    Trouble accessing softsphere.com (defensewall website)

    Anyone having trouble accessing softsphere.com (home of defensewall). I've tried throughout the day but can't access it. If I ping the site, it says timed out.

    Just wanted to check if it's just me or if something else is going on.

    TIA

    Hopefully it will be restored again soon. I noticed over the years and especially lately as in recent months, one huge problem in this entire world of internet service, and that is Data Centers need to maintain some sort of auto-switch over to another stable server when some issue interupts the service to the regular one. Of course that doesn't count for extreme elements of nature such as direct lightning strikes that fry circuitry and such, but even then, everything electronic, especially data server facilities which serve multitudes of clients, need an emergency switch over to a dependable alternate source for such events.
