Hello DreamHost Customers!
We are currently experiencing a non-pervasive network degradation. This
degradation is affecting some of our customers, though at the moment we
are unable to determine how many of you are affected, and to what extent
you are affected.
You may experience your site loading slowly, or not at all. If you do
experience such symptoms, their serverity may cyclically grow and diminish
The source of the degradation appears to be centered in the networks of
one of our upstream providers. Unfortunately, although our upstream
provider is aware of the problem, we have unable to communicate with any
of their technicians working on this issue.
We will continue our inquiries until this matter is resolved.
Additionally, we will keep you informed in a timely fashion of any further
We are very sorry if this degradation has caused you any inconvenience.
Your patience is much appreciated.
Happy DreamHost Network Team!
Thank you for taking the time to read this announcement,
The DreamHost Announcement Team
