Thank you again for your patience, we understand that you may have been frustrated, however, I can assure you that Abs and I have been working on this for non-stop for the past 38 hours without sleep.

Update 3: Our team has been working on rebuilding a new server in Melbourne, which is the same location as the backup server, this will ensure a faster restoration time. This will mean that the IP address will need to be changed, customers using our nameservers will not need to make any changes
We're still waiting for our upstream carrier to complete their works, however in the event they take longer than expected, which appears to be the case, we'll move ahead with our plan. We have had concerns about this upstream carrier and was progressively moving customers away from their network due to issues like this over the past 12 months, however, due to COVID, we've delayed those migrations.
Please understand that we're working as hard as we can get your services back online, we apologise for the inconvenience and will provide further updates as soon as possible. Jamie & Abs.
Update 2: Our upstream carrier has had difficulties resolving this network-related outage. We're currently attempting all escalation methods to restore connectivity. We're genuinely apologetic to you for this outage.
We'll be organising credits and rebates for applicable customers and we'll send out a report detailing this incident.
As soon as we have further updates, we'll reach out. - Jamie & Abs from DreamIT
