Submission + - Major fire at data center

Puppet Master writes: "I work for a domain registrar and hosting company, we've been unable to process credit card transactions since just after mid-night. website is down, phone lines go to fast busy signal...

Then found this. A major fire at the data center shut down their entire credit card processing operations.

They hope to have it up in a matter of hours, not days. But if you are attempting to purchase something and your card does not go through, now you know why."
