominets backup data centre so will continue to operate as normal. This upgrade is to their database software only and no functionality changes will be made to their systems during this maintenance outage.
We would like to apologise for any inconvenience that this may cause.
