November 2018 Business Continuity Testing

The infrastructure and technology through which we provide our core services provide critical services to the UK and beyond. We are committed to ensuring the infrastructure underpinning .UK and our gTLD services remains secure, reliable and resilient and we are undertaking some important business continuity testing in November. 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 have planned the work to minimise interruption to services, however there will be periods of system unavailability for registrars whilst critical activities are completed. The specific times and services impacted are listed in our System Announcement.
