Update: Brief Service Interruption

Earlier today, at approximately 13:00 UTC, some of our sites experienced a short interruption in service. The issue was identified as a connection slowdown to one of our database management systems. Simply put, this system enables communication between our database and various applications. The situation was rectified at approximately 13:30 UTC and all affected sites were reactivated and restored shortly after.

We are still investigating the root cause of this slowdown and we will make sure to put in place preventative measures moving forward.

Our apologies for any inconvenience this may have caused and we thank you for your understanding. Feel free to reach us directly at publishing@newspaperdirect.com if you have any further questions / concerns.
