Wednesday 24 November 2021 | Invalid Certificate or Untrusted Certificate

If you are seeing an ‘invalid certificate’ message when receiving or sending email @ your domain name, just ‘ok’ it. Or you may be seeing an 'untrusted certificate' message. You have to 'ok' this or allow it as an exception. The secure certificates used for email on our servers have been updated and this may affect some of you. For more info read our FAQ at

Tuesday 13 October 2020 | Server migration COMPLETED

Around midday we will be migrating all sites to a new, faster server. There will be some downtime when this happens, but we will try to limit this to the absolute minimum. The estimate from my hosting company is for this to be around 15 minutes. Keep watching this site for updates on the day.

11.20 - Migration still scheduled for midday (40 mins from now).
12.00 - Migration has started and sites are now offline.
12.20 - Server back, sites active and being tested now.
13.00 - Only a few minor errors detected (and corrected). All sites appear to be working fine.
