Stay in the Loop on Maintenance Updates

At Media Temple, we are always listening to our customers’ feedback to ensure we address any questions and concerns they might have. 

Through the feedback we received from our MVPs (you!), we understand that we need to do a better job making sure you and your team(s) is properly informed about scheduled maintenance. One particular piece of feedback we received that matters a lot is “You need to better communicate when you are planning maintenance.”

Rest assured, we heard you and have improved the ways we communicate these alerts. We also want to highlight some of the existing ways of viewing maintenance alerts that you may not know about.

Check Our System Status Page

Our System Status Page always shows the current status of our products and services, as well as notes on planned and emergency maintenance. You can check it anytime.

Watch Your Account Center

If a service of yours will be affected by a disruption because of an upgrade or other maintenance, we create a Support Request ticket in your account with details. You can find recent notices in the Support Center section at the bottom of your Account Center. Also, be sure your Account Owner info is up to date and that emails from our support team are not forwarding to your junk folder.
