I completely understand that this may cause confusion and you will have additional questions. I am happy to provide any information I have to help you.

However, to keep the contents of this topic clean, clear and concise, I ask that you carefully read the Outage Communication Rules before posting.

In a nutshell:

  • Please keep the posts about the outage in this topic, and all posts not about this outage outside of this topic.
  • Please post relevant questions only that have not been answered yet. It may be compelling to ask obvious questions like “when will this be fixed”, but basic information like that will be put in this message as soon as we know it.
  • Please carefully check the known symptoms and affected components.
    • If you are on the affected components, you are almost certainly affected by the outage. If so, please refrain from simply stating you are affected, it does not help get your service back up faster.
    • If you are not on the affected components but do experience all of the symptoms, please say so below so we can check if our list is incomplete.
    • If you do not experience all listed issues and are not on the components that are known to be affected, the issue you are experiencing is most likely not related to this outage. If so, please create a new topic in the Hosting Support category and describe the issue there.
  • If you say you are affected by the outage, please always include your website URL. I can’t check if you are affected by the outage if you don’t say which of your websites is affected.

Posts that do not follow these rules may be deleted without warning. This is to help ensure that all the relevant information is easily available to everyone reading this topic.

ah, good. I was actually using it today and didn’t realize something was down until i tried to use the app installer. CP was working though.

im not sure, I think its off and on currently. I was able to use Filemanager and CP but not the app installer. Im not sure currently but some functions may be online again

It looks like services and going up and down randomly.

The timeline of the original post is not being consistently updated as the outages keep changing.

Apologies for any inconvenience this may cause, we are working to fix it.


It seems that the control panel is back up for now, but Softaculous is still offline.

So things are looking better, but it’s not resolved yet.

And with outages like these, it often takes some time for the services to be completely back up and stable again. So I would like to give it some time before concluding that it’s fully resolved.


okay…we are expecting it to be back by tommorrow but can you please the cause of ths outage technically…i am curious to know

OK, I celebrated a little bit too soon.

The control panel has been fixed around 16:00 UTC. However, as part of the fix, the control panel is now available on a different IP address, and the old IP address will remain down.

As we probably all know, it can take some time for the regular control panel URL to start working for everyone due to DNS caching. Fortunately, you can work around it by using a different control panel URL, such as

Softaculous was also fixed around 18:00 UTC.
