Email Server Maintenance on Monday, June 26, 2023

We have received notification from our email server provider of upcoming maintenance. This may affect customers with widomaker.com (or tni.net) email addresses, as well as customers, with their own custom domain names, using our Enhanced Email hosting services. This maintenance will NOT affect customers with email hosted on our Plesk hosting servers.

On Monday, June 26, 2023, from 12:30 p.m. – 3:30 p.m. EDT, we will be performing service migration work and […] improvements. We are expecting 5 to 15 minutes of downtime during the migration as we need to restart our services. Requests made during this downtime window will fail, and you’ll want to reattempt them once services are restored. We do not expect any other service impacts or downtime.
