11 February 2015 Routine business continuity testing

At 18:00 (GMT) on Wednesday 11 February 2015 we will be testing our business continuity plans which will include the following Registry services (UK & gTLDs):

  • EPP
  • DAC
  • Automaton
  • Online Services
  • Testbed
  • Business Intelligence
  • PRSS

Testing will take up to two hours during which time services will be moved to our second data centre. The above listed Registry services will be unavailable throughout the exercise and Business Intelligence will remain unavailable until around 22:00 (GMT).

The Automaton will not process email requests, but they will be received and queued for processing when it restarts.

At the point of switching, live connections will be disconnected however a new connection should be automatically established by your client when the service is available again.

Any unusual behaviour from our systems following this work should be reported to our customer services team.
