09:45AM UK/London - 28th April 2020
The issue with IPv6 in London is known, it is being worked on and I hope to have it back up and running by the end of the day, the issue was caused by the switch being overwhelmed when over a billion IPv6 addresses were used maliciously to scrape google.
It was not an Inception Hosting customer that caused this however it has impacted Inception Hosting as the shared core switch is overwhelmed, Ip6 has been completely disabled upstream.
To mitigate this dedicated IPv6 routing equipment is being set up today so that our IPv6 network can come back online independently.
Sorry for the inconvenience, there are more details to this which in the interest of security cannot be shared as it seems someone or a group of people are targeting hosts in the same data center.
