Routine business continuity testing

On Thursday 24 January 2013 we will be testing our business continuity plans which will include the following Registry services.

Real Time DAC
Time Delay DAC
Registrar Resources Website
Nominet Website
Testbed Services
Online Services

During the test these services will be moved to our second data centre and will therefore be unavailable for periods during the exercise.
Services will be moved between 18:00 (GMT) and 21:00 (GMT) on Thursday 24 January 2013.  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 service team.
If you have any questions please contact our customer services support team on 01865 332233 or by email to
