14 February 2017 - Planned System Maintenance
On Tuesday 14 February maintenance will be taking place for approximately two hours from 06:00 - 08:00 GMT (UTC).
The following systems will be unavailable during this time and connections will be reset:
- Web Domain Manager
- Online Services
- Registrar Resources
- WHOIS Services

Changes being released during this maintenance window include changes to the Registrar Change Handshake process. From 14 February the new format of these notifications will be updated. An example is shown below:
The following message was sent from the Automaton:
A request has been made to release the 11 domain names:

to the tag:
The transaction can be completed either by using Web Domain Manager
or the EPP handshake command with the case-id:
