May 2018 Business Continuity Testing

As part of our commitment to ensuring the infrastructure underpinning .UK and our gTLD services remains secure, reliable and resilient, we are undertaking some important business continuity testing in May to test the resilience of our infrastructure. There will be no interruption to DNS and all websites and email addresses using domain names that we host will remain available throughout the work. We aim to avoid interruption to services, however there will be an increased risk of system unavailability for registrar systems whilst critical activities are completed. We will announce the specific times and services of any planned downtime in our System Announcements and will communicate to registrars should an unplanned systems outage occur.
