WordPress.com goes down for a while
WordPress.com is the free blog hosting service powered by WordPress blogging engine.
It also offers paid solutions to customers who want to get extra features.
The service is used by some of the most popular blogs on the web today.
WordPress.com servers went down for a while earlier today. It took them around 2 hours to get back online.
Automattic came out with a blog post clearing all the doubts over the problems faced by the service. It was a clear and frank response to the questions posted by their customers and users.
I know this sucked for you guys as much as it did for us — the entire team was on pins and needles trying to get your blogs back as soon as possible. I hope it will be much longer than four years before we face a problem like this again.
