Is it Down? Status Pages for 50 Top Hosting Providers

Online Servers

The modern marketplace runs on the assumption of an “always connected” Internet. Web hosting providers promise uptime rates of 99%, 99.99%, or even 100%—and while many of them do everything in their considerable power to deliver on these claims, Murphy’s Law continues to reign. Even the most reliable hosting provider needs to do server maintenance or deal with an outage on occasion, and when they do, it’s crucial that you have access to the latest info on how long your server (and your site) will be out of commission.

Server status pages are a tool used by hosting providers to deliver timely updates, announcements, and alerts to their customers. They’re often part of a given provider’s support forum, although they can also take the form of a dedicated page that updates automatically and on-demand. Since every second your site is down can mean customers (and profits) lost, it’s a good idea to know whether your provider’s just doing a bit of routine maintenance or dealing with a major outage.

Not every host extends the courtesy of up-to-the-minute server status updates to their clients, but we’ve collected the status pages of fifty who do. These links will take you directly to the status or support forum pages that provide the latest news on a provider’s server maintenance and outages.

NOTE: Some status pages may require you to log into your hosting account before you can access them, so have your user name and password handy.
