Route 66 News suffered about a nine-hour outage because of problems with its host, HostGator.
We get hosting services from longtime roadie Guy Randall, who is a reseller for HostGator. He did nothing wrong, but apparently something went awry during the wee hours Wednesday, according to HostGator:
At this time the issues have been identified to be a operating system update that has caused issues across our reseller servers. We are working as dilligently as possible to resolve these issues across the board, and will continue to update this forum post as more information becomes available.
The site came back about 11 a.m. Central. Normal programming will resume shortly.
